Unformatted text preview: Health Screening and Risk Stratification PrePre-Screening and Risk Stratification Chapter 2 and 3 ACSM What is involved in the prepreprocess screening process? The The Basic Goal – To determine if it is safe for an individual to start an exercise program what exercise program, what type type of exercise testing is appropriate, and what medical supervision is necessary. ACSM, ACSM, AHA, AACVPR have set specific guidelines concerning pre-participation prescreening and primary and secondary stratification stratification Health Health Concerns Contraindications Contraindications Increased Increased Risk Medical Medical supervision or other special needs What is the process? 1. If in a clinical setting, obtain informed consent. 2. A form of medical and health history 3. What goals for activity does the person have? (this is important !!!) !!!) 4. Risk Stratify the client. 5. Decided whether it is recommended to do a physical exam, exercise test the person, AND what type of test is appropriate. 6. Decide if your facility can test the person by….. 1 PrePre-participation Screening Informed Informed Consent (pg 53 example) PARPAR-Q* - minimal standard Physical Physical Exam findings Lung sounds Lung sounds Heart Heart sounds Laboratory Laboratory Tests Blood Blood Blood Blood pressure Pulmonary Pulmonary Function FIGURE 2-1, ACSM Guidelines 2 PrePre-participation Screening Medical Medical History Diagnoses Diagnoses Hospitalizations/ Hospitalizations/ Surgery Medications Medications (action, dose) Taking meds regularly Taking meds regularly Family Family Hx Risk Risk Factors* Current Current Physical Activity Hx Previous Previous exercise test findings Frequency, Frequency, Type, signs and symptoms (SxS) – (Box 2-1) 2Veteran’s Veteran’s Specific Activity Questionnaire Veterans Specific Activity Questionnaire (VSAQ) PrePre-participation Screening (con’t) Risk Risk Factors (Table 2-1) 2Family Family History Cigarette Cigarette Smoking Hypertension Hypertension Hypercholesterolemia Hypercholesterolemia Impaired Impaired fasting glucose Obesity Obesity Sedentary Sedentary lifestyle Negative Negative Risk Factor High High serum HDL Physical Activity Screening - Symptoms Which Which of the following SxS do you have with exertion?

What type of test is recommended? AHA AHA Class Class A, B, C, and D Are there any known medical conditions that might cause problems with exercise or exercise testing? Stage 1: Known Diseases Yes -Medical checkup needed -Doctor needed at maximal test -Doctor needed at submax test No Are there any signs or symptoms of underlying cardiopulmonary disease, even if it hasn't been diagnosed? Are there any risk factors that might mean this person is presisposed to cardiovascular disease? Stage 2: Signs and Symptoms of Cardiopulmunary Disease Yes Vigorous Exercise -Medical checkup needed -Doctor needed at maximal test -No doctor needed at submax test No Stage 3: Cardiac Risk Factors Yes Stage 5: Exercise Choice No Is this person at or above the cutoff age limits: 44 for men and 54 for women? Stage 4: Age Risk Yes No Moderate Exercise -No medical checkup needed -Doctor needed at maximal test -No doctor needed at submax test -No medical checkup needed prior to exercise training -No medical supervision for maximal or submaximal exercise test 5 Indications for Exercise Testing1. SxS SxS Exercise Exercise induced SxS Angina Angina Old or new ECG abnormalities 2. Prognosis 3. Exercise Capacity, Prescription Evaluate Rx Outcomes Use Use to predict mortality 4. Contraindications to Exercise Testing Diagnosis Do Do the risks of exercise testing outoutweigh indications?
