Ultrasound Identifies First Rib Stress Fractures: A Case Series in Division I Athletes
J Athl Train. 2022 May 27. doi: 10.4085/1062-6050-0375.21. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTIsolated first rib stress fractures in athletes are thought to be rare. In this case series, three Division I athletes developed isolated first rib stress fractures over the span of one year, revealing that these may occur more often than previously understood. These fractures can be easily missed because of low incidence, lack of clinical suspicion, and vague presentation. Further, radiographs can fail to reveal such fractures. To our knowledge, this is the largest case series of athletes with first rib stress fractures presenting wit...

Assessments Used by Athletic Trainers to Decide Return-to-Activity Readiness in Patients
CONCLUSIONS: Before approving return-to-activity for patients with ankle sprains, some recommended outcomes and assessment methods are not evaluated by ATs. Practice in non-traditional settings, more advanced degrees, more clinical experience, and familiarity with expert-consensus guidelines appear to facilitate use of ROASTs.PMID:35622952 | DOI:10.4085/1062-6050-0037.22 (Source: J Athl Train)

Comparing the Primary Concerns of Injured Collegiate-Athletes to the Content of Patient-Reported Outcome Measures
CONCLUSIONS: The presence of significant content differences supports clinician perceived barriers regarding relevance of established PROMs. However, the IKDC was observed to be a relevant and efficient PROM for evaluating the primary concerns of collegiate-athletes experiencing lower extremity injury. Clinicians should consider utilizing patient-generated measures to support coverage of patient-specific concerns in care.PMID:35622954 | DOI:10.4085/1062-6050-0516.21 (Source: J Athl Train)

Prospective Implications of Insufficient Sleep for Athletes
CONCLUSIONS: The combination of insufficient sleep and worse attention/processing speed performance at baseline may increase risk of sustaining an SRC in the future.PMID:35622958 | DOI:10.4085/1062-6050-0078.22 (Source: J Athl Train)

Post-Operative Acute Pulmonary Edema and Heart Failure in Previously Healthy Collegiate Athlete: A Case Report
The objective of this paper is to present the case of a healthy, nineteen-year-old female collegiate soccer player who presented with acute pulmonary edema and acute heart failure in recovery status post hip labrum arthroscopic surgery. The patient's initial diagnosis, of negative pressure pulmonary edema in direct relation to extubation, was questioned when the patient became hemodynamically unstable. After receiving the results of a cardiac biopsy, the final diagnosis was determined to be acute pulmonary edema and heart failure secondary to viral myocarditis. The patient was treated and discharged ten days after admissio...

A Descriptive Analysis of Patient Outcomes and Experiences at a Student Run Athletic Training Clinic
CONCLUSION: Patients experience clinically significant improvements in pain, function, disablement, and quality of life when receiving care form athletic training students at an student-run clinic. Patients also report a high level of satisfaction with the care provided and a positive overall experience with an athletic training student-run clinic.PMID:35622949 | DOI:10.4085/1062-6050-0051.22 (Source: J Athl Train)

Return to Competition Progression after Exertional Heat Stroke in an Adolescent Runner: A Case Report
J Athl Train. 2022 May 27. doi: 10.4085/1062-6050-0583.21. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTA 14-year-old runner indigenous to the tropics, collapsed during his first 10 km race in a hot/humid climate. Dizziness, stumbling, and loss of consciousness were symptoms of exertional heat stroke (EHS). Two days post-collapse blood tests revealed elevated hepatic transaminases consistent with hepatic injury. We discuss the return to competition progression which included a gradual increase in exercise duration, initially in cool and then in a tropical climate, and two field-based (WBGT> 29.0°C) running evaluations that simulated ...
