The Rating of Perceived Exertion at the Ventilatory Anaerobic Threshold in Patients with Coronary Heart Disease - Prescribing Implications for Exercise-Based Cardiovascular Rehabilitation: A CARE CR study (2020)
Journal Article
Nichols, S., Engin, B., Carroll, S., Buckley, J., & Ingle, L. (in press). The Rating of Perceived Exertion at the Ventilatory Anaerobic Threshold in Patients with Coronary Heart Disease - Prescribing Implications for Exercise-Based Cardiovascular Rehabilitation: A CARE CR study. Annals of physical and rehabilitation medicine,

Background: Exercise prescription guidelines for patients undertaking cardiovascular rehabilitation (CR) are based on heart rate training zones and ratings of perceived exertion (RPE). In the UK, guidelines indicate that patients should exercise at a...

Characterising the application of the “progressive overload” principle of exercise training within cardiac rehabilitation: a United Kingdom-based community programme (2020)
Journal Article
Khushhal, A., Nichols, S., Carroll, S., Abt, G., & Ingle, L. (in press). Characterising the application of the “progressive overload” principle of exercise training within cardiac rehabilitation: a United Kingdom-based community programme. PLoS ONE, 15(8), https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0237197

BACKGROUND: Recent concerns have cast doubt over the effectiveness of cardiac rehabilitation [CR] programmes for improving cardiorespiratory fitness [CRF] in patients with a history of cardiac disease in the United Kingdom [UK]. We aimed to character...

(2020). high INtensity Interval Training In pATiEnts with intermittent claudication (INITIATE): protocol for a multi-centre, proof-of-concept, prospective interventional study. BMJ open, 10(7), https://doi.org/10.1136/bmjopen-2020-038825

Introduction: The first-line recommended treatment for patients with intermittent claudication (IC), is a supervised exercise programme (SEP), which includes a minimum of 2 hours exercise per week over a 12-week period. However, provision, uptake, an...

Routine exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation does not increase aerobic fitness: A CARE CR study (2020)
Journal Article
Nichols, S., Taylor, C., Goodman, T., Page, R., Kallvikbacka-Bennett, A., Nation, F., …Ingle, L. (2020). Routine exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation does not increase aerobic fitness: A CARE CR study. International journal of cardiology, 305, 25-34. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2020.01.044

© 2020 The Authors Background: Recent evidence suggests that routine exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation (CR) may not lead to a substantial increase in estimated peak oxygen uptake (V̇O2peak). This could reduce the potential benefits of CR and expl... Read More about Routine exercise-based cardiac rehabilitation does not increase aerobic fitness: A CARE CR study.
