In this issue, we present you Dr. Fick's Linda Crane lecture and two clinical perspectives and two original research articles. During her motivating Linda Crane lecture, Dr. Fick showed us the power of advocacy and service to make a vital impact in our patients and society. Dr. Paul Ricard et al. bring us this now classic review with the most relevant literature in Cardiopulmonary therapy published in 2022 with their 'Year 2022 in Review.' Then, Dr. Lammers and Dr. Ludwig bring a very important topic for differential diagnosis when dizziness in cardiovascular patients could be associated with vestibular impairments and not necessarily with hemodynamic changes. On their original research, Dr. O'Connell et al. studied an important vital sign during general outpatient PT: hypertension. They found that an important number of general patients have increased blood pressure and pulse pressure, what could place them at risk of cardiovascular decompensation, especially in the elderly. Finally, DiPerna et al. studied a comprehensive rehabilitation model in lung transplantation observing that functional recovery was enhanced when using the model. ​
