Description

Thousands of Americans suffer from cardiopulmonary related diagnoses which account for the majority of hospitalizations throughout the U.S. This comprehensive recording will offer valuable, cutting edge clinical information and explore the latest evidence-based interventions to improve functional mobility, strength, independence, and achieve desired outcomes in regards to the cardiopulmonary patient.

Designed for all practice levels, this interactive course will provide you with an updated knowledge base for making appropriate decisions within the cardiac ICU and acute care environments, implement assessment and treatment tools, integrate existing treatment plans with progression into the plan of care, and adjust or accommodate treatment interventions across the hospital stay through transition to discharge.

This is a must-see for anyone in healthcare who works with cardiopulmonary patients in any practice setting!
