Sports medicine take home points l.jpg

SPORTS MEDICINE: TAKE HOME POINTS

Five North Carolina High School Athletes died in games or practice during 2008-2009 school year

2 of these were head injuries

2 were heart problems

1 final diagnosis/autopsy report has not been released

The following slides provide key points that may help you, as coaches, prevent further deaths


Sports medicine concussions l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: CONCUSSIONS

  • A concussion is a traumatic injury to the brain and presents with a wide variety of signs and symptoms

    • Headache

    • Confusion

    • Amnesia (not remembering events before or after the injury)

    • Vision changes

    • Loss of consciousness

    • Dizziness

    • Irritability/emotional changes (inappropriate or atypical crying, laughing, etc)

    • Nausea/vomiting

    • Fatigue/feeling sluggish/slow/’foggy’

    • Having “bell rung’

    • Excessive fatigue/drowsiness

  • ANY sign/symptom after a blow to the head is a concussion until proven otherwise


Sports medicine concussion l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: CONCUSSION

  • A high school athlete should NEVER return to play on the day they suffer a concussion

    • Returning an athlete to play before complete resolution of symptoms can lead to recurrent concussion, prolonged post-concussion symptoms, OR even ‘Second Impact Syndrome’ (which is often fatal)

  • NEW NHSCAA Rule : An athlete with suspected concussion cannot return to play until he/she is cleared by a licensed medical physician

    • Managing concussions is difficult even for well-trained and experienced medical providers. Coaches, you do not want this responsibility (or liability).


Sports medicine concussions34 l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: CONCUSSIONS

Take home point: At the end of the day, it’s not an athlete’s knee, ankle, or elbow… it’s his or her brain and you cannot get this one wrong.

  • “WHEN IN DOUBT, SIT THEM OUT.”


Sports medecine concussions l.jpg
SPORTS MEDECINE: CONCUSSIONS

  • A new online coach education course – “Concussion in Sports – What You Need to Know “ is now available from the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) at www.nfhslearn.com.

  • The course provides a guide to understanding, recognizing, and properly managing concussion in high school sports. The course is FREE, but you must register at www.nfhslearn.com.

  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has endorsed the course and has provided many useful resources.


Sports medicine neck injuries l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: NECK INJURIES

  • Cervical spine injuries are typically caused by contact with a forward flexed neck

    • ‘spearing’ position

  • Any numbness/tingling in BOTH arms is suspicious for a cervical spine injury

    • a ‘stinger’ never causes burning in both arms

      Take Home Point: Any suspected cervical spine injury should be immobilized and evaluated by medical personnel


Sports medicine heart issues l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: HEART ISSUES

  • Sudden cardiac death occurs in young athletes for a variety of reasons:

    • Most are due to genetic abnormalities of heart rhythms or heart anatomy

    • Drugs can trigger cardiac arrest (cocaine, stimulants, anabolic steroids, and ephedrine are common culprits)

    • Heat stroke can lead to cardiac arrest

    • Viral illnesses can cause ‘myocarditis’ (infection of the heart muscle) which can cause sudden cardiac arrest

    • Sickle cell trait makes athletes more likely to have sudden cardiac arrest (more common in African-Americans)


Sports medicine heart issues38 l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: HEART ISSUES

There are red flags which can tip us off to undiagnosed heart problems

  • Chest pain with exertion

  • Passing out/fainting from exertion – this is not normal or due to being ‘out of shape’

  • Family history of a sudden cardiac death or unexplained death before age 50

    Take home point: Any athlete who passes out or has chest pain with exertion needs a medical evaluation


Sports medicine respiratory issues asthma l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE:RESPIRATORY ISSUES/ASTHMA

  • Asthma attacks remain a leading cause of death among young people

  • Be aware of common asthma triggers:

    • Respiratory infections

    • Both extreme heat/humidity and cold/dry

    • Pollen & other allergens

      Take home point: Know who your asthmatic athletes are & make sure they have accessible inhalers


Sports medicine heat illness l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: HEAT ILLNESS

  • Death from heat illness is preventable

  • Hydration is only one part of the solution

  • Know who is at increased risk

    • Obese, out of shape athletes

    • Athletes with fever or recent stomach or respiratory infections

    • Athletes with sickle cell trait

    • Athletes with history of prior heat illness

    • Athletes on illicit drugs, ADD meds, or supplements w/ stimulants


Sports medicine heat illness41 l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: HEAT ILLNESS

  • Prevention is key

  • Be aware of heat index (see handbook)

    • General Rule for high risk

      • 70 to 80 F with high humidity (> 70%)

      • 80 to 90 F with moderate humidity

      • 90 F with low humidity (< 30%)

  • Practice at cooler times when feasible (mornings, evenings)


Sports medicine heat illness42 l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: HEAT ILLNESS

  • Allow athletes/teams to acclimate and become accustomed to heat over time

  • Allow regular breaks for cooling and hydration

  • Monitor body weight pre/post practice

  • Recognize early and initiate cooling immediately

    • confusion, collapse, nausea/vomiting


Sports medicine skin infections l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: SKIN INFECTIONS

  • Skin infections are common in contact sports

  • Most skin infections are relatively minor and self-limited

  • Resistant staph infections (MRSA) have become quite common and can be severe

  • Skin infections are spread by skin-to-skin contact, sharing pads/equipment/work-out gear, dirty equipment

  • Any boil or abscess needs medical evaluation


Sports medicine skin infections44 l.jpg
SPORTS MEDICINE: SKIN INFECTIONS

Take home point: the vast majority of skin infections can be prevented by good hygiene

  • Shower right after every practice & game

  • Do not share equipment, pads, work-out clothes, towels, etc

  • Wash hands frequently with soap/water or anti-bacterial towels/gels

  • Wash equipment, mats, clothes, towels, etc regularly
