Product Description:

Finally, there are standard guidelines for managing suspected spine injuries on the field and avoiding secondary injury. The Spine Injury Management Education Kitis the ultimate tool for bringing athletic trainers and emergency professionals up to speed on treatment techniques.

This comprehensive training kit builds on the latest information for treating spine-injured athletes and helps you bring to life step-by-step strategies for ideal care of injured athletes, whether they be involved in football, lacrosse, soccer, gymnastics, or a variety of other sports.

The contents of the kit are based on the 2001 landmark report “Prehospital Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete: A Document From the Inter-Association Task Force for Appropriate Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete.” Led by the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA), the task force consists of representatives from more than 30 emergency medical associations and sports medicine organizations across the country. In this report, the group presents a uniform protocol for the appropriate management of suspected spine injuries. Most important, it provides guidelines for helping professionals avoid improper care that could result in secondary injuries. These sound guidelines are endorsed by representatives of various health care specialties, including the NATA and emergency medical service organizations.

The Spine Injury Management Education Kit brings together a video, CD-ROM, a palm card and a folded poster for a ready-to-use training system that will greatly enhance your effectiveness in treating potential spine injuries.

With this valuable visual record, you can drive home the vital steps in the complete treatment of athletes with spine injuries. Dynamic and concise, this video removes any question about how to perform an initial assessment, remove athletic equipment, immobilize and transport injured athletes, provide advanced care for suspected catastrophic spine injury, and prevent spine injuries.

This comprehensive education package provides a variety of exciting options for teaching the treatment of the spine-injured athlete. With a click of a button, you can access them all:

-An instructor guide, test bank, and PowerPoint presentation skillfully combine text and graphics to make spine injury management instruction more exciting and student evaluation more effective.

-Competency worksheets help students track the critical skills they've learned and retained.

-A student booklet puts a handy synopsis of the recommendations for care of the spine-injured athlete at students' fingertips.

-A complete copy of “Prehospital Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete: A Document From the Inter-Association Task Force for Appropriate Care of the Spine-Injured Athlete” is a document that every on-the-field health care professional should have.
Palm Card
This laminated, quick-reference card on the care of the athlete and equipment removal is an effective way to review critical issues before taking action. Purchase enough copies so that every student, athletic trainer, and local emergency care professional can carry one. The kit includes one palm card, but additional cards can be purchased in packages of 10.

This full-color, visual reminder of the appropriate care of spine-injured athletes should be hung prominently in every athletic training room or EMS facility. You may purchase additional posters separately.

There's more than one approach to training students in the correct procedures for proper start-to-finish management and care of spine-injured athletes. This comprehensive education package broadens your options, builds your teaching confidence, and helps you carry out your vital role of teaching others to care for, supervise, remove protective athletic equipment from, and transport the injured athlete.
