Flashcards in SPT3 Deck (190)
Which gas is considered an important vasodilator of the blood vessels?
T/F: In a successfully revascularized patient, the exercise test provides additional
information before the patient starts a cardiac rehabilitation program
A typical treadmill graded exercise test for an individual with PAD would
begin at which speed?
T/F: A small number of patients with myocardial ischemia present with silent
T/F: Home-based programs have been considered successful interventions in
patients with PAD
Which of the following sequences are correct in the development of angina
Stiff left ventricle, Systolic emptying of left ventricle is
impaired, ECG abnormalities, Symptoms of angina
Design a clinical exercise test for the aerobic assessment of heart failure
For a patient with heart failure, I would have them do a 6
minute walk. I would make sure to record their distance
travelled, HR and RPE's this is so that we can tell just how hard
it is for the patient and ensure that they are not going to put
themselves at risk. Another thing that could be measured
would be their gas exchange to determine peak oxygen uptake.
Typical symptoms of leg pain in patients with claudication include
A and B correct
Which of the following benefits are possible after exercise training in
patients with coronary revascularization?
All of the above
-Greater total work performed
-Improved exercise capacity
-Improved cardiac performance at rest
-Increased peripheral muscular adaptations
T/F: Pacemakers that use an accelerometer may have a difficult time in
determining the heart rate response in exercise with an increased treadmill
T/F: Patients with heart failure may be able to weight train with resistances that
would allow one set of 12-15 repetitions to be completed
In ECG of patients with heart failure, which of the following are present?
Changes in Q-wave in leads V1, V2, V3, V4
T/F: In an ECG of a myocardial infarction, the ST segment will be at the
T/F: High-intensity interval training (HIIT) programs may be used as an exercise
program for individuals in early stages of cardiac rehabilitation
In the management of a myocardial infarction, which drug is considered an
There is an __ increase in mortality at 1 year for every 30-minute delay in
opening an infarct-related artery once symptoms begin
T/F: The United States contributes almost a third of the worldwide economic
burden of heart failure
T/F: Blood pressure should be monitored in individuals with a pacemaker while
T/F: Exercise testing is useful in determining the degree of functional limitations
in patients with PAD
Signs and symptoms such as difficulty sleeping flat are often found in
Why would a bench press be contraindicated in early phase cardiac
The valsalva maneuver must be avoided when patients are just
out of the hospital/starting cardiac rehab. If the patient was to
do a bench press they would be putting a lot of strain on their
chest. This is especially bad for those who have had open heart
surgery. This is because they have had their chest cracked open
and they should not be completing any upper body exercise for
at least the !rst 6 weeks.
The main contributor to a coronary syndrome is
T/F: Rhythm disorders that involve the SA node are classified as sick sinus
Which of the following frequencies of exercise is recommended for
someone exercising at a low intensity?
Stent therapy has a success rate of
Which of the following is the predominant factor responsible for increasing
cardiac output during exercise?
T/F: Individuals with PAD are at an increased risk for kidney disease
Which of the following should guide an exercise professional in the
development of an exercise prescription in an individual with a pacemaker?
T/F: Approximately 50% of all cardiovascular deaths are due to coronary heart
