Clinical Exercise Testing Book Excerpt:

In the last several years, Clinical Exercise Testing has become an increasingly important tool for patient evaluation in clinical medicine due to a growing awareness of the limitations of traditional resting cardiopulmonary measurements. Emphasizing scientific and technological advances and focusing on clinical applications for patient diagnosis and management, this volume provides a comprehensive interdisciplinary review of clinical exercise testing, concentrating on Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET). 25 reader-friendly chapters discuss important topics, including the physiologic responses to exercise in normal subjects, in the aged and in various disease states; the set-up of an exercise lab; the methodology and protocols used for clinical exercise testing; and an integrative approach to the interpretation of CPET results. CPET in heart failure, deconditioning, COPD, ILD, pulmonary vascular disease, neuromuscular disease, and asthma is thoroughly discussed. Clinical applications including pulmonary and cardiac rehabilitation, heart and lung transplantation evaluation, unexplained exertional dyspnea assessment, evaluation for lung resection and lung volume reduction surgery, and impairment-disability evaluation are also covered in detail. Additional chapters on clinical exercise testing in children, during pregnancy and the postpartum, and in other systemic disorders complete this extensive publication. Written by well-respected experts, this volume will be a valuable resource for a wide audience including pulmonologists, cardiologists, pediatricians, exercise physiologists, rehabilitation specialists, nurse clinician specialists, and respiratory therapists.

Exercise Testing and Prescription Lab Manual Book Excerpt:

With a focus on foundational information, the "Exercise Testing and Prescription Lab Manual, Second Edition," offers practical application of knowledge and skills associated with standardized health- and fitness-related tests. Progressing through 14 easy-to-follow experiential-based learning labs, readers will gain the skills and techniques required for successful completion of the ACSM Certified Health Fitness Specialist certification (CHFS). The improved second edition includes the latest updates consistent with the recent modifications published within the "ACSM's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription, Eighth Edition." In this new edition, readers will also find the following features: -In-depth content regarding functional parameters related to exercise, especially in regard to heart rate and blood pressure -Additional information on body composition testing focusing on improved knowledge and skills related to assessment of skinfolds and circumferences -New emphasis on the importance of assessment and how assessment relates to overall program development -An updated format that flows progressively through testing and prescription -Enhanced discussion questions within each lab, which incorporate more in-depth analysis of the information being covered Though most closely matched with ACSM CHFS certification guidelines, "Exercise Testing and Prescription Lab Manual," "Second" "Edition," is also useful for individuals preparing for certification within other training organizations or as a resource for the ACSM Certified Personal Trainer certification. The progression of labs through the testing and prescription process, easy-to-follow instructions, and forms and worksheets also make this lab manual an excellent experiential component for a course in exercise testing and prescription. "Exercise Testing and Prescription Lab Manual, Second Edition," is organized into three sections covering pretest responsibilities, exercise testing techniques, and exercise prescription. Readers will learn safety procedures and requirements for exercise testing equipment, follow step-by-step instructions for calibration of laboratory instruments, and learn guidelines for medical history evaluation, risk factor evaluation and stratification, and informed consent. Next, the application of techniques used in assessing the components of health-related fitness is presented. Within the exercise prescription section, readers learn about the calculation of metabolic work, the three phases of exercise prescription, assessment of participants' goals, and gaining participants' commitment to the exercise prescription. A final comprehensive lab challenges readers to apply techniques and principles in developing various case studies. Each lab features the same easy-to-follow format outlining the purpose of the lab, materials required, background information, procedures, discussion questions, and references. Detailed appendixes contain a summary of the effects of common pharmacological agents on cardiorespiratory responses at rest, common metric conversions used in exercise testing and prescription calculations, a list of metabolic and anthropometric formulas, and answers to lab questions. The appendixes also contain all forms and worksheets required for collecting data and completing the lab assignments. The second edition of the "Exercise Testing and Prescription Lab Manual" provides focused, step-by-step preparation for those studying for the ACSM CHFS certification. With its reorganized format, up-to-date information, and forms and worksheets, this text is also a valuable best-practices reference for health and fitness specialists certified by the ACSM and other organizations.

Exercise Testing and Training in Coronary Heart Disease Book Excerpt:

This study on "Exercise testing and training in coronary heart disease" is a remarkable compilation of numerous research studies, primarily from labora tories in Europe and the United States over the last decade or more. The topic reflects a growing awareness of and concern about the rapidly expanding understanding of the pathophysiology of coronary atherosclerotic heart disease. Since muscular exercise increases aerobic metabolism of myocardial and working skeletal muscles, greater flow of oxygenated blood is required by each; yet underlying vascular disease restricts these responses. This implicit paradox is here considered forthrightly. Examination of these relationships in symptomatic patients requires care and caution, because of the potential and occasionally real risks entailed. Accordingly, indirect assessment, particularly by noninvasive techniques, becomes increasingly important to detecting and monitoring - for the safety of the patients studied - the evidence of myocardial ischemia and impairment of left ventricular function under stress. Adequate assessment requires well-designed experimental studies to quantify true relationships and to measure the limits of functional capacity and the mechanisms of its impairment. Further more, alterations can be induced by therapy, whether this be pharmacological, medical or surgical, or achieved by physical reconditioning through exercise training. Not only is the cardiovascular system impaired by discrete and diffuse vascular lesions at central sites, but the degree of impairment is dynamic rather than static.
