An exaggerated blood pressure (BP) response during dynamic exercise testing has been proposed as an additional screening tool to identify systolic masked hypertension (masked-HYP). However, masked-HYP in young people is often characterized by an elevated DBP. Static/isometric exercise elicits augmented sympathetic stimulation causing greater increases in both SBP and DBP than dynamic exercise.

Although systolic and diastolic dysfunction must coexist, they are most often considered in isolation. Therefore, a simple and reproducible quantitative measurement that integrates systolic and diasto...
Isometric exercise training (IET)-induced reductions in resting blood pressure (RBP) have been achieved in laboratory environments, but data in support of IET outside the laboratory are scarce. The ai...
Interoception has been shown to influence self-regulation of effort and perceived exertion during exercise. However, whether interoceptive accuracy influences submaximal and maximal exercise performan...
Post-systolic shortening (PSS) does not contribute to the ejection of blood and may inhibit diastolic filling. We determined normal values of PSS in healthy subjects and investigated associations with...
The purpose of this RCT which will be performed in 60 healthy adults is I. To assess the training effects of 8 weeks of isometric handgrip exercise on BP; and to test whether it yields at ...
Studies have shown that isometric strengthening helps people with osteoarthritis of the knee. Isometric strengthening is muscle-strengthening exercise without movement, in which a person a...
Post-exertional malaise was modeled by having Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and sedentary control subjects perform submaximal exercise on 2 consecutive days with objective changes in brai...
Aims: To test the hypothesis that Diastolic dysfunction severity correlates with adverse clinical outcome in patients with systolic heart failure.
The purpose of this study is to investigate the muscle activity of gluteus medius and tensor fascia lata in health control group and patients with PFPS during submaximal isometric muscle c...
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.
A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.
The use of a bicycle for transportation or recreation. It does not include the use of a bicycle in studying the body's response to physical exertion (BICYCLE ERGOMETRY TEST see EXERCISE TEST).
Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries between the heart and lungs of affected individuals. Symptoms can range from mild breathles...
