#7444 Pathophysiology: Considerations for health care professionals working with patients with common co-morbidities
This course will cover recent updates in pathophysiology as well as review salient facts to keep in mind during the treatment of patients with many common conditions.
Areas covered will include: the inflammatory process, updates in understanding and treating cardiovascular, endocrine and neurologic disorders, discussion of the microbiome and its effect on health. The course will also touch on the new understanding of what happens during sleep and why sleep is so important for our patients.
The course will include a review of numbers to know: when does a pt require supplemental oxygen, and when is their oxygen level low enough to be a medical emergency? At what level of hemoglobin should therapy be held? What comorbidities (beside osteoporosis) that indicate a pt should not get joint mobilization due to a high risk of fx? What glucose level is normal for a diabetic, and OK to continue with therapy? What to do if a diabetic pt is symptomatic during a treatment and you have no way to test their glucose level. What is a current trend in the treatment of diabetes could cause problems for your patient during a session? (Intermediate Level)
