Clinical Exercise Physiology
Edition 2nd edition
OverviewThis new edition provides a comprehensive look at the clinical aspects of exercise physiology by thoroughly examining the relationship between exercise and chronic disease. Updated and revised, this edition reflects important changes that have occurred in the field and provides professionals and students with fundamental knowledge of disease-specific pathology and treatment guidelines while also guiding readers through the clinical exercise physiology associated with exercise testing and training of patients with a chronic disease.Presented in this book are re-organised 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 discuss 23 disease states and conditions that clinical exercise physiologists encounter in their work and provide guidance for the expert care of the populations discussed.
