Effects of Upper Extremity Exercise Training on Peak Aerobic and Anaerobic Fitness in Patients After Transplantation
Warburton, Darren E.R., Sheel, A. William, Hodges, Alastair N.H., Stewart, Ian B., Yoshida, Eric M., Levy, Robert D., & McKenzie, Donald C. (2004) Effects of Upper Extremity Exercise Training on Peak Aerobic and Anaerobic Fitness in Patients After Transplantation. American Journal of Cardiology, 93(7), pp. 939-943.
We found that patients with transplants, regardless of transplant type, and sedentary control subjects experience significant increases in aerobic fitness after 10 weeks of Dragon boat training. However, the magnitude of improvement in aerobic fitness depends on the transplant type, with patients having cardiac transplant experiencing greater relative changes in response to training than patients with noncardiac transplant. It also appears that patients with cardiac and noncardiac transplants have an increased reliance on anaerobic energy systems during exercise conditions compared with healthy control subjects.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
