In this lecture:
Sports-related internal injuries can be some of the most dangerous and life threatening injuries encountered by athletic trainers. At the end of this lecture, participants will be able to recognize and describe these injuries. We will review the anatomy, signs, and common symptoms. Athletic trainers will be able to determine appropriate management of internal injuries, and implement special return to play considerations for suspected internal injuries. We will also classify commonly seen injuries to the abdominal cavity, specifically issues related to liver, renal, and splenic injuries.

In this lecture:
Blunt force trauma resulting from athletic participation presents a number of inherent risks to the participant, while simultaneously presenting the need for requisite knowledge and understanding of pathophysiology in the practicing clinician. Participants will learn to fully evaluate patients with mechanisms of injury suggestive of possible internal injury, while applying judicial consideration to any constellation of signs and symptoms. Subsequently, athletic trainers will recognize the need for emergency medical treatment in the event of suspected internal injury, especially splenic laceration, in spite of conflicting signs and symptoms.
