What is a Leadership Mastermind?
The Napolean Hill definition of a mastermind. He is who coined the term in his book Think and Grow Rich. Masterminding is a group of individuals working together for a common goal…maybe professional advancement. There is no 1 person above the other…all minds work together and are equal in bringing ideas forward.

Appropriate care of the Spine Injured Athlete:
Have an EAP with local EMS
Use the “Medical Timeout”
Proper assessment and management of the injury
Remove equipment prior to transport
Equipment removal should be performed by at least 3 experienced rescuers
Know the different equipment for the different sports…and how to remove it
Apply rigid CERVICAL stabilization device prior to transport
Spine injured Athlete should be transported using a rigid immobilization device
NASEMSO does NOT support the use of rigid backboards for transport…only extraction.
Certain situations warrant one but not many spine injuries require transport using a rigid immobilization device
Use techniques to minimize spinal motion
Develop a plan prior to the start of the any events
Patient transport directly to a facility that can handle the spinal trauma.
Collaborate with medical staff, coaches and athletes in prevention of spine injuries
Medical team needs a strong working knowledge of current research
Future research continue to investigate the efficacy of these devices
