By examining the relationship between exercise and chronic disease, this text looks at clinical aspects of exercise physiology. It specifically addresses the knowledge, skills, and abilities listed by the ACSM for both the Exercise Specialist and the Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist exams. With discussion of 23 conditions that clinical exercise physiologists routinely encounter in their work, the text provides students and professionals with fundamental knowledge of disease-specific pathology and treatment guidelines, while also guiding readers through the physical exercise physiology associated with exercise testing and training of patients with chronic diseases. Chapters are grouped in sections on disorders and special populations. Each chapter covers the scope of the condition, its physiology, pathophysiology, and treatment, clinical considerations, and exercise prescriptions. This edition contains four new chapters on depression and exercise, metabolic syndrome, cerebral palsy, and stroke. Also new to this edition is a web site for instructors. B&w illustrations and a few medical images are included. Ehrman is associate program director of preventive cardiology and director of the weight management program at Henry Ford Hospital.
