Practitioners need access to and the ability to openly discuss advanced in practice and concepts as they apply to the practice of cardiovascular and pulmonary physical therapy (PT). Lack of accessibility to research literature, limited personal time, or insufficient knowledge to adequately review the breadth of literature published each year can hinder this process. This article provides an overview of cardiovascular and pulmonary research published in 2016 that the authors believe most important and relevant or speak to the volume or trend of current topics in the clinical practice of cardiovascular and pulmonary PT. Several key sections are used to describe selected articles and are followed by brief overview of clinical relevance of this material presented at the 2017 Combined Sections Meeting in San Antonio, Texas.
