The purpose of this study is to investigate the bronchial inflammation and hyperresponsiveness after oil supplementation. Before and after oil supplementation the investigators measure dec...
The purpose of this study is to determine the difference (if any) in the result of the methacholine challenge (a test used by physicians in diagnosing asthma) when concentrations of methac...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the quality of life of subjects suffering from dyspnoea while exercising and quantify the number of diagnoses of Exercise induced Asthma (EIA) a...
The overall hypotheses are: 1) an indirect airway challenge procedure using mannitol can safely characterize asthma phenotypes, predict asthma control and exacerbations, predict responses ...
The study will assess three different nebulizers for use in methacholine challenge testing in order to determine if the Aeroneb Solo would make a suitable replacement for the long-used and...
Mammals defend against cold-induced reductions in body temperature through both shivering and non-shivering thermogenesis. The activation of non-shivering thermogenesis is primarily driven by uncoupli...
Recent guidelines concerning exercise for people with cancer provide evidence-based direction for exercise assessment and prescription for clinicians and their patients. Although the guidelines promot...
Moderate physical activity improves overall health conditions in subjects with type 1 diabetes. However, insulin management during and after exercise is challenging due to the effects of exercise on g...
The first aim was to develop a dynamic measure of physical competence that requires a participant to demonstrate fundamental, combined and complex movement skills, and for assessors to score both proc...
Continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) plays an important role in treatment decisions for patients with type 1 diabetes under conventional or closed-loop therapy. Physical activity represents a great cha...
The organization, management, and assumption of risks of a business or enterprise, usually implying an element of change or challenge and a new opportunity.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Undertaking a task involving a challenge for achievement or a desirable goal in which there is a lack of certainty or a fear of failure. It may also include the exhibiting of certain behaviors whose outcomes may present a risk to the individual or to those associated with him or her.
Asthma attacks following a period of exercise. Usually the induced attack is short-lived and regresses spontaneously. The magnitude of postexertional airway obstruction is strongly influenced by the environment in which exercise is performed (i.e. inhalation of cold air during physical exertion markedly augments the severity of the airway obstruction; conversely, warm humid air blunts or abolishes it).
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.
