The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Differential Diagnosis A Visual Learning Approach

The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Differential Diagnosis A Visual Learning Approach

Author: Andrew P. Winterstein, Sharon V. Clark Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/11/2019

As clinicians strive to teach students the ability to think critically and to commit to a diagnosis, the ability to make that commitment is one of the most difficult steps for clinicians in training. With many possible injuries and conditions, and an equally large number of diagnostic elements, a clear and logical method is needed. The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Differential Diagnosis: A Visual Learning Approach provides an approach that helps the reader sort through the possibilities and think about the clinical evaluation within a clinical thinking framework using a visual mapping approach. The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Differential Diagnosis is not designed to be a how-to evaluation text. Rather, it is designed to create a framework that allows the reader to think differently about differential diagnoses, access existing knowledge in anatomy and clinical evaluation, and assess information for the purpose of making higher-order clinical decisions. Dr. Andrew P. Winterstein and Sharon V. Clark have organised The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Differential Diagnosis by body part, as well as by location in the body. The reader will be able to examine the possible diagnoses by location and approach the evaluation in a more focused and organised fashion. This method of evaluation also allows the reader the opportunity to apply evidence-based principles to the clinical evaluation process. The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Differential Diagnosis takes a visual learning approach with an emphasis on diagrams, tables, and boxes to illustrate the visual evaluation framework. In addition, each chapter offers a clinical case to provide a springboard for approaching the differential diagnosis process. The Athletic Trainer's Guide to Differential Diagnosis: A Visual Learning Approach will enhance the athletic training student and clinician's critical thinking skills, as well as be an excellent resource for self-assessment and preparation for certification.

Physical Activity and the Gastro-Intestinal Tract Responses in health and disease

Physical Activity and the Gastro-Intestinal Tract Responses in health and disease

Author: Roy J. Shephard Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/09/2019

The organs of the gastro-intestinal tract play an essential role in sustained physical activity, but their consideration in exercise-related literature has, to this point, been limited. Physical Activity and the Gastro-Intestinal Tract is the first book to explain the function and response to exercise of the gastro-intestinal system, in cases of both health and disease, and helps to shed light on the role they play in acute and chronic exercise. Professor Roy Shephard synthesises previously disparate research to explain the physiology, function, pathology of disease and role of exercise in both health and chronic disease, covering topics including: physical activity and the oesophagus gastro-duodenal function and physical activity physical activity and peptic ulcers physical activity and gastro-oesophageal cancers physical activity and the function of the large bowel physical activity and chronic intestinal inflammation. With each chapter including a thorough bibliography and signposts to further reading, Physical Activity and the Gastro-Intestinal Tract provides a complete reference for understanding how exercise affects the function of the digestive organs. It is an important text for academics and upper-level students in sports medicine and exercise physiology, and for health professionals in preventative medicine.
