This convenient resource offers a wide range of information relating to the physical therapy management of patients with cardiopulmonary problems. From basic cardiopulmonary anatomy and physiology to physical therapy evaluation and treatment of cardiopulmonary dysfunction, it provides an essential overview of cardiopulmonary physical therapy that's valuable for both students and practitioners. The 2nd edition includes an introductory chapter on the oxygen transport pathway, as well as information on new drugs and treatment options. A comprehensive listing of pathologies in the chapter on cardiopulmonary pathology presents the most common cardiopulmonary diseases encountered in practice with regard to their place in the oxygen transport system. Coverage of pharmacology lists the latest drugs used for the treatment of cardiopulmonary disorders. Material specific to various practice settings orients readers to considerations for applying cardiopulmonary principles to practice. Follows the oxygen transport pathway - the delivery, uptake and, extrication of oxygen as it actually functions in a clinical setting - providing a logical framework for understanding cardiopulmonary concepts. Implications of defects in the pathway are explained - essential considerations for clinical practice. Descriptions of important interventions such as lung volume reduction surgery and lung transplantation are included. Illustrations have been completely revised and enhanced throughout, including visual depictions of the pathophysiology of left ventricular diastolic and systolic dysfunction, volume versus pressure overload, and dilated versus hypertrophies versus restrictive cardiomyophathies. Explanations of newer chemotherapeutic agents and other treatments have been added to the chapter on interventions. A new section on simple anthropometric measurements for determining obesity provides information on this current demographic trend in patient care and how it impacts assessment.
