Another term for cardiorespiratory endurance exercise is?

Another term for cardiorespiratory endurance exercise is?

All kinds: Cardio...Aerobic... Are the two terms I usually hear.

Tolerance (Definition)

When one takes a drug, such as heroin or alcohol, repeatedly, 'tolerance' develops because more of the drug is needed to give the same effect on the body/brain; e.g. Liver enzymes r stimulated to metabolize the drug faster and faster. There may be a strong genetic predisposition to addiction, some studies suggesting that 1 of 10 people will become dependent on alcohol or some ...Read more

What cardiorespiratory diseases are caused or influenced by the environment?

What cardiorespiratory diseases are caused or influenced by the environment?

Nature vs nurture: I'll focus on lungs. Cancer can be due to tobacco exposure., even 2nd hand Asbestos too. Emphysema can also be due to tobacco. Asthma exacerbation can be due to air borne allergens especially pollen. Smog doesn't help. Influenza outbreaks can be thought of as a result of close quarters, certainly exposure to ill. I'm sure my colleagues will come up w/more.

Anyone know what is a test of cardiorespiratory fitness?

Anyone know what is a test of cardiorespiratory fitness?

MVO2max: In liters/minute is probably the best, although it requires "maximal exertion" which can be risky in populations at risk for heart disease. Cycling, walking, running, treadmill, stepping or so-called "sub-maximal protocols" are often used in that they don't require all-out effort to estimate fitness levels.

How do you determine someone's cardiorespiratory fitness level?

How do you determine someone's cardiorespiratory fitness level?

Many different types: Of test. For example, in the Cooper test, you run as far as possible within 12 minutes. This distance is then utilized in a formula to calculate your VO2 max or your maximal oxygen uptake, which is a measure of your aerobic capacity.

What is the difference between cardiac arrest and cardiorespiratory arrest?

What is the difference between cardiac arrest and cardiorespiratory arrest?

Specificity...: Cardiac arrest means the heart has stopped beating whereas cardiopulmonary arrest means the heart has stopped beating and the person is not breathing. The latter is more specific but if the heart has stopped, the person will not be breathing. It is possible to have a respiratory arrest and the heart is still beating but if the heart stops, breathing stops, too.

Why is cardiorespiratory fitness important?

Why is cardiorespiratory fitness important?

So many benefits: It helps optimize the function of your heart, lungs and vascular system. These are pretty important organ systems. Your body is an "organic" machine and exercise really helps keep it "running" smooth. This "efficiency" from exercise helps minimize risk of certain disease, like heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, just to name a few.

How is cardiorespiratory fitness measured well?

How is cardiorespiratory fitness measured well?

V02 Max: "...Vo2 max. Or maximum oxygen uptake, is considered the gold standard of cardiovascular, pulmonary, and muscle cell fitness. It is usually standardized per body weight and expressed in milliliters of oxygen per kilogram of body weight per minute, and is the maximum amount of oxygen your body (basically your muscles) can utilize." http://www.

What are the exercises that improve cardiorespiratory fitness?

What are the exercises that improve cardiorespiratory fitness?

Aerobic exercise: Aerobic exercise improves cardiorespiratory fitness. Brisk walks, cycling, swimming, running, etc - activities that get you breathing harder and increases your heart rate done at apace that can be sustained for at least 20 minutes without a break. If you're just starting out it may only be a walk but as your fitness improves it moves to a fast arm pumping walk lasting up to an hour.

Describe how caffeine can affect your stress level. How does it affect your cardiorespiratory system?

Describe how caffeine can affect your stress level. How does it affect your cardiorespiratory system?

Caffeine = stimulant: So it adds to physiological arousal that stress can produce. It will increase heart rate, alertness, and insomnia in some people. It can decrease fatigue and improve concentration. If you have high stress or anxiety, caffeine would not be recommended.

Can being bedridden for several months lead to total cardio respiratory failure and destruction of major organs? I know it always causes DVT and PE.

Can being bedridden for several months lead to total cardio respiratory failure and destruction of major organs? I know it always causes DVT and PE.

Saddle embolism/pe: Prolonged immobility can result in deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism as you mentioned, if the pulmonary embolism is large enough it can cause what is known as a saddle embolus which can obstruct the main pulmonary artery and can result in cardiac arrest

What does Aerobic and resistance exercise mean?

What does Aerobic and resistance exercise mean?

See answer: Aerobic exercise (aka cardiovascular exercise) is various sustained exercise (jogging, rowing, swimming, cycling, etc) that stimulates and strengthens the heart and lungs, thereby improving the body's endurance and utilization of oxygen. Resistance exercise is designed to increase the body's strength, power, and muscular endurance (free weights, weight machines, body weight, elastic bands, etc).

Is endurance exercise better for mental cognition than strength exercise?

Is endurance exercise better for mental cognition than strength exercise?

Best=what you'll do!: Yes, endurance/other activity that raises hr is better than simply lifting weights, eg. But the regimen need not be overly strenuous. Even walking has been shown to have beneficial effects on cognitive function of "seniors" (note the numerous articles by art kramer, phd, and colleagues). So it is best to select or continue an activity that is enjoyable and engage in it on a regular basis.

How to increase endurance and stamina through exercise and what type of nutrition would be most suitable and what type of food to avoid for a 18 year?

How to increase endurance and stamina through exercise and what type of nutrition would be most suitable and what type of food to avoid for a 18 year?

Long question: It's hard to give you a good answer in 400 characters - suggest you adopt a regular program of aerobic activity for minimum 20 minutes/day then gradually increase to 1 hr/day. Nutrition has a lot of lore- but abundant fresh fruits and vegetables, minimize sources of animal fat, and lots of fiber in your diet are all good ideas.
