The purpose of the study is to examine the effect of aerobic exercise intensity on components of the differentiated perceived exertion model in young women performing weight bearing and non-weight bearing aerobic exercise. Subjects were 18-25 yr old women who were recreationally active (n = 19; VO2max = 33.40 ml·kg(-1)·min(-1)) and trained (N = 22; VO2max =(More)
Sixty unpremedicated adult day-case patients were randomly assigned to either vital capacity or tidal breathing inhalational induction techniques. End points assessed included loss of eyelash reflex, time to drop a weighted syringe, time to jaw relaxation and time to the end of laryngeal mask airway insertion. Complications occurring during the induction of(More)
