Pre-Participation Physical Exams: Are We Doing Enough?, Steven Jacob Pietrusza Jan 2018

Pre-Participation Physical Exams: Are We Doing Enough?, Steven Jacob Pietrusza

Physician Assistant Scholarly Project Posters

•Inclusion of screening electrocardiograms (EKGs) during pre-participation physical examination has been a topic of debate for some time. There is unquestioned usefulness in the ability of a well-trained health care provider in using EKG to identify cardiac abnormalities.

•Further, there have been several contemporary EKG criteria published that increase specificity and sensitivity of detection of disease. However, these criteria do not account for athletes less than 14 years of age, and that demographic represents a large portion of patients seeking pre-participation screenings in the United States.

•The lack of research into pediatric cardiac remodeling secondary to activity, coupled with the ...

Background:

Dancers are susceptible to overuse foot and ankle injuries, however there is a lack biomechanical studies examining foot mechanics to explain the causality of these injuries. The purpose of this study was to determine the intra and inter-assessor repeatability of a modified Rizzoli Foot Model (RFM) for ballet dancers.

Methods: Six university-level ballet dancers performed the following trials in randomized order, natural stance, turnout plié and stance, and two dynamic trials; turnout rise and flex-point-flex movement. A twelve-camera motion capture system were used to track fourteen reflective markers and one triad on the following segments: shank, entire foot, hindfoot ...


Sports Injury Prevention In Danbury, Ct, Cori Polonski Jan 2017

Sports Injury Prevention In Danbury, Ct, Cori Polonski

Family Medicine Clerkship Student Projects

Sports Injuries, especially overuse injuries, cause a significant amount of morbidity and public health cost, especially for young athletes. Importantly, many of these injuries can be prevented with proper training and some novel approaches to warm-up and training. To address this concern, I worked with Orthopedic Specialists of CT and the athletic trainers at Danbury High School to come up with some educational materials for patients on effective ways to prevent sports medicine injuries.

Purpose

Aim : To review the applications and indications of sonography for forefoot disorders, especially gout and plantar plate injury of 1st MTP joint.

Introduction

  • Forefoot disorders are common but forefoot ultrasound is underutilized.
  • Point-of-Care Ultrasound was utilized in initial workup evaluating acute on chronic 1st MTP joint pain in our case study.

Do Mouth Guards Prevent Concussions In Contact Sports?, Lindsey Siemens

Physician Assistant Scholarly Project Posters

• Concussion is one of the leading cause of traumatic brain injury in 13-22 year olds

• The purpose of this study is to determine whether or not mouth guards provide protection from sports-related concussions in 13-22 year old athletes participating in contact sports

• Which type of mouth guard is the most effective in preventing or reducing the severity of these injuries?


The Efficacy Of Electrocardiograms As A Screening Tool To Detect Cardiac Abnormalities In Young Athletes, Cody William Jan 2015

The Efficacy Of Electrocardiograms As A Screening Tool To Detect Cardiac Abnormalities In Young Athletes, Cody William

Physician Assistant Scholarly Project Posters

• Sudden cardiac death (SCD) among athletes can be attributed to increased cardiovascular demands associated with vigorous exercise.

• The majority of athletes who experience sudden cardiac death are asymptomatic.

• Pre-participation history and physicals, (H&P) help to identify underlying cardiovascular disorders with the potential to increase the risk of SCD in an athlete.

• The efficacy of pre-participation H&Ps to identify underlying cardiac etiology has been debated.

• The purpose of this research is to:

---Determine incidence and cause of SCD among athletes (Table 1).

---Determine the efficacy and evidenced-based criteria for the interpretation of ECGs in athletes.

---Evaluate cost-effectiveness of screening ...
