This book is designed for the physician, exercise physiologist, or administrator who is designing and setting up cardiac rehabilitation programs in the hospital and community. The three authors—one a cardiologist (Dr. Froelicher) and the other two, exercise physiologists—are highly regarded authorities with extensive experience. The program structure for the physical activity component of the three phases of cardiac rehabilitation is covered in great detail: inpatient, convalescent outpatient, and more intensive exercise programs in community facilities.
There is much practical information on administrative concerns and organizational procedures, staffing requirements, finances, faculty requirements and designs, equipment needs, data processing, and community involvement.
