Exertional Rhabdomyolysis in Athletes and Warfighters: Questions and Controversies discusses the fact that exertional rhabdomyolysis (ER) is on the rise and presents an overview of the key factors involved in this serious condition. Featuring the Sutton Clinical Lecture from the 2012 ACSM annual meeting, the DVD explores several pivotal issues relating to ER, including whether clinical guidance concerning ER exists and whether extreme exercise contributes to ER in some individuals, particularly warrior athletes. The DVD also looks at whether the presence of the sickle cell trait enhances a person's likelihood of contracting ER.
Among the topics covered:
• Why the interest in exertional rhabdomyolysis?
• Exertional rhabdomyolysis: the basics
• Is there guidance available to assist clinicians?
• Does extreme exercise contribute to ER in warrior athletes?
• Is sickle cell trait a culprit or an innocent confounder in ER?
• Do dietary supplements contribute to ER in warrior athletes?
