Synopses & Reviews
Cardiac rehabilitation can be extremely complex art. In Cardiac Rehabilitation, expert authors provide state-of-the-art information that serves as a manual to the multidisciplinary nature of cardiac rehabilitation in the current era, the current state of cardiac rehabilitation, and the issues facing current CR programs. Covering the major components of a CR program, including medical therapy, exercise, nutrition, and behavioral therapy, from referral to testing to individualizing the program for the participants, the volume is a thorough, vital guide to this important field. Comprehensive and substantial, Cardiac Rehabilitiation will aid cardiologists and internal specialists greatly in saving the lives of heart patients across the globe.
Book News Annotation:
Pointing those wishing an overview of the history and medical literature supporting the medical practice of cardiac rehabilitation elsewhere, Kraus (cardiac rehabilitation, Duke U. Medical Center) and Keteyian (preventive cardiology, Henry Ford Hospital) instead aim to provide practical guidance on the field to health personnel newly introduced to the specialty or established cardiologists aiming to begin or assume control of a cardiac rehabilitation program. Following the introduction, the volume's 26 chapters discuss such topics as nutrition, exercise prescription, weight management, assessment and management of depression, stress management, smoking cessation, graded exercise testing, lipid-lowering therapy, diabetes and hypertension, comorbidities, the role of the physician-medical director, assessment and treatment of risk in the clinic setting, staffing, and reimbursement issues.
