Use of temperature alterations to characterize vascular reactivity.
Our present results indicate that finger temperature, heat flux and perfusion display varying rates of recovery following ischaemic stimuli and that differential responses are associated with the initial finger temperature. © 2010 The Authors.

Correlations between Arteriograph-derived pulse wave velocity and aortic elastic properties by echocardiography.
The Arteriograph-derived AIx80 and PWV correlated with aortic strain (R = -0·495, P = 0·023 and R = -0·527, P = 0·014, respectively) and aortic stiffness index (R = 0·454, P = 0·039 and R = 0·608, P = 0·003, respectively). Aortic distensibility did not corr...
Endothelial function and hemodynamics in systemic sclerosis.
We studied 14 SSc females (4 with diffuse and 10 with limited cutaneous form of the disease) and 14 healthy controls matched for age and for cardiovascular risk factors. Endothelium-dependent dilation (i.e. flow-mediated) and endothelium-independent (i.e. nitroglycerin-induced) dilation of the brach...
Reproducibility of pulse contour analysis in children before and after maximal exercise stress test: the Physical Activity and Nutrition in ...
SI had a greater reproducibility after the exercise stress test than before it (CV% 4·8 versus 6·3%, ICC 0·548 versus 0·438). RI had a better ICC (0·689 versus 0·416) but a higher CV% (28·6 versus 18·7%) after the exercise stress test than before it. Relative change in response to the exe...
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in valvular heart disease.
We present a basic introduction to CMR methodology, including its advantages and potential problems, and the physiology and quantification in VHD. We also discuss clinical applications of CMR in VHD. Furthermore, we describe how a CMR study statement should be structured in order to increase clinica...
Assessment of autonomic symptoms in diabetics: the Swedish version of the Autonomic Symptom Profile.
The translation was accepted without changes. Test-retest reliability and content validity of the Swedish ASP were considered good. The construct validity was considered acceptable with two significant associations between the ASP total score and the autonomic nervous function test variables. In add...
Benefits of a worksite or home-based bench stepping intervention for sedentary middle-aged adults - a pilot study.
These results show that less than 30 min per week of bench step exercise, accumulated in short bouts throughout the day, can improve parameters of cardiorespiratory fitness after only 4 weeks in previously sedentary middle-aged adults. Due to its low-cost, time-efficient and discrete aspects, steppi...
Effect of cuff type on arterial occlusion.
We hypothesized that although the cuffs are of similar size, there would be significant differences in arterial occlusion between two cuff materials. With the participants supine, in a randomized order, either the nylon (5 × 83 cm) or elastic (5 × 135 cm) cuffs were applied to the most proximal port...
The echogenicity of the intima-media complex in the common carotid artery is related to insulin resistance measured by the hyperinsulinemic ...
The echogenicity of the intima-media complex (IM-GSM) has recently been shown to be related to the echogenicity in carotid artery plaque and to predict cardiovascular (CV) mortality. The present study aims to evaluate the relationship between metabolic CV risk factors, with special emphasis on insul...
Echogenicity of the carotid intima-media complex and cardiovascular risk factors.
We assessed the factors associated with carotid IM-GSM in younger, non-diabetic patients with a recent MI. A total of 122 patients (women, 25%) aged 31-80 years (61) were recruited 2-3 days after an acute MI. Ultrasound examinations of the carotid arteries were performed 1-12 months after the MI. IM...
