Conclusions: HIIT is an effective method to improve CRF in adolescents, irrespective of body composition. Notably, meta regression analysis identified that prolonged high volume HIIT programs are similarly effective to short term low volume HIIT programs. This becomes of particular interest for those involved in school curricula, where short HIIT exercise may provide a pragmatic adjunct to the health benefits of Physical Education (PE) lessons. © 2020 by the authors.

Methods: Electronic databases were searched from inception to January 2018 before conducting a random-effects meta-analysis to calculate pooled differences in means, effect size and 95% confidence intervals (CIs). Study heterogeneity was reported using Cochran’s Q and I2 statistic. Results: Overall, 32 studies (644 athletes; 582 controls) were included. Athletes had greater LV end-diastolic diameter (3.65 mm, 95% CI 2.66–4.64), interventricular septal thickness (1.23 mm, 95% CI 0.85–1.60), posterior wall thickness (1.20 mm, 95% CI 0.83–1.56), LV mass (72 g, 95% CI 46–98), LV mass index (28.17 g·m2, 95% CI 19.84–36.49) and stroke volume (13.59 mL, 95% CI 7.20–19.98) (all p < 0.01). Athletes had superior global diastolic function [ratio of early (E) to late (A) mitral inflow velocity (E/A) 0.18, 95% CI 0.13–0.24, p < 0.01; ratio of early (e′) to late (a′) diastolic annular tissue velocity (e′/a′) 0.23, 95% CI 0.06–0.40, p = 0.01], lower A (−8.20 cm·s−1, 95% CI −11.90 to −4.51, p < 0.01) and a′ (−0.72 cm·s−1, 95% CI −1.31 to −0.12, p = 0.02), and more rapid e′ (0.96 cm·s−1, 95% CI 0.05–1.86, p = 0.04). Meta-regression for chronological age identified that athlete–control differences, in the main, are maintained during advancing age. Conclusions: Athletic older men have larger cardiac dimensions and enjoy more favourable cardiac function than healthy, non-athletic counterparts. Notably, the athlete groups maintain these effects during chronological ageing. © 2018, The Author(s).]]> Thu 12 Sep 2019 16:01:58 AEST ]]> Benefits of pilates in Parkinson's Disease : A systematic review and meta-analysis http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14182 Thu 12 Dec 2019 11:53:17 AEDT ]]> Fraud detection for online banking for scalable and distributed data http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14419 Thu 11 Jun 2020 14:38:49 AEST ]]> Internal and external validity of the brief version of the multidimensional personality questionnaire : exploratory structural equation modelling http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14417 Thu 11 Jun 2020 14:17:25 AEST ]]> Naturally occurring potentially harmful elements in groundwater in makueni county, south‐eastern Kenya : effects on drinking water quality and agriculture http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14414 Thu 11 Jun 2020 12:46:50 AEST ]]> Special needs, special play?

Results: A network meta-analysis was performed on 15 eligible RCTs comprising 596 participants (321 treatment and 275 controls), including aerobic (n = 6), resistance (n = 5), and mind-body (n = 4) exercise trials. Compared with controls, mind-body exercise showed the largest improvement on depressive symptoms (g = −0.87 to −1.38), followed by aerobic exercise (g = −0.51 to −1.02), and resistance exercise (g = −0.41 to −0.92). Notably, there were no statistically significant differences between exercise types: aerobic versus resistance (g = −0.10, PrI = −2.23, 2.03), mind-body versus aerobic (g = −0.36, PrI = −2.69, 1.97), or mind-body versus resistance (g = −0.46, PrI = −2.75, 1.83). Conclusions: These findings should guide optimal exercise prescription for allied health professionals and stakeholders in clinical geriatrics. Notably, clinically depressed older adults may be encouraged to self-select their preferred exercise type in order to achieve therapeutic benefit on symptoms of depression. In coalition with high levels of compliance, these data provide encouraging evidence for the antidepressant effect of either aerobic, resistance, or mind-body exercise as effective treatment adjucts for older adults presenting with clinical depression. © 2019]]> Mon 22 Jun 2020 13:36:48 AEST ]]> Communication training and its effects on carer and care-receiver outcomes in dementia settings : A systematic review http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:13985 Mon 21 Oct 2019 13:46:29 AEDT ]]> Occupational self-efficacy and psychological capital amongst nursing students : a cross sectional study understanding the malleable attributes for success http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14460 Mon 15 Jun 2020 10:13:50 AEST ]]> Television as a career motivator and education tool : a final-year nursing student cohort study http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14459 Mon 15 Jun 2020 10:06:49 AEST ]]> The optimization of loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) as a diagnostic tool for low-density, asymptomatic malaria infections http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14458 Mon 15 Jun 2020 10:01:27 AEST ]]> Organophosphate exposure and the chronic effects on farmers : a narrative review http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14455 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:59:50 AEST ]]> The development of a competency assessment standard for general practitioners in China http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14456 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:59:49 AEST ]]> The inter-relationship of diversity principles for the enhanced participation of older people in their care : a qualitative study http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14451 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:52:50 AEST ]]> Never afters : female friendship and collaboration in contemporary re-visioned fairy tales by women http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14444 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:40:36 AEST ]]> Learning large margin multiple granularity features with an improved siamese network for person re-identification http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14437 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:17:49 AEST ]]> Modelling the clogging of a field filtration system used for stormwater harvesting http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14428 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:17:49 AEST ]]> Energy sector development : system dynamics analysis http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14434 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:10:49 AEST ]]> Consistency of control performance in 3d overhead cranes under payload mass uncertainty http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14425 Mon 15 Jun 2020 09:03:50 AEST ]]> An application of high-dimensional statistics to predictive modeling of grade variability http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14423 Mon 15 Jun 2020 08:49:50 AEST ]]> Older women in Australia : facing the challenges of dual sensory loss http://researchonline.federation.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/vital:14422 Mon 15 Jun 2020 08:49:49 AEST ]]> Cultivation of low tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) cannabis sativa L. cultivation in Victoria, Australia : Do we know enough?

However, the contributions of the pattern, genetic, and environmental determinants of ambulatory blood pressure in African CKD have not been characterized. Understanding these interactions may help to develop interventions to prevent major cardiovascular events among people with CKD. Objective: The overarching objective of this study is to identify, document, and develop approaches to address related phenomic, genetic, and environmental determinants of ambulatory blood pressure patterns in African CKD and non-CKD hypertensive patients compared with normotensive controls. Methods: This is a longitudinal short-term follow-up study of 200 adult subjects with CKD and 200 each of age-matched hypertensives without CKD and apparently healthy controls. Demographic information, detailed clinical profile, electrocardiography, echocardiography, and 24-hr ambulatory blood pressure measurements will be obtained. Blood samples will be collected to determine albumin-creatinine ratio, fasting plasma glucose, lipid profile, electrolytes, urea and creatinine, C-reactive protein, serum homocysteine, fibroblast growth factor-23, and complete blood count, while 2 mL blood aliquot will be collected in EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) tubes and mixed using an electronic rolling system to prevent blood clots and subsequently used for DNA extraction and genetic analysis.
