Introduction to Exercise Physiology, identifies the key scientific content that is critically important to the successful practice of exercise physiology. This text focuses on the profession of exercise physiology by introducing students to the scientific basis for the practice of exercise physiology to prevent or control mind-body diseases, promote health and well-being, and enhance athlete performance. The goal of this text is to embrace a new paradigm of exercise physiology as a comprehensive healthcare profession and not as a one-course experience. Introduction to Exercise Physiology is endorsed by The American Society of Exercise Physiologists (ASEP) a national non-profit professional organization committed to the advancement of exercise physiologists. The text emphasizes sound scientific content that will help exercise physiologists design appropriate exercise prescription that focuses on the public health challenges of a sedentary lifestyle. Students will learn the necessary physiologic, electrocardiographic, biomechanic, and anatomic concepts pertinent to prepare for and pass the ASEP Board Certification exam. In addition, the text enables students to understand the ethics of sports nutrition and athletic performance, by examining exercise metabolism, fuel utilization, and cardiovascular functions and adaptations from a non-performance enhancing supplement perspective. Specific physiologic calculations are presented to teach students how to monitor exercise intensity, as well as to improve the safety and credibility of client-specific test protocols, health and fitness training programs, and athletic competitions. To support the “exercise as medicine” approach of the text it is organized into seven major areas: Part I Scientific Aspects of Exercise Physiology Part II Training the Cardiorespiratory and Muscular Systems Part III Training and Performance Part IV Exercise Is Medicine Part V Exercise Biomechanics Part VI Anatomy of Sports and Exercise Part VII The Profession of Exercise Physiology

Exercise immunology is an important, emerging sub-discipline within exercise physiology, concerned with the relationship between exercise, immune function and infection risk. This book offers a comprehensive, up-to-date and evidence-based introduction to exercise immunology, including the physiological and molecular mechanisms that determine immune function and the implications for health and performance in sport and everyday life. Written by a team of leading exercise physiologists, the book describes the characteristics of the immune system and how its components are organised to form an immune response. It explains the physiological basis of the relationship between stress, physical activity, immune function and infection risk, and identifies the ways in which exercise and nutrition interact with immune function in athletes and non-athletes. The book shows students how to evaluate the strengths and limitations of the evidence linking physical activity, immune system integrity and health, and explains why exercise is associated with anti-inflammatory effects that are potentially beneficial to long-term health. Every chapter includes useful features, such as clear summaries, definitions of key terms, discussions of seminal research studies and practical guidelines for athletes on ways to minimise infection risk, with additional learning resources available on a companion website. This is an essential textbook for any course on exercise immunology or advanced exercise physiology.

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is an important diagnostic test in pulmonary medicine and cardiology. Capable of providing significantly more information about an individual’s exercise capacity than standard exercise treadmill or 6-minute walk tests, the test is used for a variety of purposes including evaluating patients with unexplained exercise limitation or dyspnea on exertion, monitoring disease progression or response to treatment, determining fitness to undergo various surgical procedures and monitoring the effects of training in highly fit athletes. Introduction to Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing is a unique new text that is ideal for trainees. It is presented in a clear, concise and easy-to-follow manner and is capable of being read in a much shorter time than the available texts on this topic. Chapters describe the basic physiologic responses observed during sustained exercise and explain how to perform and interpret these studies. The utility of the resource is further enhanced by several sections of actual patient cases, which provide opportunities to begin developing test interpretation skills. Given the widespread use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in clinical practice, trainees in pulmonary and critical care medicine, cardiology, sports medicine, exercise physiology, and occasionally internal medicine, will find Introduction to Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing to be an essential and one of a kind reference.
