Physical Deconditioning


  • RESULTS: There is conflicting evidence that cardiovascular deconditioning is present in CLBP and limited evidence for wasting of the multifidus muscle. No study examined the effectiveness of cardiovascular training specifically.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Pattern A is seen earlier, where the potential for cardiopulmonary disease is present, but not manifest.[mhmedical.com]
  • Data are presented as mean SD and statistical significance was achieved at p 0.05).[archive.rubicon-foundation.org]
  • Even though cardiac failure, anemia, renal failure, and musculoskeletal abnormalities may also present with breathlessness, these chronic diseases are rare among adolescents and asthma becomes the prevailing diagnosis.[journals.plos.org]

Loss of Appetite
  • –Digestive (gastrointestinal and bowel): loss of appetite, constipation. –Urinary: loss of bladder control (incontinence), bladder infection, electrolyte imbalance.[sralab.org]
Orthostatic Hypotension
  • In contrast to the exercise control group, the saline and dobutamine groups developed orthostatic hypotension, tachycardia, and accentuation of the renin-aldosterone response over the 3-wk treatment period; for the saline group, this is best explained[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Some of these effects include: –Cardiovascular (heart): decrease in cardiac output, faster heart rates at rest and with activity, decreased blood pressure in upright positions (orthostatic hypotension), decreased ability to exercise.[sralab.org]
Chest Pain
  • Stop exercising and notify your doctor if your heart rate remains elevated for more than five or six minutes after you stop exercising or if you experience any type of chest pain, nausea, shortness of breath or other signs of cardiac distress, warns the[livestrong.com]
  • Indeed, these may be the presenting features of acute illness — myocardial infarction may present with confusion rather than chest pain.[encyclopedia.com]
Incomplete Bladder Emptying
  • bladder emptying- I believe this statistic calculates the number for those using bedpans and not having restroom privileges though ).[katertots.com]


  • Our findings indicate that 24 h of HDBR minimized the impact of diuretic treatment on baseline autonomic and cardiovascular variables.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Exercise, hemodynamic, and metabolic studies were performed at base line and at the termination of the 3-wk treatment period.[jci.org]


  • […] overweight/obesity, insulin resistance, hypertension, and dyslipidemia—the latter as depressed high-density lipoprotein cholesterol and elevated triglycerides—are strongly associated with physical deconditioning, which is common after SCI/D and worsens the prognosis[link.springer.com]
