Lecture Topic: Measuring and Interpreting Vital Signs in Physical Therapy Practice

About the Topic: While the #VitalsareVITAL campaign grasped the attention of the physical therapy profession in 2018, the importance of measuring and interpreting vital sign responses to physical activity has become essential during and emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic. This session aims to review the appropriate measurement and interpretation of vital signs in adults to support clinical decision-making in physical therapy practice. Normal and abnormal vital sign responses will be discussed, including the influence of common health conditions and medications at rest and during exercise.
