Pulmonary Rehabilitation (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Pulmonary Rehabilitation is a multi-volume, multi-disciplinary handbook of rehabilitation sciences that provides a single vehicle for the many fields that converge in rehabilitation. These fields each have an independent literature and language that does not cover the practice of related disciplines. This results in a fractured rather than holistic understanding of what is necessary for the science of returning the impaired to optimized function. This project provides a unified platform for the cross-disciplinary presentation of ideas in rehabilitation sciences, thereby creating a resource for practitioners and researchers in all disciples associated with rehabilitation applications.

The book is 'one stop shop' of accurate, up to date and clinically applicable material in the field of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR). It covers how to perform PR, the rationale for performing PR, and the need to measure outcomes. This book spans and integrates all fields of rehabilitation science, from basic scientists to clinicians and technologists.
