Summary

Written specifically for athletic trainers, the updated second edition of ''Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers: Recognizing Systemic Disease'' emphasizes practical knowledge; development of clinical skills, including evaluation and treatment; and development of clinical decision-making abilities. Inside ''Clinical Pathology for Athletic Trainers, Second Edition,'' you will find an expanded discussion of the pathophysiology associated with general medical conditions, as well as case studies which facilitate the student's ability to formulate a differential diagnosis and make clinical decisions. Dr. Daniel P. O'Connor and Dr. A. Louise Fincher have incorporated all of the didactic and psychomotor competencies listed within the General Medical Conditions and Pathology of Injuries and Illness domains from the ''Fourth Edition'' of the ''NATA Educational Competencies'' into this unique text. Competencies that are addressed throughout the text are conveniently listed at the beginning of each chapter in which they are referenced. Individual lab activities are included within some chapters to aid in the development of the psychomotor skills related to evaluating general medical illnesses. Instructors will enjoy new ancillary materials such as test bank questions and PowerPoint slides.
