More About This Textbook

Overview

This book provides physiotherapists and exercise professionals with a comprehensive resource on the exercise components and skills of constructing and teaching CR exercise. It addresses the scope of knowledge and skills required by exercise specialists developing, delivering and teaching exercise based CR programmes. It has an evidence-based framework, and provides practical advice and suggestions based on the clinical experience of the contributing authors. Among the topics covered are assessment, exercise monitoring, the use of music, safety, teaching skills and maintaining physical activity. Thus the book provides a comprehensive and practical text that can be used to plan, develop and deliver all phases of exercise based CR.

"...provides a virtual pharmacopoeia of exercise guidelines for patients with cardiovascular disease, with specific reference to exercise prescription, risk stratification, exercise physiology, monitoring techniques, and leadership and organizational skills. The authors represent a prestigious group of scientists, clinicians, researchers, and teachers, who are authorities in their respective fields. Clearly, the contributors have painstakingly worked to summarize, in a clear and concise manner, the latest research findings in each area, highlighting patient care and related applications. A "must-read" for clinicians in the field of cardiac rehabilitation. I highly recommend this extraordinary text !"
—Barry A. Franklin, PhD, Director, Cardiac Rehabilitation and Exercise Laboratories, William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Michigan USA; Professor of Physiology, Wayne State University, School of Medicine, Detroit, Michigan
