ASSESSMENT & EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION FOR CARDIORESPIRATORY & METABOLIC DYSFUNCTION
Credit points: 15
In this subject you will utilise online platforms along with face-to-face theoretical and practical sessions to analyse the pathophysiology of cardiovascular, pulmonary and metabolic conditions. Pathophysiological knowledge will be applied to perform appropriate assessments and examinations of individuals, before interpreting the information and using this to design and prescribe effective clinical exercise interventions. Exercise interventions will be prescribed with knowledge and appreciation of expected physiological responses, supervised to ensure safety and monitored for adverse responses.
