In past decades the number of exercising individuals and the area of sports medicine have grown considerably.
Sports medicine has developed both in terms of its clinical importance with appropriate diagnosis and adequate rehabilitation
following injury as well as its potential role in the promotion of health and prevention of life-style diseases
in individuals of all ages.
Methods for analysing trauma injury
data with missing values, collected at a UK
hospital, are reported. One measure of injury
severity, the Glasgow coma score, which is
known to be associated with patient death, is
missing for 12% of patients in the dataset. In
order to include these 12% of patients in the
analysis, three different data imputation
techniques are used to estimate the missing
Three distinct sequential cellular responses characterise the reaction of the adult
spinal cord and brain to injury. An acute

during which macrophages clear necrotic debris, glial cell

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has
requested that the National Academies, through the National Research
Council (NRC) and the Institute of Medicine (IOM), conduct a series of
reviews of its research portfolio. The charge is discussed in detail in a subsequent
section, but in general it is to evaluate the relevance and impact of a NIOSH research
program and to provide recommendations for future research. This report
contains a review and evaluation of the NIOSH Traumatic Injury (TI) Research
Spinal cord trauma is potentially the most devastating consequence of injury to the spine. This well-established, practical guide provides a detailed overview from the scene of the accident to rehabilitation and discharge from hospital care. This latest edition has been substantially rewritten to include the most recent developments in practical management of patients with potential spine injury and risk-minimisation techniques. There is also a new chapter on spinal cord injury in developing countries....
This book describes the evidence behind the application of Therapeutic Hypothermia on patients with injury to the brain and spinal cord, that includes ischemia reperfusion after cardiac arrest or asphyxiation, traumatic brain injury, acute ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, refractory intracranial hypertension, cerebral edema in acute liver failure, subarachnoid hemorrhage, as well as spinal cord injury.
Coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide,
and 3.8 million men and 3.4 million women die of the disease each
year. After an acute myocardial infarction, early and successful myocardial
reperfusion with the use of thrombolytic therapy or primary percutaneous coronary
intervention (PCI) is the most effective strategy for reducing the size of a myocardial
infarct and improving the clinical outcome. The process of restoring blood
flow to the ischemic myocardium, however, can induce injury.
Athletic activities and recreational exercises are the phenomena of modern civilized societies. The
Citius, altius, fortius
may translate better today as “even faster, even higher, even
stronger.” If we consider that many sport participants are professionally involved and that sport has
become big business and top entertainment in our society, we can understand how sport can place
demands on an athlete. At the same time, during the last few decades, recreational exercise has
become most people’s daily lifestyle.
In summarizing current insights and controversies over concussions in athletics, this book makes the vital point that symptom resolution does not necessarily mean injury resolution. Research shows that dysfunctional pathways continue for extended periods even after a minor concussion. Until the consequences of short-term perturbations and long-term residual brain dysfunctions are better understood, concussions must be treated with respect and given a higher priority for continued research activity....
The investigation of felonious injuries and criminal homicides can be the most important, yet difficult responsibility assigned to the police investigator. After studying this chapter you will be able to: Describe the four motivational models for classification of homicide, identify the investigator's responsibilities when responding to the scene o suspected homicide or assault, comprehend the importance of personal identification of a victim in a homicide investigation,...
After more than a quarter century as a primary care educator, I am
convinced that our graduates enter practice inadequately trained in
the diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal problems and
injuries. One reason for this perceived deficiency is the relatively
short duration of primary care training—typically three years for
family medicine, general internal medicine, and general pediatrics.
During this time, there are just not enough months to teach all a clinician
needs to know about diseases and trauma involving the musculoskeletal
Head injury refers to trauma of the head. This may or may not include injury to the brain. However, the terms traumatic brain injury and head injury are often used interchangeably in medical literature.The incidence (number of new cases) of head injury is 300 of every 100,000 per year (0.3% of the population), with a mortality rate of 25 per 100,000 in North America and 9 per 100,000 in Britain. Head trauma is a common cause of childhood hospitalization.

Asia Injury Prevention Foundation is a non-profit enterprise with the mission to provide life-saving traffic safety knowledge and skills to the developing world with the goal of preventing road traffic fatalities and injuries.
(BQ) Sports Injury Management: Volume I is a collection of articles written by Back2Sports’ specialist physiotherapists. The benefits of sports is tremendous and should not be hampered by injuries that could have been prevented . If not prevented then better managed to enable a quick return to sports. Education plays an important role in managing this potential injuries.
(BQ) This text provides a comprehensive, practical, evidence–based guide to the field. It covers each stage of the rehabilitation process from initial assessment, diagnosis and treatment, to return to pre–injury fitness and injury prevention. Presenting a holistic approach, this text also addresses the nutritional and psychological aspects of the rehabilitation process for the amateur sports enthusiast as well as elite athletes.
(BQ) Divided into five parts, Parts I, II and III cover screening and assessment, the pathophysiology of sports injuries and healing and the various stages of training during the rehabilitation process. Part IV covers effective clinical decision making, and Part V covers joint specific injuries and pathologies in the shoulder, elbow wrist and hand, groin and knee.
