Apply clinical decision-making process related to the pathophysiology and differential diagnosis of heart, lung, vascular (CVP) and lymphatic disorders. Integrate the indications of mobilizing patients in high acuity CVP patients including pre- and post-operative patients including heart and lung transplant and ventricular assistive devices. Relate the various oxygen therapies including mechanical ventilation and patient mobilization on the different oxygen systems. Apply safe mobilization principles including lines, tubes, ventilators, oxygen, and other adjuncts necessary for patient monitoring and treatment. Implement psychomotor skills involved in mobilizing high acuity patients through cardiovascular, pulmonary, vascular, and lymphatic case analysis. Utilize new evidence-based articles on best patient management of CVP medically complex patients.

Target Audience
OTs, OTAs, PTs, PTAs, SLPs, ATCs and Educators

Confirmation Notes


Treating the complex cardiovascular and pulmonary patient can be challenging. Gain knowledge on physiological monitoring, diagnostic testing, and utilization of functional and objective measures for effective clinical decision making for best patient outcomes working in an interdisciplinary team. Explore new evidence regarding best patient management of medically complex patients. Correlate the pathophysiology in common cardiovascular, pulmonary and lymphatic disorders including congestive heart failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome, post-intensive care syndrome, heart transplants, lung transplants, ventricular assistive devices and lymphedema among others to your evaluation and treatment decisions. Case analysis of complex patients will further bridge the gap between content knowledge and clinical application.
