Clinical Sciences: Course Outline

Course code: CPTCS-752

Course Description

This course includes a study of anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, and lymphatic systems and pathological changes of the systems and function, including diagnostic tests and measurements. This course discuss relevant testes and measures for determining impairment and differentiating the diagnosis based on the specificity and sensitivity of the assessment instruments as related to patients with cardiovascular, pulmonary, and lymphatic systems disorders.
