6-minute Stepper Test and Pulmonary Rehabilitation in Patients With Chronicle Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

2016-07-26 03:08:22 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to determine, if it exists, a relation between plateau heart rate from the last 3 minutes of the 6-minute stepper test and heart rate from first ventilatory threshold from cardiopulmonary exercise testing in order to individualise pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with mild to moderate chronicle obstructive pulmonary disease.

Study Design

Observational Model: Cohort, Time Perspective: Prospective

Evaluation of a graded exercise test to determine peak fat oxidation in individuals with low cardiorespiratory fitness.

The maximal capacity to utilise fat (peak fat oxidation [PFO]) may have implications for health and ultra-endurance performance, and is commonly determined by incremental exercise tests employing 3-mi...

A 3-minute test of cardiorespiratory fitness for use in primary care clinics.

Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is the only major risk factor that is not routinely assessed in the clinical setting, for preventive medicine. A valid and practical CRF test is needed for use in the c...

The 3-minute all-out cycling test is sensitive to changes in cadence using the Lode Excalibur Sport ergometer.

This study investigated the effect cadence has on the estimation of critical power (CP) and the finite work capacity (W') during the 3-minute all-out cycling test. Ten participants completed 8 tests: ...
