Randomized clinical trial of prehabilitation in colorectal surgery
‘Prehabilitation’ is an intervention to enhance functional capacity in anticipation of a forthcoming physiological stressor. In patients scheduled for colorectal surgery, the extent to which aExpand

Arterial versus capillary blood gases: A meta-analysis
A meta-analysis determined whether capillary blood gases accurately reflect arterial blood samples. A mixed effects model was used on 29 relevant studies obtained from a PubMed/Medline search. FromExpand

Impact of preoperative change in physical function on postoperative recovery: argument supporting prehabilitation for colorectal surgery.
BACKGROUND Abdominal surgery represents a physiologic stress and is associated with a period of recovery during which functional capacity is often diminished. "Prehabilitation" is a program toExpand

Laboratory 20-km cycle time trial reproducibility.
This study evaluated the reproducibility of laboratory based 20-km time trials in well trained versus recreational cyclists. Eighteen cyclists (age = 34 +/- 8 yrs; body mass index = 23.1 +/- 2.2 kg/mExpand

Evidence and Possible Mechanisms of Altered Maximum Heart Rate With Endurance Training and Tapering
AbstractExercise physiologists, coaches and athletes have traditionally used heart rate (HR) to monitor training intensity during exercise. While it is known that aerobic training decreasesExpand

Standardisation and application of the single-breath determination of nitric oxide uptake in the lung
Diffusing capacity of the lung for nitric oxide (DLNO), otherwise known as the transfer factor, was first measured in 1983. This document standardises the technique and application of single-breathExpand
