3 Things ATs Need to Know About Pneumothorax

entering ER
entering ERDuring our last Sports Emergency Care White Paper Session, session leader Peter Bonadonna, EMT-P provided a presentation on pneumothorax that received exceptional reviews.  Here, session moderator Mike Cendoma, MS, ATC provides three take-home points from the presentation that all athletic trainers should know:

  1. The most common cause of pneumothorax in athletics is blunt-force trauma, resulting in closed pneumothorax.  Therefore, the risk of a secondary life-threatening tension pneumothorax in athletes is considerable.
  2. Athletic trainers should have a low transport threshold for athletes that present with shortness of breath or rapid shallow breathing following blunt-force trauma.
  3. When an athlete presents with signs and symptoms of pneumothorax, athletic trainers should request emergency transport via ALS due to the significant risk of tension pneumothorax.
Here is what your colleagues are saying about Sports Medicine Concepts’ FREE Sports Emergency Care White Paper Sessions:
  • “I Love Your White Paper CE Sessions!”

3 Things ATs Need To Know About Hypoglycemia

hockey1During our last Sports Emergency Care White Paper Session, session leader Mike Cendoma, MS, ATC reviewed practical application of the NATA Position Statement on Management of the Athlete With Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus.  Here are three critical components of the discussion that all athletic trainers should consider when developing protocols:
  1. Emergency action plans should include a hypoglycemic protocol that is based on individual care plans.  Individual care plans should include exclusion criteria and insulin adjustments developed by a medical team.
  2. When blood glucose concentration is < 100mg/dL (5.5mmol/L) before exercise athletes should ingest about 30g of carbohydrates.  This can be accomplished by ingestion of:
    • 1/2 peanut butter sandwich (1 slice whole wheat bread + 1 tbls peanut butter) + 1 c of milk, or
    • 6oz light yogurt + 3/4 c berries, or
    • 1 english muffin + 1 tsp low-fat tub margarine.
  3. Visit Glucagon On the Go to download free apps to help practice injection techniques and manage Glucagon Kits.
