Exercise intolerance is a major burden for patients with complex congenital heart disease (CHD), significantly affecting their quality of life. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing provides a ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of exercise training on exercise capacity, physical activity (PA), health-related quality of life (HRQoL), and the psychosocial fac...
Children with congenital heart diseases (CHD) often show reduced health related physical fitness as well as limitations in gross and fine motor skills/development. Intervention programs in...
Most patients with complex congenital heart disease and cardiomyopathy from acquired heart disease have reduced exercise capacity. Exercise capacity is associated with respiratory muscle s...
The research project includes two components that assess exercise physiology parameters, cerebrovascular reserve, cognitive functions and cardiac function in coronary heart disease patient...
The purpose of this prospective randomised controlled trial was to assess whether home-based, self-selected exercise training is safe, results in high compliance and improves exercise capacity in symp...
Risk prediction using cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in complex congenital heart disease tends to either focus on single diagnoses or complete cohorts. We aimed to evaluate patients with two ...
Heart failure is a complex syndrome that causes substantial functional impairment and poor outcomes. Although multidisciplinary disease management programmes are effective, the role of additional outp...
In patients with coronary heart disease, the exercise workload (i.e., metabolic equivalents of task, METs) at which patients exercise train upon entry and completion of cardiac rehabilitation (CR) are...
Regular exercise is recommended in postmenopausal women to prevent the development of heart disease, but mechanism underlying the protection is not completely understood. Many studies have suggested t...
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.
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
