Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers focuses on clinical signs and symptoms of pathology, which will allow the practicing athletic trainer to recognize systemic illnesses and injuries. This necessary reference text will introduce the knowledge and skills needed to recognize and differentiate signs and symptoms produced by systemic disease. Organized by the major body systems, a variety of topics are covered, including diseases of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, neurological, psychological, and immunological. An added bonus is the inclusion of several laboratory activities that outline physical examination techniques relevant to non-musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses.
This innovative reference text also contains a chapter that synthesizes knowledge into practice by providing evaluation and management algorithms that are organized by major symptoms, such as chest and abdominal pain.
