  1. 1. Physical activity, visceral adipose tissue, and cardiovascular disease in older adults : associations and effects

    Author : Marcel Ballin; Peter Nordström; Johan Niklasson; Maria Hagströmer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; physical activity; exercise; obesity; stroke; myocardial infarction; death; aging; geriatrics; epidemiology; trial; Geriatrics; geriatrik; epidemiologi; Epidemiology; kardiologi; Cardiology; Public health; folkhälsa; physiotherapy; fysioterapi;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) poses a substantial public health burden and is the leading cause of mortality in older adults. With the population aging rapidly, interventions aimed at improving modifiable risk factors for CVD, such as physical inactivity and visceral obesity, could play an important role in reducing its burden, provided they are proven effective.

  2. 2. Physical activity among patients with cardiovascular disease : a predictor of hospital care utilisation and mortality in clinical work

    Author : Amanda Ek; Örjan Ekblom; Lena Kallings; Mats Börjesson; Joep Perk; Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular disease; Physical exercise; Sedentary behaviour; Physical activity; Survival; Mortality; Hospitalisation; Cardiology Service; Guideline adherence; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Guidelines highlight the importance of physical activity (PA) in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) within the healthcare sector. Previous studies have mainly focused on the effects of PA at moderate-vigorous intensity performed within exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR). READ MORE

  3. 3. Physical activity and exercise during curative oncological treatment : exploring the effects of exercise intensity and behaviour change support, safety, and patients’ and exercise professionals’ experiences

    Author : Anna Henriksson; Karin Nordin; Birgitta Johansson; Helena Igelström; Calin Radu; Yvonne Wengström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical exercise; Physical activity; Oncology; Cancer rehabilitation; Caring Sciences; Vårdvetenskap;

    Abstract : Aims: This thesis aimed to explore the effects of exercise intensity and behaviour change support (BCS), the safety of exercise, and experiences of exercise for both patients and exercise professionals during oncological treatment (e.g. neo/adjuvant chemotherapy, endocrine treatment, radiotherapy).

  4. 4. Physical activity in patients with heart failure : motivations, self-efficacy and the potential of exergaming

    Author : Leonie Klompstra; Tiny Jaarsma; Anna Strömberg; Felicity Astin; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: Adherence to recommendations for physical activity is low in patients with heart failure (HF). It is essential to explore to what extent and why patients with HF are physically active. READ MORE

  5. 5. Exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation, physical fitness, and physical activity in cardiac disease

    Author : Maria Borland; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation; exercise; physical fitness; physical activity; health-related quality of life; atrial fibrillation; heart failure;

    Abstract : Background: Evidence suggests that individualised exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation should be offered to patients with ischemic heart disease and chronic heart failure (HF) because it improves physical fitness and health-related quality of life (HR-QoL), and reduces cardiac mortality and hospital admissions. If physiotherapist-led exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (PT-X) can similarly improve physical fitness in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF), and improve physical activity levels in patients with chronic HF or permanent AF, has been sparsely studied.
