And the neuromuscular system. This second edition also features an online ancillary package, allowing instructors to more effectively convey the concepts presented in the text and prepare students for careers in the field. Clinical Exercise Physiology, Second Edition, is easy to navigate-the logical order of the chapters makes key information easy to find. 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. Each chapter covers the scope of the condition; its physiology and pathophysiology and treatment options; clinical considerations, including the administration of a graded exercise test; and exercise prescription. The text also details how clinical exercise physiologists can most effectively address issues facing special populations, including children, the elderly, and female athletes. Clinical Exercise Physiology, Second Edition, is the definitive, Clinical Exercise Physiology, Second 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 second edition reflects important changes that have occurred in the field since the first edition was published. It will provide 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. The second edition of Clinical Exercise Physiology builds on information presented in the previous edition 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,, Disease Chapter 22.
