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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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."

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

The EEG report of my 4 months baby boy is "non-specific asymmetric finding in drowsy state. However, other activities are normal. 

Is it ok?

Talk to neuro: Eeg results are inscrutable. From the sounds of it, it doesn't sound very impressive, but truthfully, the neurologist will make better sense of this.

Does sexual activity widen the window period? Would it change the outcome when testing based on a specific event that is of worry?

Does sexual activity widen the window period? Would it change the outcome when testing based on a specific event that is of worry?

Rethinking Wording?: Your questions, quite frankly are getting more and more incomprehensible. Sex alone changes nothing about an HIV test. Sex that exposes you to HIV is a new exposure and thus a new testing window has to start. But, sexual activity without exposure to hvi does not in any way change the HIV exposure testing window. ...Read more

Does weight training build endurance?

Does weight training build endurance?

Specific: Lighter weights with many reps will help build endurance for that specific movement. Curls will not help you run longer. Being stronger in the upper body will allow you to maintain better form longer and keep you going longer (if your legs permit) by not fatiguing the upper body as quickly. Dynamic weight training will build strength over a greater range of movements. Good Luck ...Read more

Can I tell me how I can improve running endurance?

Slowly and over time: The best way to improve running endurance, as defined by your ability to keep going for a half hour, hour, two hours, three hours, and beyond, is to gradually build up at an easy pace from whereever you are at. Run at a pace where you can talk, supplement with gels on longer runs, and aim for 3-4 runs a week. Hal higdon has great programs on his website (free) for runners at all levels. Good luck! ...Read more

Why is my running endurance getting worse over time?

More Info: If you are fifty and asking this question, you should get the book "Running Past Fifty" by Richard Benyo. Not sure if it is still out there, as it was published in 1998 by Human Kinetics. Is it your speed or time or distance. Only very few keep their speed past 50. Distance and time endurance take longer to achieve and maintain. Rest is critical, recovery takes much longer.(63,Level I USAT coach) ...Read more

What is the fastest way I can increase my endurance and speed?

What is the fastest way I can increase my endurance and speed?

Two different goals?: The best way to increase your enduance is
to run whatever you can comfortably do
and increase that amount by about 10% on a weekly basis. That will help you be able
to run further.
Now if you want to run faster, you must work on speed training.
That will involve a combination of short
sprints of about 60-90 seconds with 90% intensity and shorter 10-15 seconds
sprints at almost top speed. ...Read more

Can you explain if it's true smoking can slow up your endurance?

It can impair your: Endurance, because it reduces the oxygen level in your body while increasing the carbon monoxide in your body, also causes blood vessels to clamp down, causing deprivation of oxygen from muscles and other important tissues. Exercise can partially overcome those problems, but does not eliminate them. It also causes emphysema, bronchitis, heart attacks, strokes and many cancers. Plus other damage. ...Read more
