EDUCATIONAL LIBRARY

WHITEPAPERS & GUIDES

We’re passionate about keeping cardiopulmonary providers up-to-date with industry information and inspiration. In addition to our Pulse Newsletter for relevant news topics, you can request a free download of any of our whitepapers and guides.

HEART FAILURE EXERCISE GUIDELINES

Cardiac Rehab and Secondary Prevention programs are becoming increasingly involved in the comprehensive care of patients with heart failure. This one-page guide utilizes the FITT Principle to prescribe a safe and beneficial exercise training program in order to achieve optimal outcomes for patients with heart failure.

WHITEPAPER: CARDIAC REHABILITATION FOR THE PATIENT WITH CHRONIC HEART FAILURE | By: DR. CARL N. KING

Chronic Heart Failure is the most common cause of hospitalization for CMS patients and it is the only cardiovascular diagnosis that is increasing in prevalence. As the US population ages, the trend will continue through 2029. This paper is written to assist cardiac rehabilitation professionals by explaining the role of cardiac rehabilitation programs in treating patients with Chronic Heart Failure.

GUIDE: TRACKING AND IMPROVING CARDIAC REHAB PERFORMANCE

Tracking and measuring patient outcomes continues to play an increasingly important role in cardiopulmonary rehab certification, quality measurement and insurance reimbursements. However, it can be difficult for programs to know how to begin tracking and where to focus improvement efforts. We’ve created this guide to help programs that are beginning to integrate outcomes tracking into their clinical documentation process. For programs that already track outcomes, we hope this guide will provide ideas from improving and expanding current efforts.

WHITEPAPER: THE MEASUREMENT OF BLOOD PRESSURE IN A CARDIAC REHABILITATION SETTING | By: DR. CARL N. KING

Blood pressure (BP), both systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP), is the most variable physiological measurement that we routinely check in cardiac rehabilitation. This paper is written to assist cardiac rehabilitation professionals to better determine when and where a BP might be most appropriate. As is the case with all individualized treatment plans, patient status (including history and physical exam by the referring physician) as well as the results from the exercise assessment (prior to entering cardiac rehabilitation) must be considered.

WHITEPAPER: THE INDIVIDUALIZED EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION IN CARDIAC REHABILITATION | By: DR. CARL N. KING

Development of an individualized, personalized exercise prescription is the cornerstone of comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation. An exercise assessment must precede the implementation of an exercise program for all cardiac patients who are enrolling in a cardiac rehabilitation program. This paper is written to assist cardiac rehabilitation professionals by explaining how functional exercise tests can be used to develop a better cardiac rehabilitation program.

WHITEPAPER: CHANGES IN OXYGEN UPTAKE IN WOMEN CARDIAC REHABILITATION PATIENTS AS MEASURED BY A SELF-PACED CYCLE ERGOMETER TEST; THE KING 6-MINUTE CYCLE TEST | By: DR. CARL N. KING

The need to measure functional capacity and write an individualized exercise prescription in cardiac rehabilitation patients prior to beginning a Cardiac Rehabilitation Program has been grossly underutilized over the last decade. A simple, but valid and reliable test, might make this evaluation and prescription possible. The approved King 6-Minute Cycle Test (6 MC) was previously validated and the reliability established when compared to the American Thoracic Society (ATS) 6-Minute Walk Test.
