Description
The care of patients with heart failure costs the United States $32 billion annually. The body of evidence supporting exercise therapy for this patient population is growing. This course will provide a broad overview of heart failure pathophysiology including an explanation of the difference between diastolic and systolic heart failure. A primary focus of the course will be to highlight the common findings on a physical therapy examination seen in patients with heart failure. The course will conclude with the application of the literature to prescribing exercise in this patient population that can be applied across the continuum of care. Attendees will learn practical applications of the patient examination and current evidence that can be applied immediately to their clinical setting.
