The first and only text focused on CPRs for PT practice!
This book offers the first comprehensive look at CPRs as they relate to PT practice. Its format is arranged so that the pertinent information is readily available to influence clinical decision making while also providing sufficient depth. CPR development level is provided, a quality assessment score is listed as well as a clinical bottom line paragraph to provide the reader with a summative statement.
The predictor variables are well described and include multiple color pictures for clarity of explanation and ease of reproduction. To further assist the reader in their utilization of clinical prediction rules the authors have provided a decision making algorithm as well as multiple case studies demonstrating the inclusion of such rules into an evidence-based clinical scenario. CPRs are becoming more frequent in the PT literature and this book provides students and clinicians with a strong working knowledge of the rules most pertinent to PT practice.
