Are you challenged by the acuity and complexity of today’s acute care patients? This course is designed to develop the clinical decision-making of participants so that they can provide safe, effective and evidence-based therapy to adult acute cardiac patients. This course is lecture based and focuses on the normal and abnormal responses to exercise. Understanding normal exercise physiology will allow the participant to also recognize abnormal data. The course will review heart rate, blood pressure, respiratory rate and oximetry responses to exercise. The participant will learn to utilize MET calculations, understand heart rate formulas and blood pressure formulas and know when to terminate exercise. This course is of value to physical therapists, occupational therapists and exercise physiologists who want to have a greater understanding on how to interpret hemodynamic responses to increased workload. Emphasis will be on the acute care setting, however, the evidence can apply to all settings.
