Effects of music on exercise and perceived symptoms in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Distances walked were 331m +/- 19 (SE) for the music walk and 321m +/- 21 (SE) for the control walk (P = .25). Within each condition, ratings of perceived exertion and dyspnea increased from minute 1 to minute 6 (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: There were no statistically significant differences observed bet...
The assessment of recovery in patients after myocardial infarction using three generic quality-of-life measures.
During the period of this study, all three generic quality-of-life measures displayed only modest levels of sensitivity to change. Other quality-of-life measures need to be developed for the assessment of cardiac patients. This is particularly important when choosing suitable quality-of-life measure...
Maintenance of exercise capacity and physical activity patterns 2 years after cardiac rehabilitation.
The benefits of exercise training for postmyocardial infarction and postcoronary artery bypass surgery patients are well established, but little is known about the effects of rehabilitation in the months or years following the program. The purpose of this study was to assess exercise capacity, blood...
Attendance of ethnic minority patients in cardiac rehabilitation.
The Wisconsin outcomes experience: baseline outcomes of the WISCVPR Web-based Outcomes Project.
The measurement of outpatient cardiac rehabilitation (OCR) outcomes is now considered common practice. Unfortunately, because of the costs involved in purchasing outcomes tracking software, many programs are not able to participate in pooled outcomes analysis and benchmarking. The purpose of this re...
Noninvasive ventilation during exercise training improves exercise tolerance in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
In patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary rehabilitation has been demonstrated to increase exercise capacity and reduce dyspnea. In the most disabled patients, the intensity of exercise during the training sessions is limited by ventilatory pump capacity. This study therefore...
Assessing health-related quality of life: is it important when evaluation the effectiveness of cardiac rehabilitation?
Vascular oxidative stress and antioxidant protection in atherosclerosis: what do the clinical trials say?
Criterion validity of the Duke Activity Status Index for assessing functional capacity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseas...
This study evaluated the concurrent criterion validity of the Duke Activity Status Index (DASI) with respect to standard physiologic work capacity indices in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and compared its performance with similar surrogates. 119 patients with moderate to...
Medically directed home-based exercise using a stepping device with ECG telemetry monitoring in patients with previous myocardial infarction...
