Course Brief Description:
This course will focus on the essentials of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation as it applies to the post-acute transitional care unit. The course will cover a refresher of the cardiac and pulmonary physiology and how the physiology plays a role in therapy and why it is critical to monitor this patient population during routine therapy sessions. Most common pathologies seen in the TCU setting, and treatment strategies will be discussed. You will also have an opportunity to practice auscultation of the heart and lungs and listen to audio of the common normal and abnormal lung and heart sounds and how they can help you tailor your treatment for the best outcome. This course will help the therapist develop and monitor an appropriate exercise prescription for your cardiac and pulmonary patients. Please bring your stethoscope and patient questions.
