PT 717 Cardiopulmonary
I have been a physical therapist for 16 years and worked at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. I have had the privilege of being an adjunct professor at Samuel Merritt for the last 4 years in the cardiopulmonary lab.
At Santa Clara Valley Medical Center I work on the cardiopulmonary service and treat a variety of patient's with cardiovascular and pulmonary diagnoses including CAD, COPD, syncope, arrhythmias, s/p CABG or valve replacement, CHF, and HTN. I have worked throughout the continuum of care from ICU to outpatient setting.
In addition to my experience on the cardiopulmonary team I also work throughout other specialty departments within the hospital including the Spinal Cord Injury Rehab team, the TBI and CVA team & neurologic outpatient team. All these experiences have allowed me to be a well rounded physical therapist in which I can assist and address the person as a whole and not just limited to their diagnosis.
