- Pub. Date:
- Elsevier Health Sciences
Summary of reference material related to the physical therapy treatment of patients with cardiac or pulmonary dysfunctions. It includes a variety of information, including normal anatomy and physiology, pathology and pathophysiology of commonly encountered cardiac and pulmonary disorders, laboratory values, diagnostic tests and procedures, surgical interventions, pharmacology, pediatrics, and physical therapy evaluation and treatment.
• Bulleted lists and numerous tables and figures make the information easy to reference and use. Many sections include clinical implications of other medical diagnoses - including conditions which affect a patient's ability to exercise or perform rehabilitation activities - so readers know how to tailor therapy to individual patient needs.
• Concise summaries provide quick access to the pathophysiological effects, clinical manifestations and available treatments of specific diagnoses. Extensive cross-referencing facilitates retrieval of information.
