Now in its fourth edition, Physiotherapy in Respiratory and Cardiac Care is an essential resource on the rationale and practicalities of physiotherapy for people with respiratory and cardiac disorders. Providing a clear, problem-solving approach, the book relates the physiology of the cardiorespiratory system to practice. Cardiac and paediatric physiotherapy have been expanded for the new edition, which is research-based throughout. The pathophysiology of respiratory and cardiac disorders is first examined, then linked to accurate patient assessment. The main part of the book then applies a logical approach to physiotherapy management, with adaptations for different groups of people. The text has been thoroughly updated. The analytic approach encourages students and practitioners to critically appraise the research base, use logical reasoning, and then evaluate and reflect on their practice.
