BACKGROUND: Abnormal heart rate recovery (HRR) is predictive of cardiac mortality. Autonomic abnormalities in beta-thalassemia major (TM) patients have been reported in previous studies. However, the importance of low HRR in exercise stress test in TM patients has not yet been ascertained. Therefore, this study will be the first of its kind in the literature. METHODS: Exercise stress test was performed on 56 TM patients who were being treated at the Thalassemia Center of our hospital, along with 46 non-TM iron deficiency anemia (IDA) patients as a control group...

This study details my viewpoint on the experiences, lessons, and assessments of conducting a national study on care-seeking behavior for heart attack in the United States utilizing the World Wide Web. The Yale Heart Study (YHS) was funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Grounded on two prior studies, the YHS combined a Web-based interview survey instrument; ads placed on the Internet; flyers and posters in public libraries, senior centers, and rehabilitation centers; information on chat rooms; a viral marketing strategy; and print ads to attract potential participants to share their heart attack experiences...

BACKGROUND: More than 60% of patients decline participation in cardiac rehabilitation after a myocardial infarction. Options to improve physical activity (PA) and other risk factors in these high-risk individuals are limited. We conducted a phase 2 randomized controlled trial to determine feasibility, safety, acceptability, and estimates of effect of tai chi on PA, fitness, weight, and quality of life. METHODS AND RESULTS: Patients with coronary heart disease declining cardiac rehabilitation enrollment were randomized to a "LITE" (2 sessions/week for 12 weeks) or to a "PLUS" (3 sessions/week for 12 weeks, then maintenance classes for 12 additional weeks) condition...

The electromyographic fatigue threshold (EMGFT) has been shown to demarcate between non-fatiguing and fatiguing exercise workloads. One potential limitation of incorporating the single EMGFT test in a clinical setting is the 2-min stage increment inherit to the protocol. In most rehabilitation clinics time with the client is limited and any testing procedures need to consider this factor. The purpose of this study, therefore, was to determine whether or not the estimation of the EMGFT is influenced by reducing the incremental stage to 1-min intervals...

BACKGROUND: The benefits of exercise rehabilitation for people with heart failure (HF) are well established. In Australia, little is known about how the guidelines around exercise rehabilitation for people with HF are being implemented in clinical practice. Furthermore, it is unknown what organisational barriers are faced in providing exercise rehabilitation programs for this population. The aim of this study is to provide an updated review of exercise rehabilitation services for people with HF in Australia and to identify perceived organisational barriers to providing these services...

Previous studies showed that changes in peak of oxygen uptake value (VO2peak) with training were poorly related to changes in Maximal Tolerated Power output (MTP) among patients with cardiovascular disease. This result could be due to a difference between cardiopulmonary adaptation to training and the skeletal muscle conditioning. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to compare the responses to exercise training of electromyographic activities of vastus lateralis (rms-EMG) and respiratory parameters...

Aspergillosis is a fungal infection that primarily affects the respiratory tract. Amphotericin B has broad antifungal activity and is commonly used to treat aspergillosis, a fungal pneumonia that is a common sequela in oiled waterfowl as well as other birds in wildlife rehabilitation. Pharmacokinetic parameters of nebulized amphotericin B in an avian model have been reported, but those of direct intratracheal delivery have yet to be established. The objective of this study was to evaluate if a single 3 mg/kg dose of liposomal amphotericin B delivered intratracheally using a commercial atomizer would achieve plasma and lung tissue concentrations exceeding targeted minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) for Aspergillus species in adult mallard ducks (Anas platyrhynchos)...

OBJECTIVE: The relation between malnutrition and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) has been described previously, but it is unclear if malnutrition leads to EPI or vice versa. We systematically synthesized current evidence evaluating the association between malnutrition and EPI in children. METHODS: Pubmed, Embase, and Cochrane databases were searched from inception until February 2017. We included cohort or case- controlled studies in children reporting on prevalence or incidence of EPI and malnutrition...

AIMS: To study the short- and long-term results of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) given in the Helsinki University Heart and Lung Center and to understand the hospital resources used to treat severe COPD exacerbations in the city of Helsinki. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Seventy-eight inactive patients with severe COPD were recruited for a PR course; three of them did not finish the course. The course took 6-8 weeks and included 11-16 supervised exercise sessions. Using electronic medical records, we studied all COPD patients with hospital admission in the city of Helsinki in 2014, including COPD diagnosis, criteria for exacerbation, and potential exclusion/inclusion criteria for PR...

Heart rate recovery after 1 min of exercise cessation (HRR-1) is an important prognostic factor in patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). We aimed to further elucidate the association between HRR-1 and known psychosocial risk factors in patients referred for comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation. We examined 521 patients with coronary heart disease in the first week of an outpatient cardiac rehabilitation program. Depressive and anxiety symptoms were measured with the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and positive (PA) and negative affect were rated with the Global Mood Scale...

BACKGROUND: A rising number of patients are surgically treated for heart failure at the more advanced stage, thanks to the increasing use of left ventricular assist device (LVAD) as a reliable alternative to heart transplantation (HTx). However, it is still unknown whether differences exist between the two surgical approaches in the efficacy of rehabilitation programmes. Therefore, aim of this study was to evaluate whether functional capacity and rehabilitative outcomes differ between HTx and implantation of LVAD...

REVIEW
Johann Altenberger
Heart failure is a malignant disorder with increasing prevalence and a high socioeconomic impact. Sceletal muscle myopathy seems to play a key role in the development of exercise intolerance. Cardiac rehabilitation for heart failure mainly adresses training, namely moderate continuous endurance training or interval training in combination with resistance training, and is highly recommended in the current ESC-guidelines. Following a multimodal concept cardiac rehabilitation also implements optimisation of neurohumoral therapy, education and counselling to empower self-care as well as psychosocial support...

Background Abnormal P-wave axis has been correlated with an increased risk of all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in a general population. We aimed to evaluate the prognostic role of abnormal P-wave axis in patients undergoing myocardial revascularisation or cardiac valve surgery. Methods We considered data of 810 patients with available P-wave axis measure from a prospective monocentric registry of patients undergoing cardiovascular rehabilitation. A total of 436 patients (54%) underwent myocardial revascularisation, 253 (31%) valve surgery, 71 (9%) combined valve and coronary artery bypass graft surgery and 50 (6%) cardiac surgery for other cardiovascular disease...

This study examined the effects of stimulating and sedative music on ratings of perceived exertion (RPE), heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), and feeling status during exercise in cardiac rehabilitation (CR) patients. Twenty-two male and female older adults age 64 ± 8.0 y currently enrolled in phase III CR completed the study. Repeated measures crossover designs guided data collection. The manipulated independent variable was music condition (sedative, stimulating, and non-music control). The dependent variables were RPE, BP, HR, and feeling status with each represented by four repeated measures ANOVAs over time via SAS 9...

Participation in a comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation (CR) program has been shown to reduce mortality and improve exercise capacity and symptoms in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Reduced exercise capacity leads to a concomitant reduction of skeletal muscle mass and accumulation of body fat. However, it is currently unknown whether CR reduces visceral adipose tissue (VAT) and/or subcutaneous abdominal adipose tissue (SAT) in patients with CHF. In addition, the body composition associated with improved exercise capacity after CR in patients with CHF has not been previously studied...

OBJECTIVE: The OPTICARE (OPTImal CArdiac REhabilitation) randomised controlled trial compared two advanced and extended cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programmes to standard CR for patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS). These programmes were designed to stimulate permanent adoption of a heart-healthy lifestyle. The primary outcome was the SCORE (Systematic COronary Risk Evaluation) 10-year cardiovascular mortality risk function at 18 months follow-up. METHODS: In total, 914 patients with ACS (age, 57 years; 81% men) were randomised to: (1) 3 months standard CR (CR-only); (2) standard CR including three additional face-to-face active lifestyle counselling sessions and extended with three group fitness training and general lifestyle counselling sessions in the first 9 months after standard CR (CR+F); or (3) standard CR extended for 9 months with five to six telephone general lifestyle counselling sessions (CR+T)...
