That’s what makes the groundbreaking Preventing Sudden Death in Sport and Physical Activity, Second Edition by Douglas J. Casa and Rebecca L. Stearns so essential. In a recent 5-star review, Ernest Eugene, MS, BS, from Virginia Tech, writing for Doody’s Review Service raves that,
“The new edition of this important book reflects the updates in this field as a result of the research since the previous edition. I will use in my daily practice.”
