Obesity is a multifaceted disorder with concomitant effects on the cardiovascular, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, endocrine, and psychosocial systems. Obesity is associated with major causes of death and disability, and these adverse effects are observed throughout the life course—with the highest prevalence of obesity-related conditions occurring in middle-aged and older adults. The need for multidisciplinary intervention programs is clear; however, the assessment of the overweight/obese patient is less apparent, and the choice of outcome measures is even less evident. Cardio-metabolic measures, such as waist circumference, fasting blood glucose, blood pressure, and submaximal exercise testing are suitable for many in this population and may be predictive of future cardiovascular disease. The speaker will describe the epidemiology, risk factors, pathology, assessment, outcome measures, and physiologic biomarkers associated with obese patients across the lifespan. Additionally, the development, standardization, and sustainability of model programs will be described. The speaker will discuss case studies of children, adolescents, adults, and geriatric patients and group discussion will be facilitated to enhance the learning experience. Finally, the speaker will present research topics in obesity across the lifespan that provide evidence to support comprehensive obesity-rehabilitation paradigms.

Patients suffering complex cardiovascular and pulmonary disorders benefit from early mobilization and exercise training. Physical therapists who examine and plan interventions for these patients must consider the latest literature, as well as the pathophysiology of the disorder(s) to develop a reasoned clinical approach. The intervention should safely and effectively progress and maximize the patient’s activity tolerance, functional mobility, and independence. The speaker will use both lecture and small-group discussion to provide a comprehensive review of the pertinent literature, and examination and intervention techniques of selected diagnoses from across the practice spectrum. This practical exploration will address the clinical reasoning used for select diagnoses and medical tests and procedures, which often creates uncertainty in physical therapists. While this can be a great preparatory course for individuals considering taking the Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Board Certification Examination, it is intended as an opportunity for all clinicians seeking to advance their skills with patients presenting with complex cardiovascular and pulmonary disorders.

Chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is one cause of clinically debilitating fatigue. Its features have been related to Gulf War syndrome and post-9/11 syndrome. CFS/ME may present a spectrum of symptoms, providing multiple reasons for entry to physical therapy. Physical therapists are in a unique position to identify CFS/ME and to direct appropriate management through both physical therapist interventions and referral to other health care providers. Over the past 2 years, an international working group of the International Association for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (IACFS/ME) has developed a document that describes current clinical best practices for the diagnosis, medical and psychological management, and physical rehabilitation for people with CFS/ME.
This session will provide leading-edge information about physical therapy management of patients with CFS/ME from a group of recognized clinicians and researchers, including participants of the guideline development committee. In this session, the speakers will discuss the development of the IACFS/ME Primer for Clinical Practitioners; summarize the clinical features and patho-etiology of CFS/ME with respect to optimal identification, differential diagnosis, and clinical management by physical therapists; discuss current medical and psychological management for people with CFS/ME; and describe current concepts in physical rehabilitation for people with CFS/ME.

As evidenced by APTA’s Vision 2020 Statement, practitioners need access to and the ability to openly discuss advances in practice and concepts as they apply to the practice of cardiovascular and pulmonary physical therapy. Lack of accessibility, clinical or personal time, and/or knowledge of article synopsis can hinder this process that is progressing every month, many journals over. This course will provide a review of the cardiovascular and pulmonary literature published within the past 2 years. This review is meant to provide participants with a broad overview of research and will not be specific to any cardiovascular or pulmonary health condition. The speakers will present and give his interpretation of each study which is then open to discussion by all the participants.

The World Health Organization's Framework for Action on Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice calls for the preparation of a collaborative-ready workforce to meet global health needs, including the management of chronic health conditions. While mechanisms that shape interprofessional education and collaborative practice vary among health systems, effective teamwork is a common ingredient for quality care. This presentation will focus on preparing physical therapists to serve as effective team members and strategies for incorporating team-based competencies into professional and postprofessional education programs.

This course will cover teaching strategies for cardiopulmonary topics to increase student engagement and improve student learning outcomes. The presenters will facilitate a discussion of low-tech interventions to high-tech interventions for teaching cardiopulmonary physical therapy. Methods such as web-based modules, human patient simulation, virtual technologies, illustrative lab techniques, and interactive discussion techniques will be discussed as possible interventions for teaching cardiopulmonary physical therapy. Outcomes of different instructional methods will be discussed.

APTA and the Cardiopulmonary and Pulmonary Section frequently receive questions regarding the evidence, legality, and proper methods for physical therapists’ administration and titration of supplemental oxygen. To address these questions, a task force was developed to examine the evidence, evaluate state practice acts and other policies and legislation related to the physical therapist's role in oxygen delivery, and provide recommendations to assist therapists in decision making. Evidence surrounding the use of supplemental oxygen in various patient populations and related legislative issues were presented at CSM in 2011. This follow-up presentation aims to briefly summarize that information as a background for the presentation of an algorithm that was developed by the task force to assist physical therapists in decision making regarding the delivery of supplemental oxygen. The algorithm will be presented along with the methods used to develop it and critically evaluate its potential usefulness and applicability for the physical therapist across practice settings.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is not only a lung disease occurring in childhood. The multisytemic nature of this lifelong disease provides opportunities for PTs with a variety of expertise to be involved. Recently, the CF Foundation began a program pairing PTs with limited experience managing this population with PT mentors based on the most recent scope of practice document describing physical therapy for all patients with CF. This presentation—by the authors of that document and other PTs experienced with this population—will discuss the complex disease of CF, its medical treatment, and how PTs’ expertise in optimizing breathing and exercise can help the care team improve the lives of individuals with CF across ages and care settings.

Physical therapists have become increasingly involved in the rehabilitation of patients who receive solid organ transplants. Organ transplant therapy may include heart, lung, liver, kidney, pancreas, bowel, and multi-organ transplantations. The spectrum spans from preoperative care and preparation to outpatient rehabilitation and preparation for discharge. This workshop will outline the evaluation and treatment protocols used to prepare patients for organ transplantation, postsurgical hospitalization and mobilization, and outpatient rehabilitation to achieve complete independence.
