Posted by: Elizabeth Richardson on June 4, 2019, No Comments

Jayme Galdieri, an athletic trainer in the department of Intercollegiate Athletics at East Stroudsburg University, presented “Bowel Perforation in a College Football Athlete” in a webinar format through the National Athletic Trainers Association (NATA). The webinar is now available as a continuing education presentation.

“A bowel perforation is a unique and rare injury in athletics. Signs and symptoms can present hours or days after initial injury, and while delayed identification often occurs, this delay also comes with a significant increase in complications, morbidity, and patient mortality,” Galdieri said. “I thought it was a worthy topic to present on a national level through NATA. It’s my hope that attendees of this presentation will be equipped with a better understanding for this rare but incredibly dangerous injury that can occur in athletics at any level.”

The presentation along with an accompanying continuing education quiz is available in the professional development section of NATA’s website. It is $15 for NATA members and $25 for non-members.
