CONCLUSIONS: The study revealed a high prevalence of fatigue symptomatology among middle-aged and older adults with SB. Symptoms of anxiety and depression were more common than among persons with chronic SCI and norms. SB follow-ups should include awareness of psychological distress and fatigue, and investigate pain and medication side effects among possible influencing factors.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONClinicians treating adult persons with SB should be aware of possible psychological distress and fatigue symptomatology among these patients.We suggest an initial screening for psychological distress and fatigue in per...

Although hemodialysis treatment is one of the main treatment methods in chronic kidney failure, it also causes many health problems. A variety of complementary and integrative therapies are used to relieve or minimize hemodialysis symptoms. Fatigue (60%-97%) is also one of these problems. Therefore, we have conducted a systematic review to determine the effect of complementary and integrative therapies on fatigue in hemodialysis patients. Relevant studies published from 2005 to 2019, in PubMed, EBSCOhost, ScienceDirect, and Cochran Library databases have been reviewed. In the study, initially, 21 039 pieces of data were ob...

Post-polio syndrome (PPS) is characterised by fatigue, pain and neuromuscular weakness often decades after the initial poliovirus infection.This retrospective study evaluated outcomes from the only British residential self-management programme for patients with PPS. This six day, group-based programme also delivered individually tailored "fatigue" and "exercise" management advice. Statistical comparisons of results were made via paired t-test and Wilcoxon signed rank test.Over the course of 17 years, 214 participants [median age 62 (IQR 56-67ys), 63% female] attended the course. On completion, PPS relat...

Introduction: Over 66 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with COVID-19. Therefore, understanding their clinical evolution beyond hospital discharge is essential not only from an individual standpoint, but from a populational level. Objectives: To assess the impact of COVID-19 on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) 3 months after hospital discharge. Additionally, we screened for anxiety and depression and assessed important clinical outcomes. Methods: This was a single-centre cohort study performed in Sao Paulo (Brazil), in which participants were contacted by telephone to answer a short survey. EQ-5D...

Background: High exercise self-efficacy is required for optimal exercise training in both patients with COPD and chronic heart failure (CHF).Aim: To compare exercise self-efficacy, symptoms, functional capacity and health status in COPD and CHF patients, and explore the association of symptoms and exercise self-efficacy.Method: Baseline data from a self-management group-intervention on 150 primary care patients with COPD (n=60), CHF (n=60) and a possible double diagnosis (n=30). Exercise self-efficacy (Swedish SCI Exercise Self-Efficacy Score), dyspnea (mMRC), fatigue (Fatigue Score), pain (five-level question), anxiety an...

Dysfunctional breathing (DB) is recognised as a modifiable factor in asthma management, and a differential diagnosis for exercise induced breathlessness (EIB). Recognition of DB can prevent excessive use of drug therapy. Further characterisation of this population seeks to assist clinicians in guiding referral for breathing retraining.Consecutive referrals to a dysfunctional breathing physiotherapy clinic were audited between 06/18 and 05/20. Patients with incomplete data sets were omitted. 77 referrals were included (7-17y (median 12y)). 24 (31%) had a confirmed asthma diagnosis, and asthma had been investigated and exclu...
