Overview

Safe and effective management of the patient is a top priority for every rehabilitation clinician in the acute care setting. Physical Therapy in Acute Care: A Clinician's Guide is a user-friendly, research-based text that enables the clinician to manage acute care patients successfully. Physical Therapy in Acute Care provides clinicians with an understanding of the basic physiological mechanism underlying normal function of all major organ systems, contrasted with the pathophysiology of disease or disorders that physical therapists will most often encounter in an acute care environment. Daniel Malone and Kathy Lee Bishop-Lindsay provide a comprehensive review of acute physical therapy best practice. This text builds upon basic, entry-level knowledge by addressing important components of an exam, discussing relevant medical tests, listing diseases and diagnoses alphabetically with brief medical management, and presenting case studies.
