Ultimately, improved clinical outcome is a major goal of exercise testing. Physiology of Exercise Testing Aerobic exercise, progressively increasing to maximal tolerance, is a common physiological stress that can elicit cardiovascular or pulmonary abnormalities not present at rest, while aiding in the determination of the adequacy of cardiac function. However, in addition to exercise, the cardiovascular response to physiological stress is also commonly evaluated through the use of pharmacological stress

62. Posttraumatic stress disorder: Often missed in primary care. (Abstract)

Posttraumatic stress disorder: Often missed in primary care. DeSean W, a 47-year-old man, returned to his primary care clinic with a new complaint of epigastric burning that had been bothering him for the past 4 months. He had tried several over-the-counter remedies, which provided no relief. He also remained concerned--despite assurances to the contrary at previous clinic visits--that he had contracted a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) after going to a bar one night 4 to 5 months ago. At 2 (...) other clinic visits since that time, STD test results were negative. At this current visit, symptoms and details of sexual history were unchanged since the last visit, with the exception of the epigastric pain. When asked if he thought he had contracted an STD through a sexual encounter the night he went to the bar, he emphatically said he would not cheat on his wife. Surprisingly, given his concern, he avoided further discussion on modes of contracting an STD. The physician prescribed ranitidine

66. MG53 is dispensable for T-tubule maturation but critical for maintaining T-tubule integrity following cardiac stress. Full Text available with Trip Pro

MG53 is dispensable for T-tubule maturation but critical for maintaining T-tubule integrity following cardiac stress. The cardiac transverse (T)-tubule membrane system is the safeguard for cardiac function and undergoes dramatic remodeling in response to cardiac stress. However, the mechanism by which cardiomyocytes repair damaged T-tubule network remains unclear. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that MG53, a muscle-specific membrane repair protein, antagonizes T-tubule damage (...) to protect against maladaptive remodeling and thereby loss of excitation-contraction coupling and cardiac function. Using MG53-knockout (MG53-KO) mice, we first established that deficiency of MG53 had no impact on maturation of the T-tubule network in developing hearts. Additionally, MG53 ablation did not influence T-tubule integrity in unstressed adult hearts as late as 10months of age. Following left ventricular pressure overload-induced cardiac stress, MG53 protein levels were increased

The Influence of Water Sorption of Dental Light-Cured Composites on Shrinkage Stress The contraction stress generated during the photopolymerization of resin dental composites is the major disadvantage. The water sorption in the oral environment should counteract the contraction stress. The purpose was to evaluate the influence of the water sorption of composite materials on polymerization shrinkage stress generated at the restoration-tooth interface. The following materials were tested: Filtek (...) and the dynamic of this process. The tested materials during polymerization generated shrinkage stresses ranging from 6.3 MPa to 12.5 MPa. Upon water conditioning (56 days), the decrease in shrinkage strain (not less than 48%) was observed. The decrease in value stress in time is material-dependent.

71. Mechanical effects of muscle contraction increase intravascular ATP draining quiescent and active skeletal muscle in humans Full Text available with Trip Pro

Mechanical effects of muscle contraction increase intravascular ATP draining quiescent and active skeletal muscle in humans Intravascular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) evokes vasodilation and is implicated in the regulation of skeletal muscle blood flow during exercise. Mechanical stresses to erythrocytes and endothelial cells stimulate ATP release in vitro. How mechanical effects of muscle contractions contribute to increased plasma ATP during exercise is largely unexplored. We tested (...) the hypothesis that simulated mechanical effects of muscle contractions increase [ATP](venous) and ATP effluent in vivo, independent of changes in tissue metabolic demand, and further increase plasma ATP when superimposed with mild-intensity exercise. In young healthy adults, we measured forearm blood flow (FBF) (Doppler ultrasound) and plasma [ATP](v) (luciferin-luciferase assay), then calculated forearm ATP effluent (FBF×[ATP](v)) during rhythmic forearm compressions (RFC) via a blood pressure cuff

73. Effects of α-lipoic Acid on mtDNA Damage after Isolated Muscle Contractions. (Abstract)

Effects of α-lipoic Acid on mtDNA Damage after Isolated Muscle Contractions. Although pharmacological antioxidants have previously been investigated for a prophylactic effect against exercise oxidative stress, it is not known if α-lipoic acid supplementation can protect against DNA damage after high-intensity isolated quadriceps exercise. This randomized controlled investigation was designed to test the hypothesis that 14 d of α-lipoic acid supplementation can attenuate exercise-induced (...) of contraction = 60° · s(-1)).Exercise increased mitochondrial 8-hydroxy-2-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG) concentration in both groups (P < 0.05 vs rest) with a concomitant decrease in total antioxidant capacity (P < 0.05 vs rest). There was a marked increase in blood total antioxidant capacity after oral α-lipoic acid supplementation (P < 0.05 vs nonsupplemented), whereas DNA damage (Comet assay and 8-OHdG), lipid peroxidation, and hydrogen peroxide increased after exercise in the nonsupplemented group only (P

77. Which causes more ergonomic stress: Laparoscopic or open surgery? (Abstract)

Which causes more ergonomic stress: Laparoscopic or open surgery? There is increasing awareness of potential ergonomic challenges experienced by the laparoscopic surgeon. The purpose of this study is to quantify and compare the ergonomic stress experienced by a surgeon while performing open versus laparoscopic portions of a procedure. We hypothesize that a surgeon will experience greater ergonomic stress when performing laparoscopic surgery.We designed a study to measure upper-body muscle (...) activation during the laparoscopic and open portions of sigmoid colectomies in a single surgeon. A sample of five cases was recorded over a two-month time span. Each case contained significant portions of laparoscopic and open surgery. We obtained whole-case electromyography (EMG) tracings from bilateral biceps, triceps, deltoid, and trapezius muscles. After normalization to a maximum voltage of contraction (%MVC), these EMG tracings were used to calculate average muscle activation during the open
