CASE REPORT

Abnormal Hand Sensations After a Football Tackle
When patients who play contact sports present with abnormal sensations in the extremities, physicians worry because the symptoms suggest an underlying cervical disorder. In this case involving a high school football player, physicians acted quickly to connect the player's atypical hand symptoms to significant spinal stenosis.

REVIEW ARTICLES

Airway Management for the Sports Physician
Part 1: Basic Techniques
In sports, airway emergencies can arise from many medical or traumatic events. A simple algorithmic approach focuses on three questions that guide the management approach: Are airway patency and movement present, are ventilations adequate, and, if not, can the patient be ventilated? The article reviews the indications for and usage of basic airway devices and sets the groundwork for more advanced techniques, which will be discussed in a subsequent issue.
Robert L. Norris, MD; Jeffery Peterson, MD

Immunizations
Recommendations and Resources for Active Patients
As sports seasons get underway and infectious illness season draws near, physicians have opportunities to shore up immunization status in young people—one of the most difficult groups to reach. Though there are no formal immunization recommendations for athletes, physicians often need specific information about vaccination timing and activity and the effects of exercise and certain sports situations on immune status.
