Official position statements describe and endorse the need and effect of exercise therapy and increased physical activity in children and adolescents with obesity. Physical therapists working in private and home care settings (first-line treatment) can play a key role in maximizing participation rates in exercise and physical...

Abstract The purpose of this review was to describe the occurrence of prognostic variables as derived from cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in patients with heart failure (HF), presenting exercise oscillatory ventilation (EOV) compared to patients without EOV. The effect of EOV on peak oxygen consumption (VO2), minute ventilation/carbon dioxide production (VE/VCO2) slope, oxygen uptake efficiency slope (OUES), rest and peak pulmonary end-tidal carbon dioxide pressure (PETCO2) was meta-ana...
