REVIEW ARTICLES

Exercise-Associated Collapse
Postural Hypotension, or Something Deadlier?
An endurance athlete collapsing at the finish line is dramatic, but not always a medical emergency. A 1- to 2-minute exam with the athlete in a head-down position can narrow the diagnosis. An alert mental status indicates that the patient probably has postural hypotension rather than a more serious condition.
Dale B. Speedy, MBChB, MSc, MD; Timothy D. Noakes, MBChB, MD; Lucy-May Holtzhausen, MBChB

What Is Exercise?
A Primer for Practitioners
Exercise goals in a sports medicine practice range from better health to greater fitness. Reviewing the science behind measuring and prescribing exercise can help physicians more finely tune this powerful tool.
Howard G. Knuttgen, PhD


ORIGINAL RESEARCH

Preparticipation Screening of Athletic Officials
SEC Football Referees at Risk
Researchers examined physiologic stress and health parameters in 102 sports officials to determine the outcomes of a preseason medical exam. They found that more graded exercise testing was needed and that rates of obesity warrant detailed screening for coronary heart disease risk factors.
John L. Turner, Jr, MD; Rod Walters, ATC, DA; Mark J. Leski, MD; Robert M. Saywell, Jr, PhD, MPH; J. Scott Wooldridge, MHA
