How Well Does the 30-Second Chair Stand Test Predict Rehabilitation Needs in Acutely Admitted Elderly Patients

2015-06-18 04:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aims are to identify predictive indicators of hospitalized elderly medical patients' need for rehabilitation and to validate (known group validity) the Chair Stand Test

Description

In the emergency department the assessment of acutely admitted elderly medical patients' need for rehabilitation is difficult as it has to been performed within 48 hours. Is it possible to use the the Chair Stand Test in combination with admission complaints and identified risk factors to predict the need for rehabilitation? An investigating of the Chair Stand Test is needed, as its validity with hospitalized patients is undocumented.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Five-ring derivatives of dammarane having a chair-chair-chair-boat configuration. They include the lupanes, oleananes, amyrins, GLYCYRRHIZIC ACID, and soyasaponins.

A triterpene that derives from the chair-boat-chair-boat folding of 2,3-oxidosqualene. It is metabolized to CHOLESTEROL and CUCURBITACINS.

In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.

Involuntary rhythmical movements of the eyes in the normal person. These can be naturally occurring as in end-position (end-point, end-stage, or deviational) nystagmus or induced by the optokinetic drum (NYSTAGMUS, OPTOKINETIC), caloric test, or a rotating chair.

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)
