The Effect of an Aerobic Exercise Programme in Stroke Patients

2014-08-27 03:15:50 | BioPortfolio

Summary

This study aims to investigate the effect of aerobic exercise on the aerobic capacity, the daily functioning, post-stroke fatigue , depression and cardiovascular risk factors in stroke patients.

Description

People with neurologic impairments after stroke often show decreased aerobic exercise capacity. The etiologies of which are assigned to physiologic changes in paretic muscle, gait deficits and disability-related deconditioning. This declares that stroke patients live an inactive lifestyle and therefore stay cardiovascular risk patients.

The usefulness of aerobic training on aerobic capacity is recently been proved in clinical stroke research. However, no study can shown the long-term effect of aerobic exercises. Also the effect of aerobic exercises on daily functioning, fatigue and depression in stroke needs to be established.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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 group of gram-negative bacteria consisting of rod- and coccus-shaped cells. They are both aerobic (able to grow under an air atmosphere) and microaerophilic (grow better in low concentrations of oxygen) under nitrogen-fixing conditions but, when supplied with a source of fixed nitrogen, they grow as aerobes.

Alternating sets of exercise that work out different muscle groups and that also alternate between aerobic and anaerobic exercises, which, when combined together, offer an overall program to improve strength, stamina, balance, or functioning.

A large group of aerobic bacteria which show up as pink (negative) when treated by the gram-staining method. This is because the cell walls of gram-negative bacteria are low in peptidoglycan and thus have low affinity for violet stain and high affinity for the pink dye safranine.

An order of CRENARCHAEOTA consisting of aerobic or facultatively aerobic, chemolithotrophic cocci which are extreme thermoacidophiles. They lack peptidoglycan in their cell walls.
