Advances in Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation
In recent years, research has demonstrated that exercise programs can benefit patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and patients with congestive heart failure (CHF). Yet many physicians do not refer such patients to any kind of exercise or rehabilitation program. Advances in Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation examines the history of how pulmonary and cardiac diseases have been treated and shows how that history tends to constrain contemporary thinking in spite of significant advances in treatment.
The book offers review articles and some original research. The editors' comprehensive introduction and conclusion provide an invaluable synthesis and overview of current understanding and future directions for cardiopulmonary rehabilitation.
Whether you are a clinician, a researcher, an educator, or an administrator, Advances in Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation will give you
This well-researched volume (more than 2,200 bibliographical references) is essential for anyone who deals with cardiac or pulmonary patients. This is the only single volume that probes the scientific, clinical, economic, and even psychosocial frontiers of cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation.
