Cardiopulmonary Lab

Cardiac and pulmonary physiologies are explored incorporating therapeutic exercises to improve ventilatory capacity and cardiopulmonary function. Recognition of safety parameters including precautions, contraindications and considerations are required, as is an understanding of normal and abnormal physiological responses associated with varying forms of exercise. Emphasis is placed on understanding the role of the physical therapist assistant while performing interventions, assessments and program upgrades within the established plan of care and on appropriate education, communication and documentation.
