ACSM's Clinical Exercise Physiology

ACSM's Clinical Exercise Physiology

Author: American College of Sports Medicine Format: Hardback Release Date: 01/03/2019

ACSM's Clinical Exercise Physiology adapts and expands upon the disease-related content from ACSM's Resource Manual for Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription, 7th Edition, to create a true classroom textbook. This new resource offers research-based coverage of more than 35 conditions commonly seen in practice-from a host of cardiovascular disorders to immunological/hematological disorders. Condition chapters are organized by disease types and then divided into sections that cover specific conditions from a pathological and etiological perspective. To provide a complete view of clinical exercise physiology, the book also covers important considerations and foundational elements, such as screening, pharmacology, and electrocardiography. As an American College of Sports Medicine publication, the text offers the unsurpassed quality and excellence that has become synonymous with titles by the leading exercise science organization in the world. eBook available. Fast, smart, and convenient, today's eBooks can transform learning. These interactive, fully searchable tools offer 24/7 access on multiple devices, the ability to highlight and share notes, and much more. Complete alignment with the latest ACSM's Guidelines ensures focused coverage of all essential topics. Evidenced-based coverage of over 35 conditions provides the most extensive coverage of diseases available for the course. A standard format in the conditions chapters (introduction, condition, pathology, clinical applications, case study, summary, and comorbidities case studies) makes specific information easy to find. A chapter on exercise genomics provides an overview of this new field and its potential clinical applications, while a separate chapter on electrocardiography provides a solid foundation for those who need to read and interpret EKGs. Special considerations beyond the conditions, such as comorbidities, the exercise environment, legal considerations, lifespan considerations, pharmacology, etc.) ensure complete coverage of clinical exercise physiology. In-text learning aids, including chapter-opening summaries and learning objectives, end-of-chapter review questions and case studies with questions for classroom discussion, help students prepare for practice.

Best Practice Protocols for Physique Assessment in Sport

Best Practice Protocols for Physique Assessment in Sport

Author: Patria A. Hume Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 11/02/2019

This book outlines best practice protocols for body composition analysis of high-performance athletes and provides guidance on the use of new technologies for anthropometry. While surface anthropometry has traditionally been used to assess body composition through the internationally recognised methodology of the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK), the recent commercialisation of devices, such as bioelectrical impedance technologies, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), ultrasound, 3D photometry and air-displacement plethysmography (Bod Pod), has led to the non-standardised adoption of new measurement techniques. In this textbook, leading researchers detail standardisation procedures for each technology: in terms of athlete preparation, test protocols, test reporting, equipment calibration and data interpretation. Each chapter covers a different tool: how it works, what it is used to measure, and what the issues are surrounding its validity, practicality and reliability. This book provides an essential reference for device technicians and sport practitioners, ensuring that high-performance athletes are afforded accurate and comparable body composition information to guide their training routines.

Sport and Physical Activity in the Heat

Sport and Physical Activity in the Heat

Author: Douglas J. Casa Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 04/02/2019

This unique book is the first of its kind to specifically explore the science, medicine, challenges and successful experiences of assisting those who must perform and thrive in hot conditions, with an eye toward maximizing both performance and safety. Beginning with both human and comparative physiology as it relates to coping with the heat, key concepts are subsequently elaborated, including heat acclimatization, work-to-rest ratios, hydration, sleep, the effects of altitude, and the use of drugs and supplements. The sections that follow discuss heat-related considerations in individual and team sports and other populations, monitoring techniques, and medical and legal issues. Athletes, warfighters and laborers are often forced to perform intense physical activity in the heat as a part of their jobs or lifestyle. The process of properly preparing for this challenge is multifaceted and often not fully understood or utilized. Sport and Physical Activity in the Heat is an excellent resource for team physicians, high-level coaches, serious athletes, athletic trainers, exercise scientists, strength and conditioning coaches, industrial hygienists, military commanders, or anyone involved in the process of maximizing performance and safety during exercise in the heat for the athlete, warfighter, or laborer.

Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine

Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine

Author: Mark Knoblauch Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/12/2018

Publication of a research article can be a defining moment in a researcher's career. However, the steps involved in turning an initial research question into a published article can be a long and arduous journey. To aid in this process, Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine was developed to serve as a comprehensive writing guide for research professionals and students who are looking to improve their academic writing skills. Dr. Mark Knoblauch and his 15 contributors developed Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine to focus around the area of manuscript development and presentation, while also including chapters that outline the foundational concepts of professional writing, developing a research grant, and the journal selection process. Each chapter is written by content experts who bring a wealth of experience not only from their own academic writing but also from having spent countless hours helping students become better, more effective writers. Many textbooks have been written that focus on development of the research manuscript itself, but what sets Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine apart is that it includes so much more to aid writers in their process. What you can find inside: * Examination of ancillary aspects associated with academic research such as poster and oral presentations * How to choose the most effective journal * How to deal with the stress of writing * How to write an effective grant Professional Writing in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine covers those topics and more, with the intent of providing a thorough, practical writing guide that spans the breadth of the research manuscript development, writing, and presentation process. Throughout the textbook, sample writings and cases relevant to the fields of kinesiology and sports medicine are used to provide the reader relevant, applicable examples to help improve their own writing.

Alpine Skiing Injuries

Alpine Skiing Injuries

Author: Herbert Schoenhuber Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/12/2018

This book provides detailed information on the different forms of injury that are associated with training for and participation in Alpine skiing, covering risk factors and epidemiology, incidence, injury patterns, and, above all, preventive strategies and current management approaches. Conditions addressed in individual chapters include concussion, traumatic dislocations due to high-energy trauma or inappropriate movements, overuse injuries resulting from dry-land training or skiing on snow, the fractures typically associated with present-day Alpine skiing accidents, and musculoskeletal disorders. The importance of a sound understanding of biomechanics and physiological systems for the design of suitable training protocols and trauma prevention is clearly explained, and in-depth information and guidance are provided on training and testing for elite skiers and return to sporting activity following injury. Among the other topics addressed in individual chapters are the relationship of changes in skiing equipment over recent decades to particular types of injury and the potential consequences of exposure to hypobaric hypoxia and other stressors at high altitude.
