This session discusses methods of assessment to appropriately quantify baseline aerobic capacity, tools, and technology that are available to ensure close monitoring of patient response to exercise and exercise prescription and implementation of a properly dosed HIIT program to promote cardiovascular adaptation. Using videos and interactive activities, presenters will demonstrate practical assessment and intervention strategies for endurance training in home health. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
