Many people are more active today than they were many years ago. Injury prevention and diagnosis plays a big role in today’s society. Preventing an injury is important for many athletes all over the world, and for people that are physically active. Preventing injuries can benefit an athlete in the long run. Athletic trainers help athletes and physically active people stay healthy for what they do on a daily basis.
Immediate care provided by an Athletic Trainer can reduce the onset of short-term and long-term side effects which can effect one's quality of life. In more serious cases such as concussions or spinal injuries among other conditions an Athletic Trainer can be the difference between life or death. Since Athletic Trainers are not doctors, we are only allowed to offer the basic medical care in an emergency situation. But Athletic Trainers can cut finical costs by appropriately assessing injuries and determining the proper referral to eliminate unnecessary Emergency Room and physicians visits which can be
Reasons why I should not fall asleep on duty. If I was to get called to a traffic accident or a domestic dispute I would not be able to respond because I would be asleep. Therefore I would not be able to complete my duties as a military police officer. Being a military police officer I should up hold the standards and the law appointed to me by the United States army. If I was asleep during an active shooter event that may take place at a bank or maybe the commissary, possibly even the PX in Hainerburg housing I would not be able to respond accordingly do to my current state. Being a military police officer means that I will be discipline physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my officer tasks and duties. For instance if
Being a college athlete myself I understand the grind of what an athlete has to go through. Most athletes start of the day with weight lifting in the morning or some type of conditioning, then
Alarm fatigue is a growing national problem within the health care industry that links medical technology as a serious hazard that poses a significant threat to patient safety within hospitals across the country. Alarm fatigue occurs when nurses encounter an overwhelming amount of alarms thus becoming desensitized to the firing alarms. Alarm desensitization is a multifaceted issue that is related to the number of alarming medical devices, a high false alarm rate, and the lack of alarm standardization in hospitals today (Cvach, 2012). Desensitization can lead to delayed response times, alarms silenced or turned off, or alarms adjusted to unsafe limits, which can create a dangerous situation for the patient. Alarm fatigue
That is a proven fact. Athletes need more sleep to excel in sports. They can’t do that if they are half asleep. If Patrick Kane only got 3 hours of sleep before a game, he definitely wouldn’t perform as well, and he would probably fall asleep on the ice. He also would have a good chance of getting injured. Athletes who don’t get enough sleep have a way higher chance of getting injured than those who get the recommended sleep time. So therefore having middle school start time be as early as they are hurts
So many athletes get hurt dealing with broken bones ,tearing something etc .According to careers in sports medicine “If you are considering a career as a trainer,you should be able to keep a cool head in emergencies, stay calm at the sight of blood or broken bones,and enjoy science courses.” Trainers also need to have emergency plans already together because, they never know what could happen during a game or practice. Emergency plans should include what to do if an athlete gets hurt, make sure the trainer knows the location to where they are so the EMS can get to where they are and, also what gate EMS would need to go thru if they have to drive on the field to get a player.Trainers also have to deal with tapping the ankles before games sometimes they might have to tape them in the hotel room they're staying in, because they might not have time before the game to get all the players done.Trainers might spend weeks on the road with their team so they might miss out on a lot of family time.
Why is this a problem? Our bodies need to rest, our bodies also love routine, set schedule.
Athletes who are sleep deprived report slower reaction times that could lead to injuries so if schools started later, athletes should be at the top of their game every night. Student athletes have many responsibilities throughout their day including maintaining their good grades, behaving well in school, and putting their best effort out during the practices and games. If the star basketball player struggles to get good sleep every night, then has a hard time at school that day, will this player come out at the game that night with his full focus on the game? Probably not. Athletes more than anyone need those 9 hours of sleep or it could potentially kill them. A study was conducted in 2011 on a Stanford basketball team investigating the effects of sleep extension on specific measures of athletic performance, as well as reaction time and daytime sleepiness. It is well known that sleep that sleep deprivation and sleep disturbance can impair mental and physical function, immune response and other restorative processes important for athletes (
“The typical teenager requires between 8.5-9 hours of sleep per night, so even a teen with good sleep habits generally sleep deprived” (Canapari pg.1). Most of high school students have outside activities and barely has time to study their homework. Athletes usually have practice to everyday and goes home later than regular students and have less time to get all the information of their homework. Practices leaves the athletes exhausted and needs to relax but can’t because all the homework they have and stress how much time they have to finish it
According to the Center for Disease Control report, “Insufficient sleep in teens is associated with obesity, migraines, and immune system disruption .” (2) Therefore, later start times will improve student health. Coaches would even benefit from the later start times because their players will be healthier, more alert and will not be as tired when they get to practice after school. More students will excel at extracurricular athletic activities.
Students that do not sleep well at night will struggle to maintain grades and a healthy lifestyle. Students who sleep less usually have lower grades than a student that gets enough rest. Student will feel pressured to sacrifice sleep to be in top shape for their team so they can earn the money given to them. Students who do this will wrestle with lowering grades and the inability to think as efficiently. According to ncaa.org, their blog states that colleges graduate 18 percent fewer college athletes than regular students. The main cause of this is being overworked to the point of exhaustion or to where they have to pick academics to focus on or their sport. Also according to ncaa.org In 2004 only 73 percent of college athletes graduated
Sleep is a very important key for an athlete to perform at their highest level. Which would give us an additional reason for student athletes to be paid an allowance. A sleep deprived athlete could prove to be useless during a hard workout or in their game/meet. Studies from Dr. Eve Van Cauter show that a hormone called cortisol is higher when a person is sleep deprived. This leads to memory impairment, stress, and impaired recovery time for athletes (AboutHealth). Making it tough for an athlete to balance work, school and their sport.
