Comparison of Physical Activity Regimens as Treatments for Obstructive Sleep Apnea

2014-08-27 03:20:09 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare the efficacy of two different physical activity regimens as complementary or alternative treatment options for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. A secondary purpose of the study is to examine the effects of these activity regimens on various health consequences of obstructive sleep apnea, including blood pressure, systemic inflammation, and daytime functioning.

Lactate Threshold as a Measure of Aerobic Metabolism in Resistance Exercise.

In resistance training, load intensity is usually calculated as the percentage of a maximum repetition (1RM) or maximum number of possible repetitions (% of 1RM). Some studies have proposed a lactate ...

Low-to-moderate intensity aerobic exercise training modulates irritable bowel syndrome through antioxidative and inflammatory mechanisms in women: Results of a randomized controlled trial.

Our aim was to explore the putative beneficial effects of low-to-moderate intensity exercise training program in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). This study evaluated the changes in blood...

Comparative Effectiveness of Low-Volume Time-Efficient Resistance Training Versus Endurance Training in Patients With Heart Failure.

Cardiorespiratory fitness is positively related to heart failure (HF) prognosis, but lack of time and low energy are barriers for adherence to exercise. We, therefore, compared the effect of low-volum...

Moderate Continuous Aerobic Exercise Training Improves Cardiomyocyte Contractility in Β1 Adrenergic Receptor Knockout Mice.

The lack of cardiac β1-adrenergic receptors (β1-AR) negatively affects the regulation of both cardiac inotropy and lusitropy, leading, in the long term, to heart failure (HF). Moderate-intensity aer...

PGC-1α and exercise intensity dependent adaptations in mouse skeletal muscle.

The aim of the present study was to examine the role of PGC-1α in intensity dependent exercise and exercise training-induced metabolic adaptations in mouse skeletal muscle. Whole body PGC-1α knockou...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.

Depressive states usually of moderate intensity in contrast with major depression present in neurotic and psychotic disorders.

Usual level of physical activity that is less than 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity on most days of the week.

CONFORMAL RADIOTHERAPY that combines several intensity-modulated beams to provide improved dose homogeneity and highly conformal dose distributions.

A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
