PT 521 - Patient Management 1 - Cardiopulmonary

(4 credits)
This course will address clinical and therapeutic interventions for patients with cardiovascular and pulmonary causes of thorax and movement dysfunction. It will build a foundation of how the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems support and influence performance of other bodily systems taught in future patient management courses. The Guide to Physical Therapist Practice will provide the framework for patient management. The course will consist of lecture and laboratory components. Emphasis will be on development of student skills in patient examination and therapeutic interventions in simulated cardiovascular and pulmonary patient-therapist situations. The laboratory component will enable students to develop skill in patient examination and therapeutic interventions through case studies as well as simulated and actual patient experiences. Fall.
