Six-minute walk test is reliable and sensitive in detecting response to therapy in CIDP.

Summary of "Six-minute walk test is reliable and sensitive in detecting response to therapy in CIDP."

The current clinical measures (ONLS, R-ODS, mRS, and MRC) may not be so sensitive in capturing minimal variations or measuring fatigue in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP). Our aim was to assess if 6-min walk test (6MWT) is able to increase the sensitivity in detecting response to therapy and to capture fatigue in CIDP patients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A measure of endurance tests that show how far and fast an individual can walk without stopping within a certain period of time.

Method of measuring the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy. It is used to monitor the therapy in BACTERIAL ENDOCARDITIS; OSTEOMYELITIS and other serious bacterial infections. As commonly performed, the test is a variation of the broth dilution test. This test needs to be distinguished from testing of the naturally occurring BLOOD BACTERICIDAL ACTIVITY.

A systemic inflammatory response to a variety of clinical insults, characterized by two or more of the following conditions: (1) fever >38 degrees C or HYPOTHERMIA <36 degrees C; (2) TACHYCARDIA >90 beat/minute; (3) tachypnea >24 breaths/minute; (4) LEUKOCYTOSIS >12,000 cells/cubic mm or 10% immature forms. While usually related to infection, SIRS can also be associated with noninfectious insults such as TRAUMA; BURNS; or PANCREATITIS. If infection is involved, a patient with SIRS is said to have SEPSIS.

A standard and widely accepted diagnostic test used to identify patients who have a vasodepressive and/or cardioinhibitory response as a cause of syncope. (From Braunwald, Heart Disease, 7th ed)

A type of automatic, not reentrant, ectopic ventricular rhythm with episodes lasting from a few seconds to a minute which usually occurs in patients with acute myocardial infarction or with DIGITALIS toxicity. The ventricular rate is faster than normal but slower than tachycardia, with an upper limit of 100 -120 beats per minute. Suppressive therapy is rarely necessary.
