    Effects of inspiratory muscle training on postural stability, pulmonary function and functional capacity in children with cystic fibrosis: A randomised controlled trial
    (2019-03-01) Zeren, MELİH; Cakir, ERKAN; Gurses, HÜLYA NİLGÜN; ZEREN, MELIH; ÇAKIR, ERKAN; GÜRSES, HÜLYA NILGÜN
    Background: Previous research has found conflictive results regarding the benefits of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) for cystic fibrosis (CF) patients. Also, involvement of postural stability is a rising concern in chronic lung diseases but its role in CF patients is poorly understood. Our aim was to investigate the effects of IMT in CF patients as well as analysing the factors which may be related to postural stability.

    The relationship of sit-to-stand tests with 6-minute walk test in healthy young adults

    The aim of this study was to evaluate the timed sit-to-stand (STS) test performances of healthy young adults and to investigate the relationship of timed STS tests with 6-minute walk test (6MWT). A cross-sectional study was performed. A total of 40 healthy volunteers (mean age: 21.7 +/- 1.2 years) were evaluated with 10, 30, and 60seconds STS tests and 6MWT. Fatigue and shortness of breath were rated using Borg category-ratio scale (CR10) before and after each test. Weekly energy expenditures of volunteers were calculated using International Physical Activity Questionnaire. 30 and 60seconds STS tests were moderately (r=0.611 and r=0.647, respectively) (P.05). Borg fatigue scores after 10, 30, and 60seconds STS tests were weakly correlated with fatigue score after 6MWT (r=0.321, r=0.378, and r=0.405, respectively) (P<.05). Weekly energy expenditure (MET-min/week) was moderately correlated with 10, 30, and 60seconds STS tests and 6MWT (r=0.533, r=0.598, r=0.598, and r=0.547, respectively) (P<.001). Considering the statistically significant relationship between timed STS tests and 6MWT, any of the timed STS tests may be used for a quick and alternative measurement of physical performance and functional capacity in healthy young adults.

    Relationship of respiratory muscle strength, pulmonary function, and functional capacity with quality of life in patients with atrial fibrillation.
    (2018-01-01) DEMIR, R; Zeren, MELİH; Gurses, HÜLYA NİLGÜN; YIGIT, Z; ZEREN, MELIH; GÜRSES, HÜLYA NILGÜN
    Objective: To examine the relationship of pulmonary parameters and functional capacity with quality of life (QoL) in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). Methods: Thirty-six patients with chronic AF were included in this cross-sectional study. QoL was assessed with the Medical Outcomes Survey 36-item Short Form (SF-36) and Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ). Respiratory muscle strength and pulmonary function were also measured. Functional capacity was assessed with the 6-min walk test (6MWT). The Borg CR10 Scale was used to determine the resting dyspnea and fatigue levels. Results: The SF-36 physical component summary score was correlated with the maximum inspiratory pressure (r ¼ 0.517), maximum expiratory pressure (r ¼ 0.391), 6MWT distance (r ¼ 0.542), resting Borg dyspnea score (r ¼ 0.692), and resting Borg fatigue score (r ¼ 0.727). The MLHFQ total score was correlated with the maximum inspiratory pressure (r ¼ 0.542), maximum expiratory pressure (r ¼ 0.384), 6MWT distance (r ¼ 0.535), resting Borg dyspnea score (r ¼ 0.641), and resting Borg fatigue score (r ¼ 0.703). The resting Borg fatigue score was the significant independent predictor of the SF-36 physical component score and the MLHFQ total score. Conclusion: Respiratory muscle strength, functional capacity measured with the 6MWT, and resting symptoms including dyspnea and fatigue may have an impact on QoL in patients with AF.
