This unit of study will introduce students to the knowledge, skills and clinical decision making processes necessary for effective assessment and treatment of patients across the age spectrum with acute and chronic respiratory and cardiac dysfunction. In particular, students will evaluate the patho-physiological and functional consequences of surgery (abdominal, thoracic and cardiac); infective, inflammatory; restrictive; and obstructive pulmonary disorders, and coronary artery disease. Additionally, this unit will develop the student's knowledge of exercise and aims to apply the principles of exercise testing, prescription and training to patients who have cardiac and pulmonary limitations and other co-morbidities to exercise. Students will learn the practical skills and develop treatment strategies to effectively manage respiratory problems.
