Can inspiratory muscle training benefit patients after stroke? A systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

CONCLUSION: Inspiratory muscle training can be considered as an effective intervention for improving pulmonary function and cardiopulmonary endurance, and reducing pulmonary infection incidence in patients after stroke. PMID: 32493056 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In conclusion, sitting for prolonged periods of time without interruption is unfavorably associated with DBP and HDL cholesterol. Exercise Slows Inappropriate Growth of Blood Vessels in a Mouse Model of Macular Degeneration https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/07/exercise-slows-inappropriate-growth-of-blood-vessels-in-a-mouse-model-of-macular-degeneration/ Excessive growth of blood vessels beneath the retina is a proximate cause of blindness in conditions such as macular degeneration. Researchers here provide evidence for physical activity to be influential in the pace at which this process of tissue...

Background/Hypothesis: Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is used in the assessment of function and prognosis of cardiopulmonary health in children with cardiac and pulmonary diseases. Techniques, such as cardiac MRi, and PET-scan, can be performed simultaneously with exercise testing. Thus, it is desirable to have a broader knowledge about children’s normal cardiopulmonary function in different body postures and exercise modalities. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of different body positions on cardiopulmonary function in healthy subjects performing CPETs.Materials and Methods: Thirty-one he...

Conclusions: In non-ambulatory stroke survivors, aerobic walking exercise is feasible and safe. Also, the results are promising and suggest that aerobic walking exercise may improve lung function; more data are needed. PMID: 31622173 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusion: We compared the relationship between the SGA and the spirometry as certified pulmonary function test. The SGA data were statistically significant and reliable for pulmonary function assessment in stroke patients. It will therefore be useful during rehabilitation to improve pulmonary function and clinical monitoring in stroke patients. PMID: 30519571 [PubMed - in process]

ConclusionThe 12-week tai chi exercise did not have an obvious beneficial effect on cardiac structure, cardiac function and static lung function in older community-dwelling adults at risk of ischemic stroke. The study with a longer duration of intervention should be necessary. (Trial registration No. ChiCTR-TRC-13003601)

Background: Previous research has shown that expiratory muscle strength training (EMT) increases voluntary cough strength and improves swallowing function in patients with Parkinson's disease. However, these effects of EMT in dysphagia and aspiration pneumonia after stroke are still unclear. The purpose of this study was to identify whether EMT provide effects on cough strength and swallowing function in stroke patients with dysphagia.Methods: Twenty-one stroke patients with dysphagia were recruited. We used threshold loading device for EMT, with load of 75% of their maximum expiratory pressure (PEmax). The patients perfor...
