Plan for Handling Medical Situation during RNST Practice

While we hope not to have any severe injuries or medical issues occur during practice, we want to have a plan in place should a situation arise with a skier.  We want to ensure the affected skier has their coach with them as they go back to base and that there’s a plan for the other skiers in the group.  Click here for a brief summary of the plan, a copy of which isalso included in the RNST Coaches Policy.




Concussion Training Module

While we have never had a skier suffer a head injury, it is good to know what to do should a skier or biker crash and bang their head. Below is a link to the on-line training modules on concussion.  The Center for Disease Control (CDC) module takes about 30 minutes  and is quite comprehensive. State law now requires all high school coaches  take some training in concussion and we believe that it is important for all of us to take the course as well.  When you do take it, please let Michael O'Connor (mkoconnor@mayo.edu) know.

Asthma Training Module

An asthma action plan or AAP is an individualized plan created in collaboration between a patient and their health care provider. While almost all AAP’s direct the use of an albuterol inhaler for symptoms – there can be differences in doses and frequency.

 

There are many different AAP’s available but the majority use a green, yellow, red format to categorize and relay information. It doesn’t happen often but best practices for asthma means a coach should technically have an AAP for any player who has asthma. That action plan will tell you what symptoms may appear for a single player if their asthma is flaring up and what medication (albuterol or levalbuteral) to use and how much or how often to use it.

 

The biggest problem is that many coaches don’t know some of their players have asthma – then when they start having some rather startling symptoms, the coach didn’t know what to do, or they might have known but the player didn’t have any albuterol/rescue inhaler with them. 


Here’s the web page describing an AAP along with a copy you can download. We will be asking parents for a copy from their health provider. All kids with asthma should have an AAP – it’s a requirement in MN that all prescribing providers provide one.
