Stay on top of the latest advances in the emerging field of clinical exercise physiology. Here is the most comprehensive and up-to-date book available for new and veteran clinical exercise physiologists and those preparing for the new ACSM Clinical Exercise Physiology Registry Examination.
Edited by respected scholars in the field, Clinical Exercise Physiology is the most expansive resource available in the field and provides the latest information on the key practice and disease areas of clinical exercise physiology, including endocrinology, the metabolic system, the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, oncology, the immune system, bone and joints, and the neuromuscular system. This text also covers the important issues for clinical exercise physiologists to understand about the special populations of children, the elderly, and female athletes.
The easy-to-navigate book is organized into eight parts. Part I covers the fundamentals of clinical exercise physiology. Parts II through VIII describe in detail 24 disease states and conditions that clinical exercise physiologists routinely encounter in their work; these chapters also provide guidance for the expert care of these populations.
The logical order of the chapters makes key information easy to find. 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 specific to the condition.
The book contains numerous features that will enhance your understanding of the material:
- Each chapter includes a glossary and reference list.
- Case studies and discussion questions appear throughout the text to highlight important concepts.
- Practical applications boxes include tips on client–clinician interaction, a literature review, and a summary of exercise prescription.
Whether you use it as a text, study guide, or professional reference, Clinical Exercise Physiology is the definitive resource on the use of exercise training for the prevention and treatment of clinical diseases and disorders.

Jonathan Ehrman, PhD, is associate director of preventive cardiology at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. He has a 17-year background in clinical exercise physiology. He is certified as an ACSM exercise specialist and program director.
Dr. Ehrman has written numerous manuscripts and abstracts, and he edits a section in the journal Clinical Exercise Physiology. He is an American College of Sports Medicine fellow and a member of its certification committee. Dr. Ehrman earned his PhD in clinical exercise physiology from Ohio State University.
Paul Gordon, PhD, is an ACSM-certified exercise specialist who teaches graduate clinical exercise physiology courses in the School of Medicine at West Virginia University. He has directed several cardiopulmonary rehabilitation programs and served as an examiner and coordinator for the ACSM exercise specialist certification.
Dr. Gordon is an American College of Sports Medicine fellow. He earned his PhD in exercise physiology from the University of Pittsburgh.
Paul Visich, PhD, has been a clinical exercise professor for 10 years and currently teaches at Central Michigan University. He worked eight years in a clinical setting that included cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation and primary disease prevention.
Dr. Gordon is chair of the Professional Education Committee of the American College of Sports Medicine. He earned a PhD in exercise physiology and an MPH in epidemiology from the University of Pittsburgh.
Steven Keteyian, PhD, has more than 20 years of experience working as a clinical exercise physiologist. He is program director of preventive cardiology at the Henry Ford Heart and Vascular Institute.
Dr. Keteyian is an American College of Sports Medicine fellow and author of two college textbooks. He earned his PhD from Wayne State University.
"Drs. Ehrman, Gordon, Visich and Keteyian, four nationally recognized experts in exercise science and its' clinical applications, have edited a seminal text that is lucidly and authoritatively written by a prestigious group of scientists, clinicians, researchers, and teachers who are authorities in their respective fields.
This attractive hardcover volume is more than an expansion of the information covered in previous texts; it provides a virtual pharmacopoeia of exercise guidelines, geared especially to upper level undergraduates and graduate students, in the evaluation and management of a broad spectrum of patients. Part I covers the principles of clinical exercise physiology, whereas Parts II through VIII describe in detail 24 disease states and/or co-morbid conditions that clinical exercise physiologists routinely encounter.
Within each chapter, the authors address the pathology of disease, treatment options, the salutary effects (and limitations) of exercise training, and provide one or two case studies. Numerous tables, figures, and ""practical applications boxes"" serve to highlight and complement salient points in the text. Moreover, the index is comprehensive, and the references cited in each chapter are current.
I highly recommend this outstanding text to those who desire a state-of-the-art reference on the use of exercise training for the prevention and treatment of clinical diseases and disorders.""

""One of the most striking features of the text is the way in which it takes on the responsibility of being a true guidebook for the relatively young profession. For the first time under one cover we begin to see a clear delineation of the role of the clinical exercise physiologist.
There are many features of this book that make it an excellent choice as a course book or certification study guide. First is the glossary of terms, which can be found at the conclusion of each chapter, which can be used as a quick review of pathophysiology. Additionally, each chapter also contains a case study, which ties the major concepts of the chapter together and allows the student to problem solve. Extensive reference sections include both classic and contemporary research articles that underpin all the exercise recommendations, and give more in-depth coverage of the diseases that are covered.
Professionals working in the field will find this text to be essential to their practice, especially if they work with a variety of patients. Being so comprehensive in scope and aimed toward professionalization, Clinical Exercise Physiology is sure to be the classic reference in the field for years to come.""
