Emphasis is placed on examining the clinical pathophysiology associated with prevalent cardiovascular, respiratory, metabolic, and musculoskeletal disorders as well as pregnancy, along with their risk factors for secondary disease and their influence on exercise tolerance and functional status. Furthermore, fundamental concepts in exercise testing and programming to enhance physical health and functional capacity in persons with chronic health conditions are addressed.
