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.

The six-minute walk test (6MWT) is used within clinical and research settings to assess gait performance across a variety of conditions and populations. Commonly, the test is used to identify specific...
Walk tests are commonly used to evaluate walking ability in frail older adults with dementia but their psychometric evidence in this population is lacking.
To determine the construct validity and test re-test reliability of the Six-minute Walk Test (6MWT) and Incremental Shuttle Walk Test (ISWT) in the sub-acute recovery phase following mild-to-moderate ...
The purposes of this study were to document longitudinal developmental trajectories in 6-minute walk test (6MWT) distances and to develop age-specific reference percentiles for children across differe...
Cardiac disease is the leading cause of maternal death. Assessment of cardiovascular fitness is important in pregnant women because it is linked to increased risk of cardiac disease but is rarely unde...
This study was designed to determine if walking with a healthy individual during the 6 minute walk test significantly influenced the outcome of the test.
Primary Objectives 1. To assess the correlation of the pre-operative six-minute walk test results with that of the gold standard exercise test with analysis of gas exchange and mea...
This study evaluates the determinants of mobility, measured by the 6-minute walk test, and its correlation with quality of life in near elderly patients.
The aim of this study is to compare oxygen desaturation during two tests: the 6 minute walk test and the 3 minute step test, for COPD patients.
The purpose of this study is to establish the Six-Minute Walk Test, 10-Meter Walk Test, 30 Second Chair Stand, Linear Analog Scale of Function, and the Modifed Brief Fatigue Inventory as r...
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.
