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.

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.

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

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

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.
