ATTENTION PTs/PTAs, SLPs and OTs/COTAs
Learn the benefits of specific therapy interventions for your chronic heart failure patients
The lecture will be presented by Ken Micko, PT, Accelerated Care Plus
This two hour intermediate level course for PTs/ PTAs and OTs/COTAs provides instruction on the evidence regarding the clinical benefits of electrical stimulation, aerobic exercise, and resistive exercise to treat patients with chronic heart failure. This course is part of a series of Accelerated Clinical Practice courses. Through a combination of small class size and lab activities, this course provides the individual attention necessary for clinicians to understand the unique, potential clinical benefits provided by specific therapy interventions.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Recognize the causes, manifestations, and incidences of chronic heart failure.
• Summarize the research involving the application of neuromuscular electrical stimulation to major muscle groups of those with chronic heart failure.
• Realize the physiological benefits of aerobic exercise and specific guidelines for those with chronic heart failure.
• Recognize the safety of, and the need for, resistive exercise for those with chronic heart failure and specific resistive exercise recommendations for this population.
