NDPT 7243: Clinical Pharmacology & Diagnostics III: Integumentary (1)
Lecture: 2, Lab: 0, Other: 0
This course includes the pertinent clinical pharmacology and diagnostic medical tests for patients with integumentary 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, ABI, Doppler, Ultrasound, etc. will be also be explored in relation to physical therapy diagnosis in a patient with integumentary dysfunction. This course is intended to accompany the Integumentary Clinical Problems course.
