SP5103 - Clinical Exercise Physiology 1
|Student Contribution Band:
||Sch Public Health,Trop Medicine&Rehabilitation Sc (pre 2015)
The subject addresses the scope of practice and professional roles and responsibilities
of the exercise physiologist; the pathophysiological basis of cardiopulmonary, metabolic
and renal conditions; and the assessment, diagnostic, medical and exercise-based interventions
associated with the treatment and prevention of cardiopulmonary, metabolic and renal
conditions and of complex case management. The subject examines the safety aspects
of exercise for cardiopulmonary and metabolic conditions with emphasis on exercise
capacity limitations; knowledge of, identification of and management of exercise contraindications
and adverse signs and symptoms; risk factor stratification and monitoring; medication
effects on exercise, behaviour changes and client communication. The subject also
encompasses the knowledge and practical application of designing, interpreting and
facilitating assessments and clinical exercise interventions for cardiopulmonary,
metabolic and renal conditions.
- Demonstrated ability to use and interpret results collected from spirometers, blood
tests, and blood pressure, heart rate, ECG and oxygen saturation monitors;
- Demonstrated knowledge of the scope of practice and professional roles and responsibilities
of the exercise physiologist, including behaviour changes and client communication;
- Demonstrated knowledge of the pathophysiological basis; identification and diagnosis,
treatment and functional limitations and safety considerations associated with cardiopulmonary,
metabolic and renal conditions;
- Demonstrated ability to assess limitations; recognize adverse reactions; and prescribe
and facilitate exercise associated with cardiopulmonary, metabolic and renal conditions
and with complex cases.
