Acute Hemodynamic Effects of Nifedipine During Supine Exercise in Patients with Prior Myocardial Infarction
- Impact of passive vibration on pressure pulse wave characteristics. Sanchez-Gonzalez, M A; Wong, A; Vicil, F; Gil, R; Park, S Y; Figueroa, A // Journal of Human Hypertension;Oct2012, Vol. 26 Issue 10, p610
The augmentation index (AIx), a marker of wave reflection, decreases following acute leg exercise. Passive vibration (PV) causes local vasodilation that may reduce AIx. This study investigated the effects of acute PV on wave reflection and aortic hemodynamics. In a crossover fashion 20 (M=9,...
- Effects of upper-limb exercise on lower-limb cutaneous microvascular function in post-surgical varicose-vein patients. Klonizakis, Markos; Tew, Garry A.; Michaels, Jonathan A.; Saxton, John M. // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Aug2010, Vol. 109 Issue 6, p1221
Regular walking exercise attenuates lower-limb cutaneous microvascular endothelial dysfunction in post-surgical varicose-vein patients. This study assessed the effects of upper-limb exercise training on lower-limb cutaneous microvascular function in this patient group. Six post-surgical...
- Cochrane Corner: is there a benefit of using intracoronary vasodilators in ST segment elevation myocardial infarction? Meier, Pascal; Timmis, Adam; Casas, Juan-Pablo; Otto, Catherine // Heart;Oct2013, Vol. 99 Issue 19, p1381
An answer to the question what are the benefits of using intracoronary vasodilators in ST segment elevation myocardial infarction.
- Effects of exercise on vasodilatory capacity in endurance- and resistance-trained men. Baynard, Tracy; Miller, Wayne C.; Fernhall, Bo // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Mar2003, Vol. 89 Issue 1, p69
To determine vasodilatory responsiveness we measured forearm blood flow (FBF) following reactive hyperemia (RH), prior to and following a bout of maximal aerobic exercise in endurance- (n=14) and resistance-trained men (n=10). Both groups were similar in height, body mass, and percentage body...
- Acute Moderate-Intensity Exercise Induces Vasodilation Through an Increase in Nitric Oxide Bioavailiability in Humans. Goto, Chikara; Nishioka, Kenji; Umemura, Takashi; Jitsuiki, Daisuke; Sakagutchi, Akihiro; Kawamura, Mitsutoshi; Chayama, Kazuaki; Yoshizumi, Masao; Higashi, Yukihito // American Journal of Hypertension;Aug2007, Vol. 20 Issue 8, p825
Background: Long-term moderate-intensity exercise augments endothelium-dependent vasodilation through an increase in nitric oxide (NO) production. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of different intensities of acute exercise on hemodynamics in humans. Methods: We evaluated...
- Aerobic Training During Abdominal Exercise With a Portable Abdominal Machine. Petrofsky, Jerrold S.; Morris, Amy; Jorritsma, Rachel; Bonacci, Julie; Bonilla, Trinidad // Journal of Applied Research;Fall2003, Vol. 3 Issue 4, p394
Four male and 4 female subjects participated in a series of experiments to determine the aerobic capacity of the abdominal muscles and to see if a portable abdominal machine called the 6 Second Abs machine could increase the aerobic endurance and strength of the abdominal muscles. Subjects were...
- What doesn't kill us makes us stronger. Leff, Michael // Consumer Reports on Health;Jul98, Vol. 10 Issue 7, p2
Editorial. Discusses the precautions to take to avoid heart attack when exercising. What to do before doing exercises in heated temperatures; Need to consume an adequate amount of water; Avoidance of alcoholic beverages.
- Modification of Physical Activity 5 Months After Myocardial Infarction: Relevance of Biographic and Personality Characteristics. Huijbrechts, Irma P.A.M.; Erdman, Rudolph A.M.; Duivenvoorden, Hugo J.; Deckers, Jaap W.; Leenders, Ineke C.M.; Pop, Gheorge A.M.; Passchier, Jan // International Journal of Behavioral Medicine;1997, Vol. 4 Issue 1, p76
The relation between modification of physical activity, a risk factor for coronary heart disease, and personality characteristics was assessed in 166 survivors of a first myocardial infarction (MI). Physical activity was assessed before MI in retrospect and again 5 months after MI. Patients...
