Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Physical Therapy: Evidence and Practice
Donna L. Frownfelter, Elizabeth W. Dean
Mosby/Elsevier, 2006 - Medical - 848 pages
Uniquely balanced in its coverage of cardiac and pulmonary systems in health and dysfunction, this student-friendly text includes a new holistic perspective on providing care. Based on the latest scientific literature and research, the text sets the foundation with strong A&P, assessment and intervention coverage. The focus of the rehabilitation section is on the patient, detailing therapy guidelines for patients with acute, chronic and critical care conditions, while also addressing special patient population, such as pediatrics and the elderly. The fourth edition expands its coverage of secondary conditions and has additional content on health care trends related to evidence-based management to promote cost-effective management. The concept of oxygen transport is interwoven throughout.
