Cardiopulmonary Capacity in Children During Exercise Testing: The Differences Between Treadmill and Upright and Supine Cycle Ergometry
Conclusion: There are no differences in peak cardiac output between the upright bicycle test and supine bicycle tests. Heart rate and corrected peak V.O2 are lower in the supine test (0°) than the upright bicycle test. In the treadmill test, it is a higher absolute and relative peak V.O2. Despite the latter differences, we are convinced that both upright and supine bicycle tests are apt in the clinical setting when needed.

Compensation of Respiratory-Related Postural Perturbation Is Achieved by Maintenance of Head-to-Pelvis Alignment in Healthy Humans
Conclusion Extreme lung volume variations over vital capacity is associated with changes of thoracic curvature bringing it outside the normal range, which would theoretically compromise verticality. This is however fully compensated by adaptations of the cervical curvature and pelvic tilt to preserve adequate head-to-pelvis verticality and horizontal gaze alignment. Lung volume related postural perturbations increase with age, but age did not affect head-to-pelvis alignment. Future studies are needed to investigate potential postural dysfunction in chronic respiratory diseases that induce changes of lung volume or chest g...

A Comparative Study of Smartphone Game with Spirometry for Pulmonary Function Assessment in Stroke Patients.
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]

Effect of Tai Chi on Cardiac and Static Pulmonary Function in Older Community-Dwelling Adults at Risk of Ischemic Stroke: A Randomized Controlled Trial
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)

Effect of expiratory muscle strength training on cough and swallowing in patients with dysphagia following stroke
Conclusion: EMT had improved on not only the coughing function but also swallowing function for a stroke patient with dysphagia. These results suggest that EMT leads to improvement of airway clearance and reduction of aspiration risk, and may be expected as a means to prevent aspiration pneumonia.

Cardiopulmonary factors affecting 6-min walk distance in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies
In conclusion, impaired DLCO due to interstitial lung disease was suggested to be a fundamental parameter affecting exercise capacity, in addition to heart involvement, in patients with idiopathic inflammatory myopathies.

Change in pulmonary function and cardiorespiratory fitness following chemotherapy in testicular cancer patients - a pilot study
Conclusions: There was a substantial reduction in VO2max after BEP corresponding to three decades of physiological aging. This reduction may reflect a decrease in the patients’ cardiac function and oxygen carrying capacity, and not to reduced DLco.

Restrictive Spirometry Pattern is Associated with Increased Arterial Stiffness in Men and Women.
CONCLUSIONS: Both restrictive spirometry pattern and reduced FVC were associated with a higher risk of arterial stiffness, not only in males but also in females. Clinically, assessment of arterial stiffness might be considered in individuals with restrictive spirometry pattern. PMID: 28411113 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Ventilatory pattern in chronic stroke survivors
The aim of this cross-sectional study was to compare dynamic lung volumes in chronic stroke survivors (SS) with a control group (CG) of healthy people matched by age and sex.Forced spirometries were performed, in line with the international statements. The reference values were calculated with the predictive equations proposed by Roca et al,1986.T test was used to determine differences in dynamic lung volumes between SS and CG.A cluster analysis was practiced to classify 2 different groups within the SS regarding to their dynamic lung volumes.The average age in SS (n=33) was 56.9±15.7 years. There were no significan...

Long-Term Exposure to Ambient Fine Particulate Matter and Renal Function in Older Men: The Veterans Administration Normative Aging Study
Conclusions: In this longitudinal sample of older men, the findings supported the hypothesis that long-term PM2.5 exposure negatively affects renal function and increases renal function decline.

Impaired Pulmonary Diffusion in Heart Failure With Preserved Ejection Fraction
Conclusions Subjects with HFpEF display altered pulmonary function and gas exchange at rest and especially during exercise, which contributes to exercise intolerance. Novel therapies that improve gas diffusion may be effective to improve exercise tolerance in patients with HFpEF.

Nitrous oxide-based techniques versus nitrous oxide-free techniques for general anaesthesia.
CONCLUSIONS: Given the evidence from this Cochrane review, the avoidance of nitrous oxide may be reasonable in participants with pre-existing poor pulmonary function or at high risk of postoperative nausea and vomiting. Since there are eight studies awaiting classification, selection bias may exist in our systematic review. PMID: 26545294 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Decreased Tidal Volume May Limit Cardiopulmonary Performance During Exercise in Subacute Stroke.
CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that diminished VT in subacute stroke patients may limit performance during submaximal and peak effort of CPET. Rehabilitation professionals should consider methods for improving pulmonary function during stroke rehabilitation. PMID: 26034936 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

C-reactive protein: Its correlations with pulmonary function, physical capacity and anthropometric measurements in patients with metabolic syndrome
Conclusions: It was found negative relationships between CRP level with PF and PC. On the contrary, there were positive correlations of CRP with parameters of BC. We think that it can be provided decline in the CRP level and increment in PF improving the functional capacity and body composition with aerobic exercise in patients with MS.
