Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy, Critical Care and Rehabilitation

Aims and scope

Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy, Critical Care and Rehabilitation (CPCR) is an official journal of the Brazilian Association of Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy and Physiotherapy in Critical Care (Associação Brasileira de Fisioterapia Cardiorrespiratória e Fisioterapia em Terapia Intensiva - ASSOBRAFIR).

CPCR aims to publish scientifically rigorous research that can potentially contribute to the worldwide advance of cardiorespiratory physiotherapy, rehabilitation and/or physiotherapy in critical care, in adults, elderly, paediatrics and neonates.

Despite being an official journal of a Brazilian association, CPCR has brought together a diverse group of editors and reviewers from different parts of the world in an attempt to bring an international perspective on the research published. CPCR accepts manuscripts in English language only.
