Knowledge and understanding: the student should be familiar with the tools and techniques of fist aid in the muskoloskeletal injuries, primary resuscitation, the BLS-D algorithm, airway obstruction clearance techniques, and the management of common out-of-hospital emergencies / emergency. Recognize cardiac arrest, alert territorial rescue, initiate BLS-D maneuvers; if available and indicated, use automatic external defibrillator.
• Applying knowledge and understanding: the student should acquire the skills to cope with and recognize dislocation, fracture, muscle injury, cardiac arrest and other common emergencies. The student will be expected to identify the most rational and rapid hypotheses for diagnosis and treatment using the BLS-D algorithm and will learn to perform chest compressions, ventilate the patient by employing additional means such as the AMBU balloon and face masks, learn about and use the Automated External Defibrillator (AED), and immobilize the limbs.
• Making judgements: the student will learn to apply the BLS-D algorithm independently and will acquire the fundamental knowledge and skills to decide when the BLS-D approach is indicated and when is suitable to move the athlete.
• Communication: the student will learn to collaborate effectively with other "lay" rescuers, expose the relevant data of a given case to the Emergency medical services dispatcher, and autonomously continue cardiopulmonary resuscitation maneuvers.
• Learning skills: The student will learn to acquire the technical and organizational skills for the basic management of medical emergency through simulative techniques (simulation based learning), he/she will thus be exposed to a highly interactive and immersive learning mode, with important insights into the choices and actions made during simulation. In addition, the student will learn fundamentals of pathophysiology and critical care medicine that he or she will be able to expand upon in more advanced courses.


Basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology.

• Capsule-ligaments injuries of the knee, the ankle and the shoulder

Teaching Methods

The lectures (48H) will be carried out with PowerPoint presentations. Lectures will actively involve students in the learning process (active learning) through the analysis and interpretation of clinical cases.

Verification of learning

The exam paper consist of MCQ questions on the topic of sport traumatology, BSLD; emergencies, drowning.
The final grade is expressed in 30/30 and it is the result of the average of every single part.
