PURPOSE Energy expenditure measured in METs is widely used in cardiovascular medicine, exercise physiology, and nutrition assessment. However, measurement of METs requires complex equipment to determine oxygen uptake. A simple method to predict oxygen uptake on the basis of HR measurements without requirement for gas analysis, movement-recording devices, or(More)
A group of 163 men in the Hamilton, Ont. region who had suffered a myocardial infarction were enrolled in a rehabilitation program of physical activity. These men constituted one cohort of a multicentre collaborative study designed to determine the effects of regular exercise of differing intensity on morbidity and mortality over a 4-year period.The(More)
The primary aim of this investigation was to compare maximum wheelchair performance with arm cranking using a multistage progressive work load protocol. In five subjects with a wide range of neurological disability and two normal males the differences observed in maximum oxygen uptake, heart rate and ventilation during two forms of upper limbs exercise,(More)
Medical records and radiographs were reviewed from 20 foals with caudal femoral condylar lesions. Osseous lesions were classified radiographically into 3 categories. Type-I lesions were characterized by a discrete area of radiolucency within the subchondral bone of the caudal aspect of a femoral condyle and were associated with septic arthritis and(More)
Maximum exercise testing using treadmill walking and cycle ergometry was compared in 40 male patients who had suffered a myocardial infarction in the preceeding twelve months. Maximum oxygen uptake was on average 17% greater in the treadmill than the cycle test and maximum heart rate was also higher, but the rate pressure product (RPP) was a similar due to(More)
Previous research on the theory of planned behavior (TPB) is characterized by cross-sectional tests of the model's proposed causal relationships. In the absence of effective experimental techniques for changing the TPB's cognitive antecedents, the present research aimed to provide a stronger non-experimental test of the model, using causal analyses of(More)
PURPOSE To test the hypothesis that in males aged 65-75 yr when the total amount of work completed is similar in endurance training three times per week for 12 wk at either 50% or 70% peak oxygen uptake (VO2(peak)), there will be no significant difference in time course and amplitude of selected responses. METHODS Subjects were randomly assigned to three(More)
The effects on blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR), at rest and during bicycle exercise, of the vascular selective calcium antagonist felodipine, the cardio-selective beta-blocker metoprolol, and of the two drugs in combination, were assessed in a double-blind, three-way cross-over study comprising 23 patients with essential, mild to moderate(More)
