Complete Guide to Respiratory Care in Athletes introduces the respiratory system and its function during exercise. It considers the main respiratory conditions affecting athletes and delivers practical advice for the management of respiratory issues in athletic populations.

With contributions from leading international experts, the book discusses fundamental scientific principles and provides pragmatic ‘hands-on’ clinical guidance to enable practical application. Each chapter includes useful pedagogical features such as case studies and guides for carrying out assessments. The book covers wide a range of topics, including:

       the respiratory system function during exercise

       environmental challenges to the upper and lower airways

       exercise induced bronchoconstriction

       asthma related issues in athletes

       allergic rhinitis in athletes

       exercise induced laryngeal obstruction (EILO)

       exercise induced dysfunctional breathing

       respiratory muscle training

       role of screening for respiratory issues in athletes

  • Assessing and dealing with respiratory infections in athletes

This text is key reading for both newly qualified and established medical, scientific and therapy practitioners who are working with athletes with respiratory issues. It is also a valuable resource for students of sports medicine, sports therapy, and sport and exercise science courses.
