Basics of Cardiopulmonary Assessment


Basics of Cardiopulmonary Assessment is an exercise test used to analyze both diagnostic and prognostic assessments. It evaluates both submaximal and peak exercise responses involving the pulmonary, cardiovascular, hematopoietic, neuropsychological, and skeletal muscle systems. This book is intended to assess undiagnosed exercise intolerance and exercise-related symptoms and is used to assess exercise performance, functional capacity, and impairment. The patient engages in the activity (walking or jogging) for a certain amount of time and at a set intensity level on a Treadmill or a Bicycle ergometer. This exercise test may be used as a training tool for athletes as well as for the care of patients who have had heart and lung operations, COPD, unexplained dyspnea, cardio and respiratory disorders, and lung and heart procedures. Patients in CPET undertake a variety of exercise routines across a spectrum of intensity levels. According to the book the examination of the cardiovascular system includes a comprehensive analysis of the patient’s medical history in addition to a careful analysis of the patient’s heart and peripheral vessels. The nursing process requires the incorporation of both subjective and objective data to uncover indicators of possible dysfunction. The causes of seemingly innocuous signs and symptoms including tiredness, tummy trouble, and swelling of the legs are not always clear. Therefore, nurses must be diligent in gathering all relevant information so that they may use their best clinical judgment while caring for patients
