  1. 1. Assessment of Aerobic Capacity A Novel Rating Scale and Further Development of an Exercise Test including Analysis of Gas Exchange

    Author : Anita Wisén; Fysioterapi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; kinesitherapy; revalidation; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; Physical medicine; Time constant of V O2; Cycle ergometer; Perceived Capacity; Perceived exertion; Heart rate; Oxygen uptake; Reference values; Oxygen kinetics; Repeatability; Thresholds;

    Abstract : Different methods are proposed to assess the aerobic capacity. A novel scale, rating of perceived capacity (RPC) based on metabolic equivalents (METs) from 1 to 20, is presented. Selected MET values are linked to physical activities. READ MORE

  2. 2. Validity and reliability of a submaximal cycle ergometer test for estimation of maximal oxygen uptake

    Author : Frida Maria Eleonora Björkman; Örjan Ekblom; Tony Bohman; Åsa Tornberg; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is the highest obtained rate of oxygen consumption during a physically intense dynamic whole-body activity. VO2max is an important factor for many types of physical performance, as well as a strong independent predictor of health and longevity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Physical Fitness and Pregnancy

    Abstract : Objectives To assess physical fitness in pregnancy and to evaluate its effect on perceived health, back pain, blood pressure and duration of gestation. Also, to evaluate the effect of serum relaxin levels on blood pressure and duration of gestation. READ MORE

  4. 4. Exercise Testing in Firefighters : Work Capacity and Cardiovascular Risk Assessment in a Low-Risk Population

    Author : Anna Carlén; Eva Nylander; Mikael Gustafsson; Meriam Åström Aneq; Henrik Engblom; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background. Firefighting is one of the most physically demanding occupations and it requires a high cardiorespiratory fitness level. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methods for analysis of heart function

    Author : Håkan Kronander; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : There is a continuous demand for improvements in methods foranalysis of heart function. This thesis investigates both themeasurement of left ventricular (LV) volume for evaluating theheart function and the exercise electrocardiographic (ECG) testfor diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD).
