Is Your School/Team/League Prepared?

Bulldog 19 ·
Take one minute and watch this video. You'll never wonder why coaches should be required to maintain CPR/AED certification again. And you'll understand why we have the AEDs in the locations that we do. Because in the case of Sudden Cardiac Arrest, we don't have time to wait for EMS to arrive. Because that school had an AED and because that school's staff was trained in its use, and because that school had a Certified Athletic Trainer onsite, those parents watched their daughter die. And then...

The Unfortunate Side of Sports

Bulldog 19 ·
I shared some information earlier this evening with a few posters on here privately, and I wish I could share more publicly, but I don't believe that I can do so due to health privacy. I know I have not been a frequent poster for some time, so while there are plenty who surely know who I am, I'm sure there are others who do not. So real quickly, I am a Certified Athletic Trainer working at the high school level. I have been a member here for close to 10 years I believe and I've read a lot of...

Very good, thank you for posting. While I am assuming these were actual accidents, that fortunetly doesn't happen too often but when it does its devastating. I have to tell you, I am amazed at how many people come to post here about their players injuries, and they haven't even reached college yet. I have been here for a long time and it seems like its rampid. Some of these minor injuries can turn into a lifelong problem. Athletes seldom feel 100 % healthy and it beginning sooner while they...

Gov, I think it's a very powerful message. I've probably watched that video over 10 times already. It has gone viral on the internet, that Facebook video has been seen over 6.3 million times already. In Texas, all coaches are required to maintain CPR/AED/First Aid training. Our school employs two full-time Athletic Trainers along with a full-time school nurse. We have 11 AEDs on our campus and have over 50 staff members trained in CPR/AED/First Aid. Our goal for the 2016-2017 school year is...

Yes, AED should be available everywhere. Our Men's Group at our church raised money and had one installed at our church. Fortunately it has needed to be used, but it is there.

Great video. Ironically, I'm in Georgia (like the video) and our baseball field has an AED installed outside the concession window, so there's always access to it for practice, etc., even when concession is locked. All coaches are trained on the use as well. That video really makes a statement.

Bulldog, This hit very close to home. My father in law suffered sudden cardiac arrest a few years ago. By the grace of a higher power, he happened to be with us at the time. He was supposed to be home alone. Due to training that my husband received in high school, he was able to start immediate CPR. We were in a restaurant and they did not have an AED. Luckily, the fire department was there in a matter of minutes and he received life saving AED treatment before the critical 5 minute mark. He...

Keewartson was playing in a 14U tournament at a larger complex north of our city and located in the middle of nowhere. On the adjacent field a coach went down and it was a scramble to find 6-8 adults that could perform CPR on a rotating basis until an ambulance arrived. Sometimes it takes something like this to get AEDs installed, which this complex did after this incident. (The coach survived). Next time you are at a complex, check around for an AED. You may need to use it, and the newer...

Bulldog, thanks for taking the time to post this. As Bulldog mentioned, all coaches are trained for these circumstances. However, there is always that question as to whether they will respond. In this case, it is apparent that the training took over. I have used my training two times albeit not at school. One was to save my Father in Law. PLEASE take the time to get trained and certified. On another note, AEDs are to be in places that are well marked and available to for use. However, as...

We are looking into a program right now that would provide EKG, echocardiogram, and a carotid artery ultrasound, nearly free of charge! We are hoping it gets approved, because I don't want to have something happen and think about "could we have caught that?" Also, I have attached a blog post I wrote last spring about our AEDs on our campus.. http://ksi.uconn.edu/2015/04/0...rnal-defibrillators/

269 seconds. That's the time it took for the CPR and the AED to do its job. 269 seconds from the time Claire collapsed until she woke up. An amazing story, read the teacher's account here! http://www.dedicatedtoallbetter.org/5035-2/ Want to know how the Lord was watching over her that day? Just 24 hours earlier her volleyball team was playing an away game at a school whose AED contained dead batteries. Had she collapsed just 24 hours earlier, she'd be dead.

Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I'm just reaching out to the community if anyone currently or had similar experiences. My son is a HS freshman and plays multi sports. We let him play the sports he likes, but his always been passionate with track field and baseball since middle school. Just a little background, he is well rounded kid , on top of his academics, and plays HS orchestra. His track and field events are 200, 400, LJ, TJ and HJ and made district meets. If it goes well he hopes to get...

If you search you will find threads on playing multiple sports. My son played varsity soccer and baseball. He thought he was going to play varsity basketball after being the starting point guard on the freshman team. The varsity coach cut him from the program for never making “optional” workouts or playing summer basketball. The coach said he didn’t have enough time to put the proper focus on a third sport. In the summer he played travel baseball and attended a high end goalie day camp. In...

Welcome to the forum. Yes, I would say most regulars here have had similar experience. Regarding multiple sports in HS, it is great to let them play the sports that they enjoy. Whether multiple sports is realistic or not and for how long depends on the talent of the student athlete, the size, strength and depth of the HS program and whether the sports cross over at the same time of year. HS sports usually demand full commitment at least to one sport at a time. Excelling in HS sports usually...

Baseball and track together will not work in college. The seasons conflict. The few college multi sport athletes generally play one sport in the fall and one in the spring. Usually football in the fall and baseball or track in the spring.

My son also plays multiple sports. He is a junior this year. Just this year he dropped basketball from his list of soccer and baseball. He has always played 3 sports. We found that basketball was the least favorite if he had to drop one and he has focused much of his winter season working on increasing his strength and focusing on pitching. It all depends on which one he sees himself at when it comes time to think about playing at a higher level. I have watched my son grow in both soccer and...

Welcome. Good news: He is doing sports that require explosive development which translates well to baseball. Bad news: They are doing the same time of the year, and as far as my understanding on track it requires most of a full day to hang out for your heats. If he has national level skills in track he could keep up track and play summer ball to keep his baseball skills up in case he is one of the rare kids who could do both in college, or more likely he will probably have to chose one or...

Like anything in life, the greater you are the more options you have. Billy Hamilton 6.1-6.2 sixty types can do track & Baseball in college. If they insisted on it in the recruiting process, there would be a D1 that would step up and make it happen. for most mere mortals? No chance
