Derivation and validation of a simple clinical risk-model in heart failure based on 6 minute walk test performance and NT-proBNP status - Do we need specificity for sex and beta-blockers? (2009)
Journal Article
Frankenstein, L., Goode, K., Ingle, L., Remppis, A., Schellberg, D., Nelles, M., …Zugck, C. (2011). Derivation and validation of a simple clinical risk-model in heart failure based on 6 minute walk test performance and NT-proBNP status - Do we need specificity for sex and beta-blockers?. International journal of cardiology, 147(1), 74-78. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2009.08.005

BACKGROUND It is unclear whether risk prediction strategies in chronic heart failure (CHF) need to be specific for sex or beta-blockers. We examined this problem and developed and validated the consequent risk models based on 6-minute-walk-test and N...

Impact of different diagnostic criteria on the prevalence and prognostic significance of exertional oscillatory ventilation in patients with chronic heart failure (2009)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Isted, A., Witte, K. K., Cleland, J. G. F., & Clark, A. L. (2009). Impact of different diagnostic criteria on the prevalence and prognostic significance of exertional oscillatory ventilation in patients with chronic heart failure. European journal of cardiovascular prevention and rehabilitation, 16(4), (451-456). doi:10.1097/HJR.0b013e32832a4f54. ISSN 1741-8267

Introduction Exertional oscillatory ventilation (EOV) occurs in many patients with chronic heart failure. Two different definitions of EOV have been proposed by Corra and Leite. We aimed to compare the prevalence of EOV and its prognostic significanc...

A review of the six-minute walk test: Its implication as a self-administered assessment tool (2009)
Journal Article
Ingle, L. (2009). A review of the six-minute walk test: Its implication as a self-administered assessment tool. European journal of cardiovascular nursing : journal of the Working Group on Cardiovascular Nursing of the European Society of Cardiology, 8(3), 232-234. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejcnurse.2009.01.002

I read with interest the review article by Du and colleagues published in the European Journal of Cardiovascular Nursing in July 2008. The concept that the six-minute walk test (6-MWT) could be adapted as a patient-reported outcome measure of functio...

An evaluation of a primary and secondary care cardiac rehabilitation service pathway (2009)
Journal Article
Trotman-Beasty, A., McKenna, J., & Ingle, L. (2009). An evaluation of a primary and secondary care cardiac rehabilitation service pathway. British journal of cardiac nursing, 4(4), 178-184

Background: The aim of the study was to assess the synergy between patient treatment pathways in two large primary care trusts (PCTs) and general practices for patients following myocardial infarction (MI) and after completing a 12-week cardiac rehab...

Prognostic Significance of the Double Pressure Reserve in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure (2009)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., & Clark, A. (2009). Prognostic Significance of the Double Pressure Reserve in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure. Open Heart Failure Journal, 2, 1-5. https://doi.org/10.2174/1876535100902010001

Abstract: Introduction: The double pressure reserve (DPR) has recently been shown to have greater prognostic power than metabolic equivalents, heart rate indices, and systolic blood pressure in healthy subjects. It is unclear whether DPR offers any... Read More about Prognostic Significance of the Double Pressure Reserve in Patients with Chronic Heart Failure.

Physical activity readiness in patient withdrawals from cardiac rehabilitation. (2009)
Journal Article
Rivett, M. J., Tsakirides, C., Pringle, A., Carroll, S., Ingle, L., & Dudfield, M. (2009). Physical activity readiness in patient withdrawals from cardiac rehabilitation. British Journal of Nursing, 18(3), 188-191. https://doi.org/10.12968/bjon.2009.18.3.39050

BACKGROUND: Adherence to cardiac rehabilitation (CR) programmes may be an important element for improving and maintaining physical activity (PA) behaviour in secondary prevention. Little is known about the PA behaviour in patients who have withdrawn... Read More about Physical activity readiness in patient withdrawals from cardiac rehabilitation..

Hospital versus community-based phase III cardiac rehabilitation. (2009)

The prognostic value of individual NT-proBNP values in chronic heart failure does not change with advancing age (2009)
Journal Article
Frankenstein, L., Clark, A. L., Goode, K., Ingle, L., Remppis, A., Schellberg, D., …Zugck, C. (2009). The prognostic value of individual NT-proBNP values in chronic heart failure does not change with advancing age. Heart, 95(10), 825-829. https://doi.org/10.1136/hrt.2008.158626

Background: It is unclear whether age-related increases in N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) represent a normal physiological process - possibly affecting the prognostic power - of NT-proBNP - or reflect age-related subclinical pat...
