DPT 7111 - Cardioulmonary Lab Credits: 1 SH
This lab will integrate information from lecture and other assignments, allowing practice of assessment and intervention skill necessary to successful work with patients who have cardiopulmonary dysfunction. Specific components will include: examination and evaluation, diagnostic procedures, goal setting, direct intervention in relation to prescribing exercise, monitoring exercise tolerance, promoting breathing and airway clearance, and health promotion. All course work will be directed towards building sound clinical judgment for evidence-based practice as outlined in the Guide to Physical Therapist Practice. These activities will reinforce clinical logic and help students learn to apply rehabilitation techniques primarily to adult- and pediatric patients with cardiopulmonary dysfunction at various stages of involvement.
