Package contains the following courses:
- Pulmonary Function Testing PART I: This course describes the basics of a program, including admission and eligibility criteria, operating processes, post-admission activities, problems and program components. It is designed to be the first in a series of three courses pertaining to pulmonary rehabilitation. The course is primarily intended for the health care professional managing and/or staffing a pulmonary rehab program – but may also be useful for other professionals who have tangential relationships with a rehab program, such as the physical therapist, physician, dietician, physical therapist, hospital administrator, nurse, etc.
- Pulmonary Function Testing PART 2: Pulmonary function testing (PFT’s) is one of the most widely prescribed diagnostic tools used by physicians to determine general and specific lung function. Part 1 in this series of courses discussed:
- Lung Volumes
- Flow Volume Loops
But beyond basic spirometry, additional testing may be required to further evaluate lung function. This course is designed to assist the health care practitioner with a basic understanding of the indications, testing processes and clinical significance of residual Volume (RV), Functional Residual Capacity (FRC) and airway resistance determinations.
- Exercise Induced Brochoconstriction: Exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB) is a common problem in physically active persons and is most commonly found in persons who participate in endurance sports and sports that require high minute ventilation. EIB is defined as transient, reversible bronchoconstriction that happens during or after strenuous exercise, and can occur in persons with or without underlying asthma. This course discusses the disease state, prevalence, diagnostic techniques and treatment, and prevention modalities.
