Synopsis:

Clinical Skills for Exercise Science is an accessible and authoritative ‘how to’ guide to laboratory and clinical procedures in exercise physiology. Designed for students and practitioners working in health, medicine and exercise science, the book offers clear, practical advice on how to implement clinical skills with confidence, including authoritative guides to measurement and analysis.

The book introduces the full range of key skills and procedures such as:

  • 'soft skills', including history taking and communication with patients and clients
  • basic physical examination
  • understanding electrocardiography
  • venepuncture and venous cannulation
  • interpretation of blood test results, blood gas samples and lung function tests
  • understanding the chest x-ray
  • emergency procedures and resuscitation.

Clinical Skills for Exercise Science is an invaluable practical reference for all sport and exercise students and all professionals involved with patients and clients in a health, clinical or medical setting, including nurses, occupational therapists and physiotherapists.
