Abstract: In August 2015, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association released an Executive Summary outlining recommendations for treatment of spine-injured athletes. Differences exist between the recommendations contained in the Executive Summary and the NATA Position Statement: Acute management of the cervical spine-injured athlete (2009). That position statement along with other consensus statements contained recommendations which emphasized minimizing head and cervical spine motion prior to, during, and following transport of the injured athlete. Whereas, the current Executive Summary focuses on several areas in addition to the prevention of cervical spine movement with two of these being airway and chest access. These differences will be outlined in the presentation along with recommendations ensuring the most qualified personnel are properly removing the equipment and managing the injury.
1) Participants will recognize the key differences between the NATA position statement (2009) and the NATA Executive Summary statement (2015) related to treating patients with suspected cervical spine injuries.
2) Participants will summarize rationale for determining the appropriateness of removing protective equipment prior to transport.
3) Participants will demonstrate proper technique for removing protective equipment in patients with suspected head or cervical spine injuries.
