25th Anniversary Commentary

Team Physician or Athlete's Doctor?

Aaron Rubin, MD


Emergencies

Near-Drowning
Life-Saving Steps

When a near-drowning victim has had CPR and resumed breathing, your worries aren't over. You still need to think about such possibilities as cervical spine or other injuries, hypothermia, atelectasis, and infection.

William J. Reed, MD


Chronic Leg Pain
Putting the Diagnostic Pieces Together

When a patient has persistent leg pain, asking the right questions will take you a long way toward identifying the cause. Here is guidance on diagnosing and managing stress fractures, compartment syndrome, "shin splints," and strains and sprains.

Mark R. Hutchinson, MD; Scott Cahoon, MD; Thomas Atkins, MD


Managing Arthropod Bites and Stings

The bites and stings of insects, spiders, and scorpions usually cause only local pain, swelling, and itching. But when such an injury triggers a systemic reaction, the right treatment may save a life. The authors thoroughly discuss treatment and include identifying information about poisonous spiders and scorpions.

Robert L. Norris, MD


ECG Quiz

A 14-year-old girl collapsed with cardiac arrest in the middle of a sprint. She was resuscitated and hospitalized, but later that day she suffered a second cardiac arrest and died. From her electrocardiogram, see if you can identify the cause of her fatal arrhythmia.

G. Michael Vincent, MD
