Medical Time Out

While it is imperative to have an Emergency Action Plan, it is equally important that the EAP be practiced and understood by all involved. A medical timeout is designed to prepare athletic trainers, emergency medical services, team physicians and anyone designated as responsible for the medical well-being of athletes or spectators on game day to be aware, prepared and educated.

Emergency Action Plans

One of the first lines of defense for catastrophic injuries is having a comprehensive, detailed plan for most catastrophic scenarios. This is commonly referred to as an Emergency Action Plan (EAP). The National Athletic Trainers Association has published a position statement titled “Emergency Planning in Athletics” that provides guidelines for the development and implementation of an EAP and is available online. This page summarizes the main points of this document.
