Summary of "Handrail support produces a higher rate pressure product in apparently healthy non-treadmill users during maximal exercise testing."

Exercise treadmill testing (ETT) is a well-established procedure for the diagnosis, prognosis and functional assessment of patients with suspected cardiovascular disease. The use of handrail support during ETT is often discouraged as this has been demonstrated to overestimate functional capacity. It is unknown if this increase in functional capacity translates to an increase in cardiac workload. The aim of this study was to investigate if the use of handrail support during maximal ETT produces an increase in cardiac workload when compared to no handrail support.

To identify, in patients with peripheral artery disease and intermittent claudication (IC), the reproducibility of heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), rate pressure product (RPP), heart rate variabi...

Strong and specific associations between cardiovascular risk factors and white matter micro- and macrostructure in healthy aging.

Cardiovascular health declines with age, increasing the risk of hypertension and elevated heart rate in middle and old age. Here, we used multivariate techniques to investigate the associations betwee...

Simulation of pressure support for spontaneous breathing trials in neonates.

Endotracheal tubes used for neonates are not as resistant to breathing as originally anticipated; therefore, spontaneous breathing trials (SBTs) with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), withou...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Blood pressure levels that are between normotension and hypertension. Individuals with prehypertension are at a higher risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. Generally, prehypertension is defined as SYSTOLIC PRESSURE of 131-139 mm Hg and/or DIASTOLIC PRESSURE of 81-89 when the optimal is 120/80 mm Hg. For diabetics and other metabolism diseases the prehypertension is around 110-129/70-79 mm Hg.

The signs of life that may be monitored or measured, namely pulse rate, respiratory rate, body temperature, and blood pressure.

The pressure within the CARDIAC ATRIUM. It can be measured directly by using a pressure catheter (see HEART CATHETERIZATION). It can be also estimated using various imaging techniques or other pressure readings such as PULMONARY CAPILLARY WEDGE PRESSURE (an estimate of left atrial pressure) and CENTRAL VENOUS PRESSURE (an estimate of right atrial pressure).

Pathological elevation of intra-abdominal pressure (>12 mm Hg). It may develop as a result of SEPSIS; PANCREATITIS; capillary leaks, burns, or surgery. When the pressure is higher than 20 mm Hg, often with end-organ dysfunction, it is referred to as abdominal compartment syndrome.

The tendency of a gas or solute to pass from a point of higher pressure or concentration to a point of lower pressure or concentration and to distribute itself throughout the available space. Diffusion, especially FACILITATED DIFFUSION, is a major mechanism of BIOLOGICAL TRANSPORT.
