Do you work in an outpatient clinic or in Home Health and see patients with cardiovascular and pulmonary (CVP) disease? As the population ages, these diseases are more and more common. CVP diseases can be difficult to manage and can interfere with the treatment plan by limiting participation or preventing the patient from successfully working toward goals. This course provides an up to date pathophysiology review for the commonly seen cardiovascular and pulmonary diagnoses. You will acquire rehabilitation treatment techniques for adult patients with CVP disease including: primary and secondary prevention for CVD, breathing and airway clearance exercises/techniques and advanced interventions for complex CVP patients. This course also provides a comprehensive study of how CVP outcome measures can be utilized in the rehabilitation setting to assist with case management, discharge recommendations, assessment of deficits, and progression of the treatment plan. Clinical tips will be assimilated into all course material, and content is based on evidence and is designed to allow direct application to the Practitioner’s clinical practice.
