Correlation coefficients (CCs) were converted to Z scores via Fisher's z values for the analysis of summary effects, using a random-effects model. Results: Twelve studies were included in the systematic review. The meta-analysis showed a negative correlation between cfPWV and LPA (CC -0.16; 95% CI: -0.29 to -0.03; p=.02) and MVPA (CC -0.16; 95% CI: -0.26 to -0.06; p<.01), and a positive relationship between cfPWV and SB (CC 0.23; 95% CI: 0.12 to 0.35; p<.01). Conclusions: Time spent in light and moderate physical activities is associated with lower arterial stiffness, while time spent in SB is related to higher arterial stiffness. It suggests that PA at any intensity is favorable for arterial stiffness, whereas SB leads to increased arterial stiffness. Considering that cfPWV has an independent prognostic value, these associations may have important clinical implications.]]> Tue 10 Mar 2020 13:22:16 AEST ]]> Blood flow during passive leg movement: impact of vascular disease and nitrate supplements http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:29103 Thu 30 Jan 2020 10:36:56 AEST ]]> Remote ischemic preconditioning prevents reduction in brachial artery flow-mediated dilation after strenuous exercise http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:14930 0.30). In the sham trial, FMD changed from 5.1 (4.4 -5.9) to 3.7% (2.6-4.8) following the 5-km TT (P =0.02). In the RIPC trial, FMD changed negligibly from 5.4 (4.4-6.4) post-IPC and 5.7% (4.6-6.8) post 5-km TT (P =0.60). Baseline diameter, SRAUC, and time-to-peak diameter were all increased following the 5-km TT (P < 0.05), but these changes did not influence the IPC-mediated maintenance of FMD. In conclusion, these data indicate that strenuous lower-limb exercise results in an acute decrease in brachial artery FMD of ~1.4% in healthy men. However, we have shown for the first time that prior RIPC of the lower limbs maintains postexercise brachial artery endothelium-dependent function at preexercise levels. © 2012 the American Physiological Society.]]> Thu 06 Jul 2017 11:14:01 AEST ]]> Potential of pharmacists to help reduce the burden of poorly managed cardiovascular risk http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:20268 Mon 25 Jul 2016 16:44:23 AEST ]]> Seven-day remote ischemic preconditioning improves local and systemic endothelial function and microcirculation in healthy humans http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:14928 0.05). IPC intervention did not alter CVC responses to local heating (P > 0.05). CONCLUSIONS Daily exposure to IPC for 7 days leads to local and remote improvements in brachial artery FMD and resting skin microcirculation that remain after cessation of the intervention and beyond the late phase of protection. These findings may have clinical relevance for micro-and macrovascular improvements. © 2014 American Journal of Hypertension, Ltd.]]> Mon 11 Jul 2016 10:18:02 AEST ]]> Acute Dietary Nitrate Supplementation Improves Flow Mediated Dilatation of the Superficial Femoral Artery in Healthy Older Males http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:28572 Mon 03 Jun 2019 11:49:39 AEST ]]> Effects of acute exercise on endothelial function in abdominal aortic aneurysm patients http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:23834 Fri 30 Nov 2018 15:04:32 AEST ]]> Reliability of arterial stiffness indices at rest and following a single bout of moderate‐intensity exercise in older adults http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:26060 Fri 29 May 2020 17:49:43 AEST ]]> Impact of eight weeks of repeated ischaemic preconditioning on brachial artery and cutaneous microcirculatory function in healthy males http://research.usc.edu.au/vital/access/manager/Repository/usc:14950 Fri 29 May 2020 14:33:42 AEST ]]>
