Sample text

Team physicians must be open and responsive to proven changes that will benefit and protect their athletes, but they cannot afford to simply follow the latest fad. Judgment is also required when treating injuries to ensure that treatment decisions made for professional athletes are not automatically translated into other echelons of sport. Ulnar collateral surgery may be absolutely indicated in a 34-year-old major league pitcher. Does that make it right for a 16-year-old high school pitcher? Every would-be team physician must research the medical liability risk and coverage associated with the position.

A narrow CI is good. If, when evaluating relative risk, the CI crosses 1, there is no real difference between groups. Confounding: A confounding variable (confounder) is an extraneous variable that correlates (positively or negatively) with both the dependent variable and the independent variable. Scientific studies therefore need to account for these variables either through controls or through statistical means; otherwise, an erroneous conclusion can be made that the dependent variables are in a causal relationship with the independent variable.

The dedicated team physician uses his or her observations and recorded injury data to prevent future injuries on his or her teams. Observing a rise in concussions will prompt a review of the team’s helmets or the tackling technique. An increase in acromioclavicular separations may trigger an inspection of shoulder pads. An outbreak of rashes, abscesses, or other skin conditions should prompt a review of sanitation, equipment, and laundry procedures. The astute team physician ensures that injury and outcome data are gathered, stored, and shared using methods that are Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant.
