Neither exercise capacity nor muscle strength altered in the control group. Follow-up at 3 months showed that three of the control group and none of the exercise group had experienced subsequent exacerbations (P=0.06). Early rehabilitation via a home from hospital programme improved exercise tolerance, muscle (...) Extending a home from hospital care programme for COPD exacerbations to include pulmonary rehabilitation. The principals of rehabilitation medicine are to prevent muscle atrophy and improve mobility. Exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are associated with muscle atrophy and yet many patients do not undergo pulmonary rehabilitation until they have been in stable health for some time. We investigated the outcome of a supervised home exercise programme initiated

5648. The effect of protein and carbohydrate supplementation on strength training outcome of rehabilitation in ACL patients. Full Text available with Trip Pro

The effect of protein and carbohydrate supplementation on strength training outcome of rehabilitation in ACL patients. Patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury experience atrophy and weakening of the extensor as well as the hamstrings muscles at the injured leg. Especially, the weakness of the quadriceps muscle has been ascribed to hamper daily physical tasks. The purpose of the present study was therefore to investigate if nutrient supplementation during 12 weeks of conservative (...) rehabilitation strength training could enhance hypertrophy and strength of the quadriceps muscle in ACL-injured patients. Twenty-six ACL-injured men and women were included and randomly distributed into three supplementation groups: Protein+Carbohydrate (PC), Isocaloric-Carbohydrate (IC), or Placebo (PL), ingesting the supplementation immediately after each of 36 training sessions. Determined from images of thigh cross-sections (magnetic resonance imaging) the hypertrophy of the quadriceps muscle differed
