A Simple Approach to Assess VT During a Field Walk Test
(Georg Thieme Verlag Kg, 2010-10-01)
We aimed to examine whether the ventilatory threshold (VT) during an incremental shuttle walk test (ISWT) could be determined using heart rate variability (HRV) analysis. Further aims were to assess variables capable of ...
Walking distances comparison between 1-minute intervals of 6-minutes walk test in multiple sclerosis patients
(Sage Publications Ltd, 2012-12-01)
Six-minute-walk test and maximum exercise test in cycloergometer in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Are the physiological demands equivalent?
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The physiological load imposed by the six minute walk test (SMWT) in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients come from small studies where the influence of disease severity has not ...
Reproducibility of 6-minute walking test in patients with COPD
(European Respiratory Soc Journals Ltd, 2011-08-01)
The reproducibility of the 6-min walking test (6MWT) needs to be more solidly studied. This study aimed to investigate the reproducibility of two 6MWTs performed on subsequent days in a large and representative sample of ...
Teste graduado da caminhada (Shuttle Walk Test) na avaliação funcional de pacientes com insuficiência cardíaca crônica
(Universidade Federal de São Paulo (UNIFESP), 2006-01-01)
Objetivos: Avaliar a segurança, reprodutibilidade, a acurácia em estimar o consumo de oxigênio pico e o valor prognóstico do teste graduado da caminhada (“shuttle walk test”), em comparação com o teste da caminhada de seis ...
The Incremental Shuttle Walk Test in Older Brazilian Adults
Background: Despite widespread use of the incremental shuttle walk distance (ISWD), there are no reference equations for predicting it. Objectives: We aimed to evaluate ISWD in healthy subjects and to establish a reference ...
Distances walked in the six-minute walk test: suggestion of defining characteristic for the nursing diagnosis Ineffective Peripheral Tissue Perfusion
(UNIV SAO PAULO, ESCOLA DE ENFERMAGEM DE RIBEIRAO PRETORIBEIRAO PRETO, 2012)
Distances walked in walking tests are important functional markers, although they are not accepted as defining characteristics of Ineffective Peripheral Tissue Perfusion. The aims of this study were to verify the distances ...
Avaliação da capacidade de caminhar do portador de obesidade mórbida utilizando teste de caminhada de 6 minutos
(Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do NorteBRUFRNPrograma de Pós-Graduação em FisioterapiaMovimento e Saúde, 2009-07-30)
Introduction: The ability to walk is impaired in obese by anthropometric factors (BMI and height), musculoskeletal pain and level of inactivity. Little is known about the influence of body adiposity and the acute response ...
Effects of oxygen supplementation on acute mountain sickness symptoms and functional capacity during a 2-kilometer walk test on chajnantor plateau (5050 meters, Northern Chile)
Objective.—The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that administration of low-flow oxygen will improve physical performance in subjects unacclimatized to altitude. We evaluated the effects of oxygen supplementation ...
