A Retrospective Analysis of the Safety and Efficacy of a 6-Week Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program in Patients with Severe Pulmonary Arterial HypertensionDownload
Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is progressive disease characterized by reduced exercise capacity and decreased quality of life. Despite the availability of disease targeted therapies outcomes remain sub-optimal. Pulmonary Rehabilitation has proven to improve outcomes in other chronic...
Βeta-adrenergic receptors and opposition of evoked sympathetic vasoconstriction: Effects of sex and exercise trainingDownload
Stimulation of the sympathetic nervous system evokes the release of neurotransmitters and produces vasoconstriction that is primarily mediated by the binding of norepinephrine (NE) to alpha-adrenergic receptors. However, NE may also bind to beta (β)-adrenergic receptors and produce vasodilation...
The effect of eight weeks of home based aerobic exercise training on peak exercise oxygen consumption, six-minute walk test distance, thigh muscle mass, and health related quality of life in Child Pugh class A and B cirrhosis patientsDownload
Purpose: Cirrhosis patients have reduced peak aerobic power (peak VO2) that is associated with reduced survival. Supervised endurance training is an effective therapy to increase exercise tolerance in cirrhosis. The effect of home-based endurance exercise training (HET) on improving peak VO2 in...
