The effect of physical conditioning on an individual before and after suffering a myocardial infarction [sic] by John Naughton( Book )

3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Personnel engaged in aviation activities are not exempted from the development of coronary heart disease: a 54 year old white male suffered an acute inferoseptal myocardial infarction after he had voluntarily taken part in a regular exercise program designed to improve the conditions of existing hypertension, over-weight and hypercholesterolemia. The post-infarct recuperation was uncomplicated. Four weeks later physical activities were slowly increased from day to day. A remarkable progress in restoring cardio-respiratory efficiency was observed when the training was switched from dull types of exercises to simply competitive ball games. The training response was similar to that observed in normal individuals. Twenty and 23 weeks post-infarct this individual was normotensive, had a normal serum cholesterol concentration and a near-normal body weight. In addition, his capacity for making cardio-respiratory adjustments to high metabolic demands exceeded the originally established level. (Author)

The present status of physical fitness in the Air Force by Bruno Balke( Book )

2 editions published in 1959 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Work capacity, a sensitive and realistic measure of "physical fitness," was determined on more than 500 military and civilian Air Force personnel for the purpose of collecting material for the standardization of physical performance capacity. A treadmill test permitted an evaluation of results in physical as well as in physiologic terms. On the basis of results, physiologic considerations, and observations of men at various stages of physical training, an arbitrary rating scale of work capacity is suggested. According to this pilot study 42 percent of the test population had to be rated as "poor" and 40 percent as "fair." Only 18 percent could be considered as having a "good" or better physical condition. Sedentary living habits, more than aging or other factors, were apparently the main antagonists of good physical fitness

The physiologic effects of hypodynamics induced by water immersion by Duane E Graveline( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Body immersion in water was used to produce an experimental situation in which the normal weight sensation was altered and in which slow movements were effortless. The hypodynamic effects of such immersion on orthostatic tolerance, on cardio-respiratory adaptability to physical stress, and on other biologic and psychophysiologic parameters were studied on one human subject in experiments of 2 and 7 days duration, respectively. Pronounced functional deterioration resulted from the hypodynamic situation in both experiments; cardiovascular reflexes were severely disturbed and muscular tone was diminished. The extensive biochemical studies of blood and urine showed marked deviations from the normal. Psychomotor effectiveness, tested on a complex systems task, was impaired noticeably. The need for sleep appeared to be markedly reduced during the periods of water immersion
