Clinical Exercise Physiology Hardback

Edited by Jonathan K. Ehrman, Paul Gordon, Paul S. Visich, Steven J. Keteyian

Description

As the profession of clinical exercise physiology continues to evolve, there is one cornerstone text that evolves along with it.

Clinical Exercise Physiology, Fourth Edition With Web Resource, has been a mainstay in the field since its inception in 2003, and the revisions and additions to this latest rendition reinforce its elite status. As the most comprehensive resource available, Clinical Exercise Physiology, Fourth Edition, provides greater coverage and depth of diseases than is typically found in most clinical exercise physiology textbooks.

It thoroughly examines the effects of exercise on chronic disease and then investigates 24 chronic conditions, covering the scope of each disease as well as the pathophysiology, medications, and clinical applications.

It also examines clinical considerations and exercise prescriptions for four special populations. This fourth edition reflects the latest American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) standards and guidelines, making it an ideal resource for candidates preparing for ACSM Clinical Exercise Physiologist certification.

In addition to updated content that aligns with current science and evidence-based practice guidelines, the fourth edition also incorporates the following:* A closer and more up-to-date look at the state of the profession* A new web resource featuring case studies that depict real-life scenarios* A new chapter on Parkinson's disease* Enhanced coverage of exercise testing and exercise prescription, in separate chapters to delve deeper into each of those topics* An expanded chapter on end-stage renal disease, to more broadly cover chronic kidney disease* Significant revisions to chapters on metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and heart failureThe online case studies are written in the form of SOAP (Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Plan) notes, reflecting common medical chart documentation, to help readers experience realistic examples.

The text also offers Practical Application sidebars in each chapter; some of these sidebars focus on exercise prescription, and other Practical Application sidebars review the relevant literature related to physiological adaptations to exercise training.

To aid in course preparation, instructors are provided a test package, chapter quizzes, and a presentation package plus image bank. Clinical Exercise Physiology, Fourth Edition, offers a contemporary review of the variety of diseases and conditions that students and professionals may encounter in the field.

New and veteran clinical exercise physiologists alike, as well as those preparing for ACSM certification exams, will appreciate the in-depth coverage of the clinical populations that benefit from physical activity and exercise.
