End-stage renal disease (ESRD) requiring hemodialysis (HD) is associated with poor health outcomes including low quality of life and physical functioning. The association between quality of life (QoL), mortality and hospitalization is well established; however, few interventions have been shown...
Addressing exercise in therapy: Therapists’ personal exercise habits, attitudes, knowledge, and perceived barriers to addressing exercise with clients.Download
This study was designed to investigate the factors that contribute to addressing exercise in psychotherapy. Self-identified psychotherapists (n=94) completed surveys relating to: the frequency and type of conversations they have with clients regarding exercise; the frequency and length of time in...
Despite the substantial research illustrating the positive effects of physical activity on mental health, there are few studies examining the role of exercise in psychotherapy. This study examined factors associated with psychotherapists addressing physical activity with their clients. To examine...
An Examination of Sex Specific Differences in Glucose Responses Using the Exercise – Physical Activity and Diabetes Glucose Monitoring (E-PAraDiGM) ProtocolDownload
Background/Objective. Continuous glucose monitors (CGM) allow researchers to examine various aspects of circulating glucose profiles in response to exercise. Exercise studies using CGM in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) vary in regards to the type and timing of exercise, making it...
Are Sex and Estrogen Modulators of Sympathetic Vascular Control in Resting and Contracting Skeletal Muscle?Download
The purpose of this thesis was to investigate whether sex and estrogen modulate sympathetic neurovascular control in resting and contracting skeletal muscle. This thesis also investigated the hypothesis that the effects of sex and estrogen on neurovascular control would be mediated by the signal...
Introduction: Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by intermittent episodes of acute airway inflammation and bronchoconstriction. Although asthma is generally considered a disease of the airways, asthma is also associated with an increased risk of developing cardiovascular (CV)...
Does overload exercise training alter autonomic nervous system activity and hemodynamic regulation in aerobically fit men?Download
In general, chronic endurance training has positive effects on physiological function. However, the performance of training in excess of what an individual is able to recover from can lead to performance, physiological and psychobiological maladaptation. The purposes of this investigation were to...
EASE-BE-FIT: Elder-Friendly Approaches to the Surgical Environment Bedside Reconditioning for Functional Improvements An Innovative Reconditioning Program for Elderly Emergency Abdominal Surgery PatientsDownload
Introduction: Elderly individuals who are hospitalized due to emergency abdominal surgery spend on average over 80% of their recovery time in bed, resulting in early and rapid muscle loss. As these elderly individuals have a lower physiological reserve, the impact of muscle wasting on function...
The effect of heavy load carriage on pulmonary function at rest and on breathing pattern and lung volumes during graded exercise was studied. Fifteen males completed treadmill tests to measure VO2peak with and without a 25-kg pack. Subsequently, each subject completed short periods of treadmill...
The prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) has been dramatically increasing globally. Exercise is recommended as a first line treatment, along with diet and medications. The mechanisms by which exercise improves glycemic control are not fully understood but are typically attributed to changes in...
