BB SUNDAY. OCTOBER 20, 1996 LIFE THE SALINA JOURNAt T SPORTS MEDICINE Team doctor worries about 2nd impact DR. PAUL DONOHUE North America Syndicate Dear Dr. Donohue: I am at loggerheads with our team doctor. Don't get me wrong. We all appreciate his offering -k of help, which is not compensated. But he's so fussy about the slightest head injury. He is deathly afraid of what he calls a second impact. He calls it "second- impact syndrome." Sometimes, he will order one of my kids out of action for a week or two after * getting a minor head injury. Is he going overboard, or am I too callous? — M.H. Dear M.H.: Coaches and team physicians often serve different masters. Second-impact syndrome is a real entity. It means occurrence of a second head injury before the signs of the earlier one have gone away. And that initial injury need not have been terribly serious. The player might have complained of a headache and had a temporary memory lapse. The player need not have lost consciousness for the specter of second-impact syndrome to arise. The reasoning behind second- impact syndrome is pretty straightforward: If the endangered player suffers a second head collision, he could lapse into a coma right there and then, especially if the initial injury caused a disturbance of blood flow to the brain, as it often does. A second impact thus might come before flow is readjusted. That second impact might cause a sudden rush of blood to the area, causing brain swelling and death. I am sure the team's doctor will lose no popularity by taking steps to protect your young players. The doctor is not being persnickety. He is being conscientious. Keep him around. I envy him, actually. Many doctors harbor an ambition to do their bit in the role of team physician. Should the opportunity come to me, I am sure I would court the ire of coaches. Dear Doctor: I have asthma and also a dream — a dream of someday getting to the Olympics. Does use of asthma drugs disqualify one from Olympic competition? I use an inhaler. — C.K. Dear C.K.: Asthma inhalant drugs such as terbutaline are considered to be stimulants, but currently their use is not banned. The doctor of an athlete using such drugs must notify Olympic authorities before the games start. Cortisone inhalant drugs are not banned either, but again, you must alert the authorities first. Dear Doctor: My son has taken up hockey with a vengeance. He plays the whole year, and at all hours. Lately, he has complained of chest pain and coughing when he is on the rink for any length of time. What does this mean? He's fine otherwise. — J.I. Dear J.I.: Do teammates have similar respiratory complaints? Have a talk with the rink manager. You should ask about air quality there. Hockey has environmental problems peculiar to that sport. There usually is a small, enclosed atmosphere, made worse by ice- resurfacing routines. The resurfacing vehicles often spew alarming amounts of nitrogen dioxide into the air. That can act as a lung irritant. Be sure the rink is properly ventilated, especially in warmer months, when the ice tends to require more intense resurfacing. Hockey is a physically demanding sport under the best of circumstances.

Part of the conditioning is running, of course, and I have always been able to run miles without a hitch. But I simply cannot sprint. Any sprint leaves me all tied up with leg pain. What's going on? — H.Z.R. Dear H.Z.R.: Your muscles have to learn how to deal with lactic acid, which they overproduce in fast running. With sprinting, there is a buildup of lactic acid from sugar stored in the leg muscles. The buildup can get so rapid that you cannot get rid of it fast enough. That buildup causes pain. I am sure you will work it out in time. It's just a matter of developing a pattern of personal exercise that develops some better efficiency in storage and use. Work on your own. Gradually increase the pace and length of sprints, and adjust where they fall in relation to the slower runs.
