Participants' perceptions of a lifestyle approach to promoting physical activity: targeting deprived communities in Kingston-Upon-Hull (2006)
Journal Article
Wormald, H., Waters, H., Sleap, M., & Ingle, L. (2006). Participants' perceptions of a lifestyle approach to promoting physical activity: targeting deprived communities in Kingston-Upon-Hull. BMC public health, 6, https://doi.org/10.1186/1471-2458-6-202

Background: The health benefits of an active lifestyle have been extensively documented and generally accepted. In the UK, declining physical activity levels are a major contributing factor to a number of public health concerns such as obesity and co...

Clinical determinants of poor six-minute walk test performance in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and no major structural heart disease (2006)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Rigby, A. S., Nabb, S., Jones, P. K., Clark, A. L., & Cleland, J. G. (2006). Clinical determinants of poor six-minute walk test performance in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and no major structural heart disease. European journal of heart failure, 8(3), 321-325. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejheart.2005.08.006

Background: The clinical determinants of six-minute walk test (6-MWT) performance in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) have rarely been investigated, and it is not clear whether they differ from patients referred for the asse...

Poor relationship between exercise capacity and spirometric measurements in patients with more symptomatic heart failure (2005)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Shelton, R. J., Cleland, J. G., & Clark, A. L. (2005). Poor relationship between exercise capacity and spirometric measurements in patients with more symptomatic heart failure. Journal of cardiac failure, 11(8), 619-623. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.cardfail.2005.06.430

Background: The origin of exercise limitation in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) is multifactorial, and the relative contributions of different abnormalities may vary with severity of heart failure symptoms. The aim of the current study was... Read More about Poor relationship between exercise capacity and spirometric measurements in patients with more symptomatic heart failure.

The reproducibility and sensitivity of the 6-min walk test in elderly patients with chronic heart failure (2005)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Shelton, R. J., Rigby, A. S., Nabb, S., Clark, A. L., & Cleland, J. G. (2005). The reproducibility and sensitivity of the 6-min walk test in elderly patients with chronic heart failure. European Heart Journal, 26(17), 1742-1751. https://doi.org/10.1093/eurheartj/ehi259

Aims: The 6-min walk test (6-MWT) is used to estimate functional capacity. However, in elderly patients with chronic heart failure (CHF): (i) 1 year reproducibility of the 6-MWT; (ii) sensitivity of the 6-MWT to self-perceived changes in symptoms of...
