This course gives an evidence based clinical approach to the cardiopulmonary perspective of assessment and management of acutely-ill patients (of any diagnosis) across the continuum of care. Therapists working in different settings are frequently challenged with complex patients with cardiopulmonary diagnoses including CHF, Pneumonia and COPD or multiple systemic co-morbidities with effects on the cardiopulmonary system. This course will empower the therapist with assessment tools and understanding of the pathophysiology of cardiopulmonary conditions, to modify their therapy accordingly. The course content includes cardiopulmonary physical examination including auscultation, ABG analysis, CXR etc, exercise testing and prescription with strong emphasis on outcome measures and documenting effectiveness of therapy. Pulmonary interventions taught in this course are positioning, breathing techniques, chest clearance techniques and adjuncts of respiratory therapy like use of flutter, acapella etc.
