Clinical Exercise Physiology, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive look at the clinical aspects of exercise physiology by thoroughly examining the relationship between exercise and chronic disease.Updated and markedly revised throughout, this third edition reflects important changes that have occurred in the field. It provides professionals and students with fundamental knowledge of disease-specific pathology and treatment guidelines while also guiding readers through exercise testing and training principles for patients with chronic diseases.
The third edition of Clinical Exercise Physiology builds on information presented in the previous editions with reorganized chapters, updated and revised content, and the latest information on the key practice areas of clinical exercise physiology: endocrinology, the metabolic system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, oncology, the immune system, bone and joint health, and the neuromuscular system. The detailed chapters address 27 diseases and populations that clinical exercise physiologists encounter in their work and provide guidance for the expert care of the populations discussed. Each chapter covers the scope of the condition; its physiology, pathophysiology and treatment options; clinical considerations, including the administration of a graded exercise test; and exercise prescription.
