Objective: Prior research indicates that older adults with knee osteoarthritis have increased sensitivity to physical activity (SPA) and respond to physical activities of stable intensity with increases in pain. Whether SPA is present in healthy older adults without chronic pain and predicts functional outcomes remains relatively unexplored. The purpose of this study was to determine the degree of SPA in healthy older adults in response to a standardized walking task, and whether SPA was associated with temporal summation of pain, pain-related fear of movement, and functional outcomes...

Introduction: Lung volume reduction coil (LVRC) is a new treatment method which exercise capacities among the patients with severe emphysema. In order to determine the emphysema distribution before LVRC treatment, we examined the contribution of combination of the high resolution computed tomography (HRCT) of the lung and the quantitative perfusion scintigraphy to the efficiency of the procedure. Materials and Methods: The study was conducted retrospectively. The densitometry analysis and scores of emphysema areas of the patients who were found suitable for LVRC treatment in HRCT were determined...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers, and is a leading cause of cancer mortality world-wide. Due to lack of early specific symptoms, the majority of patients present with advanced, inoperable disease and five-year relative survival across all stages of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is 14%. People with lung cancer also report higher levels of symptom distress than those with other forms of cancer. Several benefits for survival and patient reported outcomes are reported from physical activity and exercise in other tumour groups...

AIMS: Patients with heart failure and preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) are characterized by functional impairment and an abnormal haemodynamic response to exercise. The six-minute walk test (6MWT) serves as a standardized test for functional capacity quantification in heart failure patients, and is associated with cardiovascular outcomes. However, as the association between 6MWT and haemodynamic parameters during rest and exercise in HFpEF patients is unknown, we sought to elucidate this relationship...

The 6 minute walk test (6MWT) is a commonly employed assessment of performance ability in a variety of cardiopulmonary diseases. It provides important functional information that is not captured in standardized pulmonary function testing. The test may be influenced by factors other than the severity of lung disease, including frailty, deconditioning, and musculoskeletal issues. The primary output measure from the six minute walk test is the distance walked, which appears to confer prognostic information in many diverse disease states...
