An Athletic Trainers' Guide to Sports Nutrition by An Athletic Trainer's Guide to Sports Nutrition fills the void of a subject area that is underrepresented in current athletic trainer curriculums despite its importance in the field. Damon Amato has created a text that can be easily read and understood by health care professionals yet is in-depth enough to create a solid understanding of how the body works, and easy enough to then pass on the information to athletes to help them eat ideally based on their specific sport, goal, and situation. Giving a physiology background is necessary to lay the foundation for understanding why certain recommendations in the text are given; however, only the necessary details are included to focus on what is pertinent for athletic trainers to understand while advising athletes. Some topics covered inside include: Basics of human nutrition Disordered eating and eating disorders in athletes Supplements Eating optimally for injury recovery Nutrient timing Special situations An Athletic Trainer's Guide to Sports Nutrition gives athletic training clinicians and students the information and tools necessary to aid athletes in maintaining peak performance in nutrition, and fills the void left in the current athletic training curriculum.

Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach by For more than a decade, Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach has filled a void in athletic training education on the subject of emergency care. Now, this updated Third Edition continues to pave the way to prepare athletic training students beyond traditional first aid training as well as providing specific information on emergency situations in sports for emergency medical services (EMS) professionals. In this updated Third Edition, Dr. Robb S. Rehberg and Dr. Jeff G. Konin, along with their 13 contributors, have created a resource that can be used in athletic training education programs as a core text in a sports emergency care course; a supplemental text in several courses that address immediate care within an athletic training education curriculum; and it can be used by EMS educators in developing continuing education programs for prehospital providers. Some of the topics included in the Third Edition: Assessment of Sports Emergencies Cardiovascular Emergencies Management of Traumatic Brain Injury Fractures and Soft Tissue Injuries Managing Mental Health Emergencies Care of Athletes with Disabilities Emergencies in Sports for the Aging Athlete Regardless of discipline, it is important for all health care providers caring for ill or injured athletes to be knowledgeable and proficient in managing sports emergencies. This ability can only be achieved through preparation and practice, and Sports Emergency Care: A Team Approach, Third Edition continues to be a groundbreaking text that gives access to the essential resources health care providers need to address sports emergencies. This includes but is not limited to athletic trainers, emergency medical technicians and paramedics, and physicians.

After nearly 40 years as a professional sports athletic trainer, these emergency moments give me pause. Preparation is the key to successful outcomes in all emergencies." --Ronnie P.
