June 29, 2015 2 Comments
Exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH), a preventable and treatable but potentially life-threatening condition that can affect athletes under our care, is the topic of our tenth podcast. And #DrinkToThirst is one of the chief themes to be found therein.
We’re proud to publish the 3rd international consensus statement on EAH in our July 2015 CJSM, and we’re delighted to have the lead author as our guest on the associated podcast.Dr Tamara Hew-Butler is an associate professor of Exercise Science at Oakland University in Rochester, MI. She obtained her: BS in Kinesiology at the University of California at Los Angeles, CA; Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA; Residency and Fellowship at the Harris County Podiatric Surgical Residency Program, Houston, TX; and Philosophy Doctor (PhD) at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. Dr Hew-Butler is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (FACSM) and specializes in both sports medicine and exercise physiology. Her expertise is in exercise-associated hyponatremia and the endocrine regulation of fluid balance during exercise. She trained under Timothy D. Noakes MD, DSc and Joseph G. Verbalis MD and has published ~50 papers on the topic.
Join us in the rousing conversation, and learn i) why athletes should #DrinkToThirst; ii) why sidelines should have hypertonic saline as well as AEDs and access to cold-water immersion therapies; iii) and so much more.
