AAPMD PHYSICAL THERAPY SECTION WEBINAR: Inspiring Breathing Related Evaluation and Treatment of the Thoracic Region for Collaborative Airway Management
Jane Lucas, PT, DPT, BFR, CFMT, FAAOMPT
February 16, 2022 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EST
Dr. Arthur Clifton Guyton, considered one of the father’s of modern medicine, said, “All chronic pain, suffering, and diseases are caused by a lack of oxygen at the cell level.” Since breathing is the vehicle to deliver oxygen to those cells, every system is potentially affected by disordered breathing. As clinicians, it is our job to thoroughly evaluate these patients in order to appropriately treat them. This presentation will delve into the influence of the thoracic region on breathing, its effect on the entire system, and an interdisciplinary model for effective patient care.
