Six-Minute Walk Test as a Predictive Measure of Exercise Capacity in Adults with Type 2 Diabetes.

Cardiopulm Phys Ther J 2018 Jul;29(3):124-129

West Virginia University, Department of Human Performance - Exercise Physiology.

Objective: The 6 Minute Walk Test (6MWT) is a measure that is routinely used to assess a response to treatment for cardiopulmonary diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis and congestive heart failure. The measure has never been verified as a valid measure of exercise capacity in the highly prevalent patient population of type 2 diabetes (T2DM). This study investigated the correlation between the 6MWT and graded exercise testing (GXT) in an effort to validate the 6MWT as a quality tool for assessing exercise capacity in adults with T2DM.

Inspiratory Muscle Training in Patients with Prolonged Mechanical Ventilation: Narrative Review.

Cardiopulm Phys Ther J 2019 Jan;30(1):44-50

Departments of Physical Therapy University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, USA.

Patients with impending respiratory failure often require mechanical ventilation to optimize gas exchange. Although this form of assisted ventilation is required for survival, its persistent use results in diaphragm weakness and muscle fiber atrophy. There is strong evidence that mechanical ventilation alters the structure and function of the diaphragm, resulting in prolonged dependence on assisted ventilation and long-term consequences such as a delayed functional recovery, reduced quality of life and increased risk of mortality.

Use of a Nonexercise Estimate for Prestroke Peak Vo During the Acute Stroke Hospital Stay.

Cardiopulm Phys Ther J 2016 Jul;27(3):96-103

Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science, University of Kansas Medical Center, Kansas City, KS.

Purpose: For individuals with acute stroke, it is difficult to conduct an exercise test to assess peak oxygen consumption (peak Vo). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to use a clinically feasible tool for assessing prestroke peak Vo using a nonexercise estimation equation to test whether estimated prestroke peak Vo was related to the functional outcome measures at discharge from the hospital in individuals after an acute stroke. We hypothesized that the estimated prestroke peak Vo would be significantly related to discharge Physical Performance Test (PPT), 6-minute walk test (6MWT), and lower extremity Fugl-Meyer (LEFM) assessment.
