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

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

  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. Depression and social interaction in secondary prevention and rehabilitation programs.

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

  5. 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...
  6. 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 ...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  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...
  11. Diet and exercise: are they worth it in the era of advanced pharmacotherapy?

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

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

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

  13. Does sitting posture in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease really matter? An analysis of 2 sitting postures and their effect [corrected] on pulmonary function.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(6):405 (2006) PMID 17135862

    The purpose of this study was to investigate changes that occur in pulmonary function when postural changes in the sagittal plane are made in a seated position in patients diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Fourteen patients diagnosed with COPD participated in this stud...
  14. 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...
  15. Effect of a problem-based learning rehabilitation program on physical activity in patients with coronary artery disease.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):39 (2006) PMID 16617226

  16. Early upper-body exercise in cardiac rehabilitation after coronary artery bypass grafting.

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

  17. Exercise training for patients with chronic atrial fibrillation.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(1):30 (2006) PMID 16617224

  18. Hemostatic responses to resistance training in patients with coronary artery disease.

    Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation 26(2):80 (2006) PMID 16569974

    This study was undertaken to evaluate changes in coagulation and fibrinolytic responses to an acute bout of resistance training in patients with coronary artery disease. Fourteen low-to-moderate risk men (mean age, 57.6 +/- 9 years; body mass index, 26.7 +/- 4.0 kg/m) with known coronary artery ...
