Event Medicine provides an overview of several of the key aspects involved in providing sports medicine services to a mass sporting event. The video discusses the fact that anyone could put on such an event, provided they had support of their leadership and their colleagues. The video also points out the factors that need to be considered when conducting an event, as well as what can be done to plan to help ensure that all goes as intended at the event. In addition, the DVD reviews how to properly manage chest and abdominal trauma in athletes when it occurs at such events. Furthermore, the video explains that untoward circumstances may occur at such events, regardless of how much effort has been undertaken to prevent them. In that regard, the DVD explores what to do if an athlete dies or when an athlete suffers a spine injury.
