Submaximal exercise testing: clinical application and interpretation.
TLDR
Compared with maximal exercise testing, submaximal exercise testing appears to have greater applicability to physical therapists in their role as clinical exercise specialists and to apply the tests selectively based on their indications. Expand
Physiotherapy for adult patients with critical illness: recommendations of the European Respiratory Society and European Society of Intensive Care Medicine Task Force on Physiotherapy for Critically
TLDR
There is a need to standardize pathways for clinical decision-making and education, to define the professional profile of physiotherapists, and increase the awareness of the benefits of prevention and treatment of immobility and deconditioning for critically ill adult patients. Expand

TLDR
The 6MWT distance was useful in elucidating the relation between impairment and a functional activity-namely, walking-in survivors of poliomyelitis and reproducibility was high; hence, test validity and interpretation were enhanced. Expand
Body position change and its effect on hemodynamic and metabolic status.
TLDR
Examination of body position on oxygen consumption and hemodynamics yields further insight into how the adverse and beneficial effects of body positioning as a therapeutic intervention may be mediated through gravitational stress and myocardial mechanics. Expand
