Towards the establishment of a worker-centered framework to physically prepare firefighters: The evaluation of movement and the transfer of training
(University of Waterloo, 2013-01-23)
Firefighter injuries are a billion dollar problem every year with an even larger human impact. Substantial efforts have been made to reduce the associated costs, yet many of the injuries sustained are the director result ...
Exercise, Shear Stress, and Flow-Mediated Dilation of Human Conduit Arteries
(University of Waterloo, 2009-12-22)
Flow-mediated dilation (FMD) refers to the relaxation of vascular smooth muscle and the subsequent dilation of the vessel in response to increases in shear stress on the endothelial lining accompanying increases in blood ...
Effect of arterial blood perfusion pressure on vascular conductance and muscle blood flow at rest and exercise
(University of Waterloo, 2012-05-01)
The adaptations of vessel diameter represented by vascular conductance (VC), muscle blood flow (MBF) and oxygen delivery (DO2est) were investigated during rest and exercise using the effects of gravity to manipulate ...
ROLE OF SECOND MESSENGER SIGNALING PATHWAYS IN THE REGULATION OF SARCOPLASMIC RETICULUM CALCIUM-HANDLING PROPERTIES IN THE LEFT VENTRICLE AND SKELETAL MUSCLES OF DIFFERENT FIBRE TYPE COMPOSITION
(University of Waterloo, 2007-02-09)
The overall objective of this thesis was to examine mechanisms involved in the acute regulation of sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+-handling properties by second messenger signaling pathways in skeletal and cardiac muscle. ...
