NATA
David Berry, PhD, AT, ATC, ATRIC, will be presenting "If Direct Pressure Fails: Evidence for the Use Tourniquets to Control External Bleeding in the Pre-Hospital Setting," at 3:45 p.m. CT on Nov. 6. Direct pressure is an effective means for controlling external bleeding. Evidence suggests that tourniquets are however a practical options when direct pressure fails or is impossible to perform. The Red Cross and National Registry of EMT have endorsed the use tourniquets in the prehospital setting as a method to control severe bleeding. The athletic training educational competencies specifically mention tourniquets to control bleeding. As prehospital care providers, ATs should be offered the opportunity to be presented with the science and then be allowed to make their own informed decisions as to the values of such skills.

Preventing Staph Infections in Student Sports
UPI
Participation in U.S. school athletics should begin with personal hygiene program to prevent staph infections and more serious germs, a U.S. expert says. Dr. Robert Dimeff, medical director of sports medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, said football players and wrestlers should be particularly wary because studies by the Texas Department of State Health Services found the methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA, infection rate among Texas football players was 16 times the national average.

In Michigan, Sidelines Are Offices Of Neurologists
The New York Times
Most neurologists conduct concussion assessments in the safe, beige-walled, soft-elevator-music confines of a medical office. Their patients are not usually fired up on adrenaline, a 100-piece band is not blaring in the background, and tens of thousands of very partisan fans are not standing and screaming during the exam. But that is the juiced-up environment surrounding the neurologists Jeff Kutcher of Michigan and David Kaufman of Michigan State when they make the football sidelines their avant-garde offices on Saturdays.

Returning from Concussion is a Learning Process
Northwest Times
After a concussion, athlete, coach, and parents are naturally concerned with how soon a return to play is possible. Perhaps, however, that concern is a bit misplaced because the vast majority of athletes who suffer a mild traumatic brain injury are students first. Because of the heightened concern surrounding concussion, more and more athletic programs at the collegiate and high school levels have become well-versed in the most up-to-date protocols regarding the management of a safe resumption of participation.
