Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy
This book is part of a series that attempts to link the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice Guide with everyday practice and is written to help physical therapist practitioners develop the decision-making skills that are consistent with an autonomous, doctoring profession. It is well-referenced throughout and typically cites normative values for tests and measures and provides evidence for efficacy and effectiveness of interventions where available. References are generally current, and most cite peer-reviewed journals. Content is comprehensive, considering that it is not feasible for any reference to include every possible condition seen in the clinic. Chapters are organized consistently and include, as appropriate for each pattern, sections on anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology, as well as commonly used diagnostic or imaging procedures and pharmacological interventions.
Integrates real-life, clinical cases within the textbook to enable the reader to apply concepts covered in the chapter. Content covers the spectrum from acute to long-term conditions. Special topics are highlighted at the end to keep abreast of new directions and initiatives in the specialty. Focuses on evidence-based medicine to bridge the gap between the importance of research to reimbursement. Integrates oxygen transport throughout to demonstrate how cardiac and pulmonary function together. Focuses on evidence-based medicine to bridge the gap between the importance of research and reimbursementUses case vignettes as models of evidence-based practice and clinical decision making to help the student apply real-life scenarios to evidence-based practice and the process of decision making. Pharmacology chapter has been substantially revised and updated to show the importance of pharmacology to cardiopulmonary care.
