Cardiovascular and Lymphatic/Immune Pathologies


Review of Mosby’s Pathology for Massage Therapists, by Salvo and Anderson.

Chapter 7 covers a review of the cardiovascular and lymphatic/immune systems including assessment, medications, artificial pacemakers, implantable cardioverter defibrillators, central venous catheters, and how to identify cardiovascular and lymphatic/immune diseases, disorders, and cardiovascular pathologies. This chapter emphasizes how the fluids (blood, interstitial fluids, and lymph) function, the relationship of all the circulation aspects of each system, immunity, and the assessment of disease, disorder, and pathology relative to massage therapy.
