Advancing the Frontiers of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation tests the limits of traditional thinking in the field and challenges readers to integrate their practices into comprehensive disease treatment programs. The 11-part text contains 30 chapters written by some of the world's most renowned scholars, researchers, and clinicians in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation. It offersreaders both a broad overview of the field and an in-depth analysis of contemporary issues facing practitioners.

An outstanding team of editors—Jean Jobin, PhD; Francois Maltais, MD; Paul Poirier, MD; Pierre LeBlanc, MD; and Clermont Simard, PhD—expertly introduces and summarizes the book's contents. Thought-provoking scholarly papers from an international symposium on advancing services in cardiopulmonary rehabilitation have been edited into book format, making the text a readable, credible, and highly relevant reference.

The up-to-date text addresses service organization, pharmacological treatments, new technologies, home rehabilitation programs, integration of community-based programs and rehabilitation services, screening criteria for rehabilitation, integration of unconventional approaches and psychosocial services, and exercise prescription. The text features the following:

-Clear and compelling arguments about combining cardiac and pulmonary services to reduce costs and improve services

-A rich blend of experience and insight from international authors and presenters

-Comprehensive information that is of current interest and expertly balanced with historical perspective
Advancing the Frontiers of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation is an essential reference for professionals in the field.
