Home-Based, Moderate-Intensity Exercise Training Using a Metronome Improves the Breathing Pattern and Oxygen Saturation During Exercise in Patients With COPD.

J Cardiopulm Rehabil Prev 2018 Nov;38(6):E16-E18

Biomedical Sport Studies Center, University of Ferrara, Italy.

Purpose: One of the well-known but less-investigated effects of pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the change in breathing pattern toward a more efficient one (higher tidal volume [VT], lower breathing frequency). Evidence suggests this change can be obtained only with supervised, high-intensity exercise training (ExTr). However, some patients either do not have such programs available or are unable to exercise at higher intensity. Read More

Health Locus of Control Is Associated With Physical Activity and Other Health Behaviors in Cardiac Patients.

J Cardiopulm Rehabil Prev 2018 Nov;38(6):394-399

Montreal Behavioural Medicine Centre, CIUSSS-NIM, Hopital du Sacre-Couer de Montreal, Canada (Drs Mercer, Lavoie, Arsenault, and Bacon); Department of Psychology, McGill University, Montreal, Canada (Mr Mercer and Dr Ditto); Department of Psychology, University of Quebec at Montreal, Canada (Dr Lavoie); Department of Psychology, University of Calgary, Canada (Dr Campbell); and Department of Exercise Science, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada (Drs Campbell and Bacon).

Purpose: Physical inactivity, smoking, and excessive alcohol use are well-recognized modifiable risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD), yet uptake of strategies to mitigate these poor health behaviors varies widely among patients with cardiovascular disease. Part of this variation may be explained by health locus of control (HLOC), defined as the extent to which individuals believe their health is a consequence of their own actions, chance, or the influence of others (eg, physicians).

Methods: A total of 599 cardiac outpatients (30% female, 61. Read More
