Sports Med right hand side syllabus testing

• ways to classify sports injuries  direct and indirect  soft and hard tissue  overuse • identify specific examples of injuries that reflect each of the classifications
• soft tissue injuries  tears, sprains, contusions  skin abrasions, lacerations, blisters  inflammatory response • manage soft tissue injuries:  RICER (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation, Referral)  immediate treatment of skin injuries
• hard tissue injuries  fractures  dislocation • manage hard tissue injuries  assessment for medical attention  immobilisation
• assessment of injuries  TOTAPS (Talk, Observe, Touch, Active and Passive movement, Skills test). • perform assessment procedures to determine the nature and extent of injury in simulated scenarios.
• children and young athletes  medical conditions (asthma, diabetes, epilepsy)  overuse injuries (stress fractures)  thermoregulation  appropriateness of resistance training • analyse the implications of each of these considerations for the ways young people engage in sport and how each is managed.
• adult and aged athletes  heart conditions  fractures/bone density  flexibility/joint mobility • explain the sports participation options available for aged people with medical conditions
• female athletes  eating disorders  iron deficiency  bone density  pregnancy. • assess the degree to which iron deficiency and bone density affect participation in sport.
• physical preparation  pre-screening  skill and technique  physical fitness  warm up, stretching and cool down • analyse different sports in order to determine priority preventative strategies and how adequate preparation may prevent injuries
• sports policy and the sports environment  rules of sports and activities  modified rules for children  matching of opponents, eg growth and development, skill level  use of protective equipment  safe grounds, equipment and facilities • critically analyse sports policies, rules and equipment to determine the degree to which they promote safe participation, eg heat rules, rugby union scrum rules
• environmental considerations  temperature regulation (convection, radiation, conduction, evaporation)  climatic conditions (temperature, humidity, wind, rain, altitude, pollution)  guidelines for fluid intake  acclimatisation • evaluate strategies an athlete could employ to support the body’s temperature regulation mechanisms • analyse the impact of climatic conditions on safe sports participation
• taping and bandaging  preventative taping  taping for isolation of injury  bandaging for immediate treatment of injury. • demonstrate taping and bandaging techniques, including taping the ankle, wrist and thumb
• rehabilitation procedures  progressive mobilisation  graduated exercise (stretching, conditioning, total body fitness)  training  use of heat and cold • examine and justify rehabilitation procedures used for a range of specific injuries, eg hamstring tear, shoulder dislocation
• return to play #1 • • research and evaluate skill and other physical tests that could be used to indicate readiness to return to play
• return to play #2 •• critically examine policies and procedures that regulate the timing of return to play, considering questions such as:
return to play #3  why aren’t such policies applied to all sports?  who should have ultimate responsibility for deciding if an athlete returns to competition?  should athletes be allowed to use painkillers in order to compete when injured?
