NDPT 7151: Clinical Physiology II: Exercise Physiology (4)

Lecture: 2, Lab: 4, Other: 0

This course is designed to assist the student to understand the physiological processes that underlie the role and effects of exercise as it relates to health, pathology, culture, age, gender, and restoration of function. Emphasis is placed on muscle cell physiology, cardiovascular responses, and oxygen transport in response to changes in metabolic demand, exercise training, and detraining. Principles of therapeutic exercise, using a case study and lab approach, will provide students with foundational knowledge for safe implementation of a variety of general exercise programs.
