BACKGROUND Alzheimer's disease (AD) is diagnosed based upon medical history, neuropsychiatric examination, cerebrospinal fluid analysis, extensive laboratory analyses and cerebral imaging. Diagnosis is time consuming and labour intensive. Parkinson's disease (PD) is mainly diagnosed on clinical grounds. OBJECTIVE The primary aim of this study was to(More)
BACKGROUND Various exercise training programs are used for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) of different severity. OBJECTIVES To investigate the impact of individualized high-intensity training on exercise capacity with COPD. METHODS A total of 49 patients agreed to participate. Of these, 31 were assigned to the training group(More)
BACKGROUND Admission to the intensive care unit is associated with sustained loss of muscle mass, reduced quality of life and increased mortality. Early rehabilitation measures may counteract this process. New approaches to rehabilitation while the patient remains in bed are whole-body vibration alone and whole-body vibration with a dumbbell. The aims of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to investigate whether whole-body vibration training (WBVT) can be applied beneficially within an outpatient low frequency exercise program. METHODS In a prospective, controlled, randomized study, WBVT effectiveness and safety were investigated in COPD stage II-IV patients undergoing a 3-month training program.(More)
Objective Acute exacerbation of COPD (AECOPD) provides for patients a significant hazard and is crucial for the prognosis. Data on the effects of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) on the frequency of reexacerbations after AECOPD are inconsistent. A prospective, case-control study was conducted with the aim of measuring the impact of PR on the frequency of(More)
We read with great interest the article by Wollersheim and colleagues who examined whole-body vibration (WBV) in intensive care unit patients [1]. Hemodynamic characteristics were monitored during WBV application. The study underscores previous findings showing that no significant changes in heart rate, blood pressure, or oxygen saturation occurred during(More)
The aim of the study was to assess Oxford Miniature Vaporizer output when mounted in-circuit during the maintenance phase of anaesthesia, using isoflurane, controlled ventilation and a fresh gas flow rate less than 1 l/min. Twenty patients of ASA Physical Status I and II were recruited from routine general surgical lists. All patients were paralysed and(More)
PURPOSE To analyze time-domain, spectral, and fractal properties of speed regulation during half-marathon racing. METHODS In 21 male experienced runners, high-resolution data on speed (V), stride frequency (SF), and stride length (SL) were assessed during half-marathon competition (21,098 m). Performance times, time- and frequency-domain variability,(More)
BACKGROUND A large proportion of COPD patients do not achieve the recommended level of physical activity. It is suggested that feedback on the level of activity by using an activity monitoring device (PAM) increases awareness and may stimulate patients to increase their physical activity in daily life. Our objective was to assess the validity and usability(More)
Objective Exercise training provides a cornerstone of pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) in COPD-patients. However, the components of the training are not yet fully investigated. We conducted a randomized controlled trial to investigate the effectiveness of a sensory-motoric training (SMT) in comparison to a conventional strength training (KT) according to the(More)
