More About This Title Exercise Leadership in Cardiac Rehabilitation - An Evidence-Based Approach
"...provides a virtual pharmacopoeia of exercise guidelines for patients with cardiovascular disease, with specific reference to exercise prescription, risk stratification, exercise physiology, monitoring techniques, and leadership and organizational skills. The authors represent a prestigious group of scientists, clinicians, researchers, and teachers, who are authorities in their respective fields. Clearly, the contributors have painstakingly worked to summarize, in a clear and concise manner, the latest research findings in each area, highlighting patient care and related applications. A "must-read" for clinicians in the field of cardiac rehabilitation. I highly recommend this extraordinary text !"
