Darryl is a 59-year-old male who presents the physical therapy with Class III Congestive Heart Failure. He has arrived from the inpatient unit after a severe exacerbation of his CHF but he is cleared by his M.D. for exercise.

The physical therapist is challenged with understanding the pathophysiology related to congestive heart failure as well as the New York Heart Association stages.

This knowledge is required in order to make sound and safe judgments regarding exercise prescription.

This is what we will uncover in this excellent episode based on treating Class III congestive heart failure.
