Learn how to identify, treat, and prevent exertional heat illnesses and ensure your sporting events are safe. Exertional Heat Illnesses provides practitioners with all the information they need in one practical reference.

Renowned exercise researcher Lawrence Armstrong, PhD, and a team of eight colleagues examine the heat illnesses most common in athletes, recreation enthusiasts, and laborers.

The only book to focus exclusively on heat-related illnesses, Exertional Heat Illnesses is full of practical advice for professionals in a variety of medical, academic, and commercial settings. Athletic trainers, physicians, nurses, and emergency medical technicians will find effective treatment options for all exertional heat illnesses. Coaches, athletes, industrial supervisors, and military leaders will learn the causes of heat-related illnesses and ways to prevent them. Fitness, conditioning, and training specialists will gain useful information for their clients and students. Instructors and students interested in environmental exercise physiology will also find Exertional Heat Illnesses to be a valuable textbook for courses that require advanced study.

This resource is aligned with the current accepted standards and recommendations of two prominent health and sports medicine organizations—the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA).

The reference contains the following:

  • A handy breakdown of how the body reacts to different heat illnesses

  • Case reports detailing how other practitioners respond in real-life situations

  • Abstracts of four important position stands from the ACSM and NATA and the Web sites at which you can access them


With this reference, you’ll have the tools to help athletes maintain optimal health and performance during and after exercise, and you’ll have the knowledge to treat exertional heat illnesses promptly and properly should they occur.
