The APTA states, “The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) advocates for prevention, wellness, fitness, health promotion, and management of disease and disability (p.1).” The Physical Therapy profession has done numerous studies on exercise and congestive heart failure and has found that it greatly benefits these patients as long as we are monitoring carefully. The American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, European Society of Cardiology, and Canadian Cardiovascular Society advise medically stable HF patients engage in aerobic and resistance training. Patients that have participated in a rehabilitation program have shown significant improvements in quality of life and functional capacity. The Clinical Practice Guidelines for Cardiac Rehabilitation guidelines support the beneficial effect of exercise training on exercise tolerance for patients with heart disease (physical rehab book, p. 561).
“Teach the patient and family the symptoms of infection that should be promptly reported to a primary medical caregiver” (Ackley & Ladwig, 2011, pg. 495). Electrolyte balance should be watch closely in a patient with acute renal failure.
