This unit aims to develop the clinical decision making processes, knowledge and skills necessary for effective assessment and treatment of patients with disorders of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Students will evaluate the pathophysiology and functional consequences of respiratory disorders (such as airflow limitation; inflammatory and infective conditions) on pulmonary function. Students will become familiar with the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease and ischaemic heart disease. They will examine management strategies for the patient following cardiothoracic surgery; abdominal and vascular surgery. The role of exercise and rehabilitation in the management of these conditions will also be examined.
This unit is co-taught with unit 6447 Cardiothoracic Interventions 1 PG.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be:
1. Competent in assessment and interpretation, planning, implementation and evaluation of intervention skills required for the practice of physiotherapy in disorders of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems;
2. Able to integrate these competencies into clinical physiotherapy practice; and
3. Able to demonstrate a sound knowledge in primary and secondary prevention strategies for patients with disorders of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems.
