Assessment of Nonorthopedic Sports Injuries: A Sideline Reference Manual is a concise and user-friendly guide that will benefit both the clinician and the student. This handy manual will help the clinician evaluate and treat nonorthopedic injuries on the sidelines at sporting events and can also be used as a study guide for students in the classroom. This well-organized reference guide contains algorithms, tables, and illustrations along with chapters that include an introduction and brief anatomy review, where applicable. The algorithms are designed to rule out potentially catastrophic injuries, such as cervical spine and head injuries. The algorithms will then guide the clinician through an evaluation specific to the injury, so that a differentiation can be made between the signs and symptoms indicative of serious conditions and those that are relatively benign. Assessment of Nonorthopedic Sports Injuries: A Sideline Reference Manual is a valuable book that will easily fit into a medical bag and have use as a crossover manual from the classroom to the playing field.Fink ME.
