    Preventing Sudden Death in Sport and Physical Activity has received 5-stars from Doody’s Review Service!

    Reviewer Jason S. McVeigh, MS,PT, SCS, ATC, LAT from University of Tennessee at Knoxville writes: "While no single book can ever prepare clinicians for every situation they will face in their career, this one provides a critical starting point for its readers. Dr. Casa and his colleagues do an extraordinary job...

    By addressing each topic individually, and having a subject matter expert write each chapter, this book provides a greater in-depth examination of the practical application of this information. Not only will this book educate readers on current concepts and techniques, it also will serve as a valuable reference for developing strategies, policies, and procedures for practicing clinicians."

    Weighted Numerical Score: 98 – 5 Stars! Thank you, Doody’s!
