Integrates the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice as it relates to the cardiopulmonary system in clinical care. Edited in a user-friendlly format that not only brings together the conceptual frameworks of the Guide language, but also parallels the patterns of the Guide. In each case, where appropriate, a brief review of the pertinent anatomy, physiology, pathology, pharmacology, and imaging is provided. Each pattern then details two to three diversified case studies coinciding with the Guide format. The physical therapist examination, including history, a systems review, and specific tests and measures for each case, as well as evaluation, diagnosis, prognosis, plan of care, and evidence-based interventions are also addressed.
