BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study aims to compare the effects of combined resistance and aerobic exercise with a resistance programme alone on functional performance among haemodialysis patients. DESIGN The design was a randomized controlled trial. SETTING The setting was the dialysis unit of a Brazilian university hospital. PATIENTS Haemodialysis patients were assigned to one kind of intervention or another. INTERVENTION The patients were assigned to receive the resistance exercise… CONTINUE READING
