If a worker under a situation of high MD/AC index has the control to modify pace, intensity, load, and rest periods, then such a worker has control to modify exposure and therefore reduce metabolic demands of an activity to restore balance and recover from periods of exertion.
Although walking velocities varied greatly across previous studies, when individuals with TTA walk at similar velocities to nondisabled controls, they typically have 9-33 percent greater metabolic demand [17,23].
Sedation and barbiturate coma: The use of sedation and barbiturates to decrease metabolic demand and, in the case of barbiturates, control intracranial hypertension, is not well-supported by evidence.
Shivering should be avoided, because this may increase metabolic demand and increase oxygen consumption.
The gastrocentric model provides a framework for experimental tests of the hypothesis that sexual segregation is a consequence of the schedule of metabolic demands underlying sexual dimorphism.
Exercise is a potent stimulus that facilitates adaptive vascular responses to meet the metabolic demands of the working muscles.
Our findings appear to support previous studies that showed that arm unsupported stepper exercise produces a higher metabolic demand than arm-supported stepping [14-15].
In preparing for the metabolic demands of the game, it is important to focus on the specific energy system being stressed in the conditioning drills.
Heart failure is a chronic, progressive disease in which the ability of the heart to provide needed cardiac output weakens, thus impeding the heart's ability to pump enough blood to support the body's metabolic demands.
Shtivelman's discovery contributes to our understanding that tumor cells have increased metabolic demands, and could employ a variety of metabolic pathways to support their increased abnormal growth and proliferation.
A robust organism responds rapidly to newly imposed physical and metabolic demands.
Description: Heart failure is the inability of the heart to pump blood at a sufficient rate and volume to meet the metabolic demands of the body.
