Chapter 12: The Cardiovascular System

By Catherine Goodman, MBA, PT, CBP and Kenda Fuller, PT, NCS This course utilizes text from the hardback textbook by Catherine Goodman, MBA, PT, CBP, and Kenda Fuller, PT, NCS “Pathology: Implications for the Physical Therapist” ©2008. Pathology offers guidelines, precautions, and contraindications for interventions with patients who have musculoskeletal or neuromuscular problems as well as other conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or pancreatitis. In addition to addressing specific diseases and conditions, this text emphasizes health promotion and disease prevention strategies and covers issues with implications for physical therapy management, such as injury, inflammation, and healing. With this practical and evidence-based text, now enhanced with full-color illustrations and the latest research, you'll know what to factor into your clinical decisions to achieve the best outcomes for your patients
