  3. Standardizing and predicting results from cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with heart failure.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(6):384 (2006) PMID 17135859

    Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is a common prognostic tool in heart failure, yet it is not standardized. The purpose of this study was to evaluate a means of standardizing oxygen consumption (VO(2)) measurement and to evaluate the ability to predict peak VO(2) from submaximal exercise. Fifty c...
  4. Homocysteine--should we screen and treat in preventive cardiology programs?

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

  5. The acute effects of a rollator in individuals with COPD.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(2):107 (2006) PMID 16569980

    To investigate whether the acute benefits of rollator use are consistent over time in individuals with moderate to severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Thirty-one stable subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (13 men, 18 women), aged 68 +/- 8 years, with a forced expiratory...
  6. Exaggerated exercise blood pressure: is it all about inflammation?

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(3):150 (2006) PMID 16738452

  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. The effect of pulmonary rehabilitation on healthcare utilization in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: The Northeast Pulmonary Rehabilitation Consortium.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(4):231 (2006) PMID 16926687

    Although pulmonary rehabilitation results in improvement in multiple outcome areas, relatively few studies in the United States have evaluated its effect on healthcare utilization. This study compared aspects of healthcare utilization during the year before to the year after outpatient pulmonary...
  9. A systematic approach to improve lipids in coronary artery disease patients participating in a cardiac rehabilitation program.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(6):355 (2006) PMID 17135854

    To determine the effectiveness of an intervention, directed toward the primary care physician (PCP), to improve the number of patients treated to low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) goal in a cardiac rehabilitation (CR) population. A pre-post intervention cohort comparison using data col...
  10. Early upper-body exercise in cardiac rehabilitation after coronary artery bypass grafting.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):41 (2006) PMID 16617227

  11. A qualitative approach to developing a patient-derived intervention to increase exercise in peripheral arterial disease.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(2):92 (2006) PMID 16569978

    In designing a patient-physician communication intervention, we explored patients' perceptions of the role of exercise in the treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). We conducted qualitative interviews (5 focus groups and 13 one-on-one interviews) involving 35 patients with known PAD. We...
  12. Short-term reliability of oxygen uptake on-kinetics in apparently healthy subjects.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(4):219 (2006) PMID 16926685

    The analysis of oxygen (O2) uptake on-kinetics at the onset of aerobic exercise has been shown to be reflective of cardiovascular and skeletal muscle health in a number of previous investigations. The purpose of the present investigation is to assess the short-term reliability of O2 uptake on-ki...
  13. 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...
  14. Five-year changes in North Carolina outpatient cardiac rehabilitation.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(6):366 (2006) PMID 17135857

    The purpose of this study was to describe cardiac rehabilitation programming, barriers to participation, and reasons for dropout in North Carolina from a program director's perspective and to compare those results with those of a similar statewide survey conducted 5 years earlier. In 1999 and 20...
  15. Diet and exercise: are they worth it in the era of advanced pharmacotherapy?

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(5):294 (2006) PMID 17003594

  16. Exertional hypotension: the possible role of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(5):319 (2006) PMID 17003599

  17. Exercise intensity: a matter of measuring or of talking?

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(2):78 (2006) PMID 16569973

  18. 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 ...
  19. Short-term exercise training in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation: effects on exercise capacity, AV conduction, and quality of life.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):24 (2006) PMID 16617223

    A randomized study was conducted to determine whether short-term exercise training in patients with chronic atrial fibrillation (AF) might improve exercise capacity and quality of life (QOL), and influence atrioventricular conduction. Atrial fibrillation patients (age 64 +/- 7 years) were random...
  20. Regular walking and long-term maintenance of outcomes after pulmonary rehabilitation.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):44 (2006) PMID 16617228

    Empirical evidence supports the role of exercise as part of pulmonary rehabilitation in improving symptoms of breathlessness (dyspnea), health-related quality of life, and exercise tolerance among patients with chronic lung disease. However, many studies show that these initial benefits tend to ...
