The big concern for all Physicians, even in lower profile sporting events, is that they will encounter sport emergencies. The two primary concerns is that there will be mis-management of:
a life-threatening situation
a limb-threatening situation
In order to allay these anxieties and fears, people attend courses from time to time. However, there is no easily accessible manual or guide that can be scanned before the game, or even during the emergency.What is special about this book is that it is a manual with clear instructions on what to do in a given sports emergency. There are clear instructions on what to do, and, just as importantly, what not to do. Each chapter has a diagrammatic or photographic series of steps that must be taken, accompanied by clear instructions.
