Reflecting the unsurpassed quality and excellence synonymous with the American College of Sports Medicine, ACSM's Clinical Exercise Physiology, second edition, provides an evidence-based approach to exercise as intervention for more than 35 conditions commonly encountered in practice -- from a host of cardiovascular disorders to immunological/hematological disorders.

Condition chapters are logically organized by disease types and divided into sections that cover specific conditions from a pathological and etiological perspective, with additional coverage of important considerations and foundational elements -- such as screening, pharmacology, and electrocardiography -- ensuring a complete view of clinical exercise physiology.

Fully aligned with ACSM's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription, 11th Edition, and updated throughout with new content and learning tools, this second edition provides total support for success in advanced undergraduate or graduate clinical exercise physiology courses, as well as the ACSM's Clinical Exercise Physiology certification exam.

  • UPDATED Expanded coverage of women's health familiarizes students with the latest clinical exercise physiology approaches to pregnancy and menopause.

  • NEW FITT Tables leverage the Frequency, Intensity, Time, and Type principle to reinforce effective approaches to exercise prescription in clinical settings.

  • UPDATED Case Studies -- including several new to this edition -- enable students to apply their understanding to realistic clinical scenarios.

  • NEW Dynamic ECG animations provide critical practice viewing and interpreting results.
