Cardiovascular Assessment and Cardiac Rehabilitation
Heavy emphasis will be placed on the anatomy and physiology of cardio-pulmonary systems and peripheral circulation, hemo-dynamics, and regulation of circulatory performance. The cardiac cycle, heart sounds, and intrinsic electrical control of the heart are part of the academic challenge in this course. EKG interpretation, 12-lead placement, and various GXT protocols for those with cardiac and pulmonary compromises will be presented. In addition, the field of cardiac rehab as well as pulmonary rehab will be included.
