  1. Homocysteine--should we screen and treat in preventive cardiology programs?

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(5):281 (2006) PMID 17003592

  2. The effect of a psychosocial intervention and quality of life after acute myocardial infarction: the Enhancing Recovery in Coronary Heart Disease (ENRICHD) clinical trial.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):9 (2006) PMID 16617220

    The Enhancing Recovery in Coronary Heart Disease Patients (ENRICHD) clinical trial was designed to test whether intervening on depression or low perceived social support reduces mortality and reinfarction in patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI). This report analyzes the effect of the i...
  3. A nomogram to select the optimal treadmill ramp protocol in subjects with high exercise capacity: validation and comparison with the Bruce protocol.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):16 (2006) PMID 16617222

    Guidelines suggest that individualized ramp protocols with treadmill times targeted between 8 and 12 minutes are most suitable to estimate exercise capacity. However, previous methods to determine individualized ramp rates and comparisons between ramp and standardized protocols have been limited...
  4. Effects of a problem-based learning rehabilitation program on physical activity in patients with coronary artery disease.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):32 (2006) PMID 16617225

    To evaluate the effects of a problem-based learning (PBL) rehabilitation program on physical activity. We randomized 207 consecutive patients younger than 70 years, with a recent event of coronary artery disease (CAD), to a PBL group (n = 104) or a control group (n = 103). In addition to standar...
  5. High-density lipoprotein cholesterol therapies: the next frontier in lipid management.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):1 (2006) PMID 16617219

    Current cholesterol treatment guidelines target low-density lipoprotein cholesterol as the primary goal of therapy and recommend statins as first line therapy. However, despite aggressive treatment and success at reaching the recommended goals, coronary heart disease is still a leading cause of ...
  6. Aerobic exercise and lipids and lipoproteins in patients with cardiovascular disease: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(3):131 (2006) PMID 16738448 PMCID PMC2447859

    Use the meta-analytic approach to examine the effects of aerobic exercise on lipids and lipoproteins in adults with cardiovascular disease (CVD). Studies were retrieved via electronic databases, review of reference lists from retrieved articles, including reviews, and hand searching. Inclusion c...
  7. Hopelessness and depression in the early recovery period after hospitalization for acute coronary syndrome.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(3):152 (2006) PMID 16738453

    Psychosocial factors, such as depression, have been identified as important predictors of morbidity and mortality in individuals with coronary heart disease; however, little research has been done examining hopelessness in this population. This investigation examined the frequency and severity o...
  8. Depression and social interaction in secondary prevention and rehabilitation programs.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(3):164 (2006) PMID 16738455

  9. The effect of handrail support on oxygen uptake during steady-state treadmill exercise.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(6):391 (2006) PMID 17135860

    Heart rate (HR) and oxygen consumption (VO(2)) are indicators of the intensity of exercise. Handrail support has been shown, during maximal treadmill testing, to blunt HR and VO(2) responses at a particular speed and grade, resulting in an increased treadmill time and overprediction in aerobic c...
  10. The effect of single set resistance training on strength and functional fitness in pulmonary rehabilitation patients.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(5):330 (2006) PMID 17003602

    The primary goal of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) is for patients to achieve and maintain their maximum level of independence and functioning in the community. Traditional PR uses a predominantly aerobic/endurance approach to rehabilitation with little or no inclusion of exercises to increase st...
