NDPT 7253: Clinical Pharmacology & Diagnostics IV: Neuromuscular (1)
Lecture: 1, Lab: 0, Other: 0
This course includes the pertinent clinical pharmacology and diagnostic medical tests for patients with neuromuscular dysfunction. Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics will emphasize the indications and contraindications of various drugs relative to their effect on diagnosis, prognosis, and interventions in physical therapy. Additionally, physiological process will be studied with particular emphasis on changes that occur secondary to variables such as age, environment, race, and gender. Diagnostic tests, such as lab values, Electro-diagnostic testings,CT/PET scans, MRI, etc. will be also be explored in relation to physical therapy diagnosis for patient with neuromuscular dysfunction. This course is intended to accompany the Neuromuscular Clinical problem series.
