The effects of isometric hand-grip exercise (IHG) coupled with a period of postexercise circulatory occlusion (OCC; known to sustain exercise-induced increases in blood pressure while facilitating a decrease in heart rate) on left ventricular (LV) twist mechanics was examined. Two-dimensional speckle-tracking echocardiography was used to assess LV apical and basal rotation and LV twist in 19 healthy participants (23 ± 2 years old) at rest, during 3 min of IHG (performed at 40% maximal voluntary… CONTINUE READING
