 Clinical Exercise Testing 

As highlighted in Chapter 5 of your course text, clinical exercise testing is conducted for numerous reasons. The purpose for exercise testing, the client’s history and characteristics, as well as the desired outcomes, should be considered before choosing a test modality and protocol.

After studying Chapter 5 and reviewing the Introduction to Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing (Links to an external site.) video, address the following elements:

  • Select two specific purposes for conducting clinical exercise testing and explain each briefly.
  • For each chosen purpose, summarize the type of clients and their characteristics (i.e., gender, age, history, diagnoses, symptoms), warranting the administration of clinical exercise testing.
  • Assess one exercise test modality and its common uses.
  • Appraise the need for an exercise protocol and the rationale for individualizing it.

Support your work with your course text and at least one additional scholarly source. Your initial post should be at least 250 to 300 words in length.
