Airway Management for the Sports Physician
Part 2: Advanced Techniques
Though many airway emergencies in sports can be managed using a systematic approach and basic airway equipment, sometimes situations such as direct airway trauma or deep unconsciousness require more advanced techniques. This article, the second in a series, details how to prepare for and place endotracheal tubes and surgical airways.

Acromioclavicular Joint Injuries
Identifying and Treating 'Separated Shoulder' and Other Conditions
Injuries of the acromioclavicular (AC) joint are fairly easy to diagnose based on trauma and activity patterns and on radiographic findings. AC separations are common, as are distal clavicle fractures, osteoarthritis, or osteolysis. The key focus is to determine injury severity, which will foretell whether the patient will respond to conservative measures such as ice, support, pain medication, and activity restriction.

Isolated Jejunal Rupture After Blunt Trauma
Though abdominal trauma is inherent to many high-impact sports, hollow viscus injury (HVI) is rare. In this case, a professional hockey player who had sustained blunt lower-abdominal trauma after a check exhibited worsening symptoms that were caused by an isolated jejunal rupture. When an active patient takes an abdominal blow, close monitoring and the use of serial exams can help physicians more quickly diagnose HVI.
