PHTA 2185 PTA Fundamentals IV

This course requires students to apply previously learned concepts and skills to selected cardiac, vascular, pulmonary, and integumentary conditions with integration of other systems as applicable. Laboratory practice will allow hands-on application of selected data collection skills including: aerobic capacity and endurance; assistive, adaptive, orthotic, and prosthetic devices; integumentary integrity; postural alignment; and ventilation and respiration examination. In addition, students will apply therapeutic interventions including, but not limited to: prosthetic and orthotic functional training; sterile techniques; wound management; and establishment and implementation of a HEP. Students will develop the ability to safely and effectively implement, progress, adjust, and document interventions to patient conditions across the life span utilizing critical thinking while following the established plan of care developed by the physical therapist.
