Clinical Exercise Physiology

Dit vak wordt in het Engels aangeboden. Omschrijvingen kunnen daardoor mogelijk alleen in het Engels worden weergegeven.

Doel vak

To provide the student with the fundamental knowledge of clinical
exercise physiology as a variant of normal exercise physiology, which
will enable the student to apply this knowledge in preventive and
rehabilitative exercise programs.

Inhoud vak

Basic didactic information and laboratory experiences of the effect of
pathophysiologic conditions on human energy metabolism and health. The
focus will be on organ systems and their linkage to ATP generating
pathways and on how this influences skeletal muscle performance. The
application is to the use of exercise both diagnostically and as a
therapeutic tool. After this course the student will have the
fundamental knowledge and skills to use exercise in different patient
populations, such as
patients with cardiopulmonary/metabolic disease and to work
cooperatively with health care providers.
