Join prominent national and international exercise experts as they guide you through didactic, simulation, small group, and hands-on sessions about cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). Faculty will discuss high-level interpretive strategies you can use to better support your exercise laboratory, as well as exercise training program design, exercise testing evidence-based data, exercise prescriptions, rehabilitation, sports medicine, CPET guidelines, and current controversies in CPET.
Gain practical experience with:
- Necessary technical aspects of the CPET equipment
- The skills required for performing CPET, including calibration, maneuvers, testing, and biologic controls
- Data interpretation, including report creation and how to make informed CPET study recommendations
Prior to attending, you will receive materials that form the cognitive base of the course. You are expected to become familiar with the content prior to the course start in order to reduce the need for lectures, so the focus can be on hands-on, interactive training.
Pulmonary physicians; pulmonary function testing and cardiology laboratory directors; advanced practice providers; family medicine, critical care, and pulmonary rehabilitation providers; pulmonary fellows; internists; hospitalists; exercise physiologists; CPET laboratory medical directors; and cardiologists are encouraged to attend.
