Overview

Covers 24 diseases and conditions

Audiences: Study resource for ACSM Clinical Exercise Physiology Registry Program candidates; text for upper-level undergraduate and lower-level graduate clinical exercise physiology courses; reference for sports medicine specialists, exercise and sport science educators, physical therapists, and athletic trainers.

Stay on top of the latest advances in the emerging field of clinical exercise physiology. Here is the most comprehensive and up-to-date book available for new and veteran clinical exercise physiologists and those preparing for the new ACSM Clinical Exercise Physiology Registry Examination.

Edited by respected scholars in the field, Clinical Exercise Physiology is the most expansive resource available in the field and provides the latest information on the key practice and disease areas of clinical exercise physiology, including endocrinology, the metabolic system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, oncology, the immune system, bone and joints, and the neuromuscular system. This text also covers the important issues for clinical exercise physiologists to understand about the special populations of children, the elderly, and female athletes.

The easy-to-navigate book is organized into eight parts. Part I covers the fundamentals of clinical exercise physiology. Parts II through VIII describe in detail 24 disease states and conditions that clinical exercise physiologists routinely encounter in their work; these chapters also provide guidance for the expert care of these populations.

The logical order of the chapters makes key information easy to find. Each chapter covers the scope of the condition; its physiology and pathophysiology and treatment options; clinical considerations, including the administration of a graded exercise test; and exercise prescription specific to the condition.

The book contains numerous features that will enhance your understanding of the material:

·         Each chapter includes a glossary and reference list.

·         Case studies and discussion questions appear throughout the text to highlight important concepts.

·         Practical applications boxes include tips on client-clinician interaction, a literature review, and a summary of exercise prescription.

 

Whether you use it as a text, study guide, or professional reference, Clinical Exercise Physiology is the definitive resource on the use of exercise training for the prevention and treatment of clinical diseases and disorders.
