The purpose of this annotated bibliography is to provide the rehabilitation clinician with an evidence-based resource to assist in the evaluation and treatment of older adults with cardiopulmonary conditions. The currently available evidence-based literature related to these conditions is briefly summarized, critiqued, and levels of evidence are provided. It is hoped that this information will be a helpful tool for the healthcare professional assisting older adults with cardiopulmonary conditions.
