Book Description

Exercise and Disease Management is designed to help managed care physicians, their patients, other health care professionals, and interested readers integrate current exercise guidelines into their practices. This extraordinary book is accompanied by a series of 11 workbooks, each one for a chronic disease, designed specifically for physicians to give to their patients. These workbooks make it convenient for physicians to prescribe physical activity to their patients in a ready-to-use format. Each book chapter and workbook contains a section on the background, medical management, and exercise guidelines, accompanied by self-care instructions for patients, encouraging them to take a proactive role in their health and disease management.

New and Updated in the Second Edition:

  • A ready-to-use "Exercise Prescription Page," which follows each chapter on a specific disease, enables health care professionals, especially physicians in managed care, to prescribe exercise quickly to clients with specific medical conditions
  • The "Rate Pressure Product" method for prescribing exercise helps health care providers individualize exercise prescriptions for patients with heart disease by accounting for the amount of oxygen the heart uses
  • Individual companion workbooks on CD provide patient health maintenance information about diabetes, AIDS, obesity, golden years (age 65 and older), heart, kidney, peripheral arterial, and lung disease. Workbooks for physical inactivity, osteoporosis, arthritis and high blood pressure also are included on the CD
  • Common question-and-answer sections that help patients understand the diseases from which they suffer and encourages them to take responsibility for their health

Exercise and Disease Management, Second Edition consolidates the current knowledge base on exercise and chronic disease, providing a ready-made format for health care providers to use when prescribing exercise programs for their clients. Using guidelines set forth by the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation, this book helps physicians, other health care providers, and health enthusiasts respond to the challenge to keep patients healthier and active and reduce recurrent hospitalizations and health care costs.

Biography

Brian C. Leutholtz, PhD, FACSM, received his BS in dietetics from Michigan State University in 1985, his MS in exercise physiology from Michigan State University in 1987, and his PhD in clinical exercise physiology from Michigan State University in 1992. Dr. Leutholtz completed a 4-year clinical fellowship in clinical cardiology at Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids, Michigan. As a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), he has earned the highest certification given by the ACSM as a clinical program director. Dr. Leutholtz is a professor at Baylor University in Waco, Texas. He was recruited by Baylor to improve their graduate curriculum and begin the development of a PhD program by teaching and creating new courses at the graduate level in sports nutrition and exercise prescription for special populations.

Dr. Leutholtz has past experience as the director and founder of the Old Dominion University Therapeutic Exercise Program for Chronic Disease (TEMPO) in Norfolk, Virginia, and has served as a consultant for an aggressive managed care team providing exercise and diet evaluation/education in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He is currently the coordinator for the exercise physiology graduate program at Baylor University. Dr. Leutholtz has recently added a coauthored second edition book, Exercise Prescription: A Case Study Approach to the ACSM Guidelines, to his list of book publications. The book has been translated into Japanese, Korean, and Chinese. In this book, the long-standing ACSM equations were enhanced and a new term, "VO2 reserve," was adopted by the ACSM.

Ignacio Ripoll, MD, FACP, FACCP, is associate professor of internal medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School and medical director of the Respiratory Therapy and School of Polysomnography Technology at Tidewater Community College. He is also an adjunct professor of exercise physiology at Old Dominion University in Norfolk Virginia. He is a member of Bayview Physicians, a multidisciplinary medical group, and practices pulmonary, sleep, and bariatric medicine in Virginia Beach, Virginia. He has a particular interest in the fields of cardiopulmonary physiology, sleep medicine, and the evaluation and management of the metabolic syndrome.
