Upon completion of this module you will be able to:
LO1: Analyse the reasons for exercise testing disease and special populations and relate exercise capacity to mortality and disease rates.
LO2: Critically evaluate exercise testing protocols dependent upon the condition an individual presents themselves with, with focus on submaximal and maximal exercise testing and medication.
LO3: Critically evaluate the risks when testing and benefits to determine exercise capacity.
LO4: Interpret cardiorespiratory exercise test results and make judgements relating results to physiology and pathophysiology of the condition.
LO5: Apply knowledge of the physiology and pathophysiology of a condition to devise an exercise training programme with the aim of improving the condition and health of an individual.
