As a part of Essentials in Physical Therapy led by Series Editor Dr. Marilyn Moffat, Cardiopulmonary Essentials: Applying the Preferred Physical Therapist Practice PatternsSM is edited by Dr. Donna Frownfelter in a user-friendly format that not only brings together the conceptual frameworks of the Guide language, but also parallels the patterns of the Guide. In each case, where appropriate, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and imaging is provided. Each pattern then details two to three diversified case studies coinciding with the Guide format. The physical therapist examination, including history, systems review, and specific tests and measures for each case, as well as evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care, and evidence-based interventions are also addressed.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"If you are involved with cardiopulmonary patients, this book of Essentials should be considered 'essential' to your immediate practice as well as your continuing education. Actually the series of three available books (and one more to come) should be in your own professional library at home, in the office or in the clinical facility."   

— Jay Schleichkorn, PhD, PT, Dr. Jay's E-Book Reports

 "The cases are so well presented students and practitioners in other fields would benefit by working through this." 

— SciTech Book News

 "I like this application of the Patient Management Model, as outlined in the Guide, in relation to Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Practice patterns. The clear presentation of Case Studies takes the clinician from prevention and wellness through clinical illness. It is clear and clinician-friendly and it will assist in decision making related to appropriate tests and measures, evaluation and intervention planning. Well done!"  

— Joe Adler MS PT, CCS, Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania

Marilyn Moffat, PT, DPT, PhD, FAPTA, CSCS, a recognized leader in the United States and internationally, is a practitioner, a teacher, a consultant, a leader, and an author. She received her baccalaureate degree from Queens College and her physical therapy certificate and PhD degrees from New York University. She is a Full Professor of Physical Therapy at New York University, where she directs both the professional doctoral program (DPT) and the post-professional graduate master’s degree program in pathokinesiology. She has been in private practice for more than 40 years and currently practices in the New York area. Dr. Moffat was one of the first individuals to speak and write about the need for a doctoral entry-level degree in physical therapy. Her first presentation on this topic was given to the Section for Education in 1977. Dr. Moffat completed a 6-year term as the President of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) in 1997. Prior to that, she had served on the APTA Board of Directors for 6 years and also as President of the New York Physical Therapy Association for 4 years. During her term as President of the APTA, she played a major role in the development of the Association’s Guide to Physical Therapist Practice and was project editor of the Second Edition of the Guide. Among her many publications is the American Physical Therapy Association’s Book of Body Maintenance and Repair. As part of her commitment to research, Dr. Moffat is currently a member of the Board of Trustees of the Foundation for Physical Therapy, was a previous member of the Financial Advisory Committee, and has done major fundraising for them over the years.

She has given more than 800 professional presentations throughout her practice lifetime, and she has taught and provided consultation services in Taiwan, Thailand, Burma, Vietnam, Panama City, Hong Kong, and Puerto Rico. Her diversified background is exemplified by the vast number of APTA and New York Physical Therapy Association committees and task forces on which she has served or chaired. She has served as Editor of Physical Therapy, the official publication of the Association.
