Exercise equipment instructions

Common Questions and Answers about Exercise equipment instructions


Avatar f tn These machines often include a treadmill, elliptical trainer, rowing machine and stationary bicycle. A basic exercise for beginners is walking on the treadmill. Consult the machine's instructions and begin to walk at a slow pace. Walking on the machine's belt feels different than walking on solid ground, so keep your pace slow until you're comfortable with the feeling.
1425157 tn?1311655279 I find it odd there was no concern for your wish to stop the test. The protocol is exercise until you reach a target heart rate, or until you: Feel moderate to severe chest pain Get too out of breath to continue Develop abnormally high or low blood pressure or an arrhythmia (an abnormal heartbeat) Become dizzy The technician will continue to check your heart functions and blood pressure after the test until they return to your normal levels.....
Avatar f tn He won't give me any medicine because he says its nothing wrong with me. I have been trying to exercise more and relieve stress too, but its so hard because it's just me, and I have alot to juggle everyday like most adults. Thanks!
Avatar m tn I'm not an expert but I believe you should follow your doctor's instructions and do all the necessary tests. Knowing the exact cause of your problem is essential. In my case, anxiety was the cause and a visit to a urologist made all the difference: I take Cialis + Vigamed (oral phentolamine) on demand and my sex life has been great for the last 3 or 4 years.
Avatar m tn He said 2-3 years ago he would probably have referred me for by-pass but now the equipment is available to do this and his experience with this kind of repair being extensive make this doable. His reputation around the cardiac community, nursing staff and other patients is top notch. My impressions of his skill and knowledge have been consistently very positive. I understand that there are risks but I am going to move ahead and have the cath procedure.
241234 tn?1220984156 By using the cane in these manners I am carrying around my exercise equipment all day long. The other shoulder work I did was lying in bed and just holding my affected arm straight up with my good arm. I would let go with the good armand see if I could keep it upright. When i could do that I start moving it around in tiny circles advancing to larger and lower circles. Eventually after about three months I could lift my arm flat off the bed from any direction to overhead.
184674 tn?1360864093 And by that, I don't mean that he can't pay attention or not follow instructions. He does quite well in those areas. What I mean is that he can't seem to apply himself enough to focus on keeping much self control, so it oftentimes seems like he doesn't want to do the things he's learned or follow through, when really he can, but his attention has to CONSTANTLY be redirected until he's completed the task.
Avatar n tn Some people become obsessed with their BP and take many readings per day. Some of the same people have very inaccurate equipment also. I don't know what type of BP monitoring device you have, and it really doesn't even matter in a way, because the best on the market can give false readings, especially when you keep repeating the test. Stay away from the wrist and finger BP measuring devices.
Avatar f tn LOL Before I get into the diet choices, about the exercise, you don't need any equipment to start a proper programme and definitely not a gym membership. You can rent or purchase exercise DVDs at your local video store. You probably can get them on-line too. Don't go for something that is going to make you pass out, start slowly with a beginner level exercise programme. If they ask you to use dumbbells or weights in the DVD, then you can use two cans of soup as dumbbells.
144586 tn?1284669764 911 call, making believe I am the 911 operator. Surprisingly, many fail this simple exercise. In the patient's room I have a loose-leaf book labeled: "Rules of the Road". The protocols for various emergencies and contingencies are spelled out clearly in this book. The most important rule I teach is NOT to call "security" in the building or "their nursing supervisor". If you hire aides from an agency mark my words.
780647 tn?1304024542 And I would also recommend he tries some physical sport such as trampoline classes - you can find classes for special needs children. We bought a small exercise trampette for in the house (to save the furniture), and you could have a bigger one outside. You could also look into some of the listening therapies as they have clinical evidence of improvements in all areas.
1694136 tn?1357656338 If he is overweight, he needs to lose weight and get down to optimal weight, and he should exercise 3 - 4 times a week. 3. He needs a healthy diet; no high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated fats; all his food should be as natural as possible (other than cooking), ie. fruits and veges and meats. Strictly limit the junk food. 4. Make sure he's taking a good quality multivitamin and antioxidant. They may be able to work out why the motility is low.
Avatar f tn I don't think I have heard any downside to supplementing magnesium by the label instructions but maybe someone else knows something I don't. I have given it to Joe on and off. Maybe we should stay on? Magnesium Needed to Help Correct Insulin Resistance Monday, October 25, 2010 - Byron Richards, CCN Health Newsletter Details Magnesium deficiency is pervasive in America. And so is type 2 diabetes.
Avatar f tn I waited for several hours in the pre-op area and then was taken to the cardiac cath lab and situated on a table where several different types of equipment were surrounding me, along with NO JOKE over 15 wires were attached to my chest and surrounding areas along with the patches they use in case they need to jump start your heart. I woke up during the last 10 minutes and felt only mild discomfort when they were mapping then i was ok with another dose of fentyl and versed.
Avatar f tn (it's good for every kid's nervous system, regardless of delay or not)---- start with getting him to parks and on play equipment as much as possible. Run, jump, climb, roll, slide, and swing (calming). Give him a piece of thick bubble gum before school (organizes and calms brain). He may not have any delay at all----- but if he does---- knowing and handling it in terms of early intervention can change his life. It did my sons. He is a much happier boy. Good luck!!
Avatar n tn They are made using recombinent DNA technology - scientists took a specific strand of human DNA containing the instructions/recipe for making thyroxine and inserted it into a special bacteria cell. Now these special bacteria cells are little thyroxine factories and make exactly the same chemical which is the hormone thyroxine (T4) or T3 (Cytomel) respectively. Pretty neat huh? I wish you all the best with your journey ahead.
619345 tn?1310345021 If the doc says that your dose is 100 mcg (really 96) you will probably have instructions to set the pen's dial to .4 . If the doc is concerned about you losing some weight to match the dose for 100 mcg (really 96) why then don't you set the dial to .5 to get the full 120 mcg dose that's in the barrell? But, I'm a believer that more Peg is better than less Peg.
Avatar f tn ----------------------------------------------- Two weeks before ablation, stopped all exercise per doctor’s orders. Reduced Atenolol to 2/3 normal dose on the day of the stress test only, per doctor’s orders. Three days prior to ablation, I was instructed to stop taking Atenolol. Also had to stop eating chocolate until after the ablation. (I can live without Atenolol, but I can’t live without my chocolate.) No food or water was allowed after midnight before the day of ablation.
Avatar m tn People with acidic reflux usually grind their teeth at night. To check if you do get a sports mouth guard a cheap one. Follow instructions and wear it over night. In the morning check if there's any impression in the mouth guard. If you do grind your teeth your acid reflux can eventually can get worse because it stress on your facial, neck and shoulder muscle which can affect your eyes too. Stress is also a known factor so I suggest you take yoga or learn to meditate.
Avatar m tn What I've done is to add some supplements (all except one available at your local healthfood store, or in some cases, even Walmart), added some exercise routines (walking, yoga, and sometimes QiGong), some anti-stress practices--meditation, and especially prayer--and daily I do some of the routines from Donna Eden's "Energy Medicine" books and tapes, especially the lymph self-massage.
Avatar m tn Body removes toxins via sweat glands a lot so it’s no coincident why people who exercise or do sauna or hot bath with EPSOM salt, observe a decline in PATM. They are literally removing and minimizing the excessive toxins from their bloodstream but the leaky gut is constantly pumping toxins to the blood.90% of toxins comes straight from the gut. The other is from internal cellular process and elsewhere in the body.
Avatar n tn Regardless of whether you perform exercise indoors or out, you should drink sufficient water when you exercise. The recommendation is 10 glasses a day for adults and taking drinks every 15-20 minutes during workouts. Sports drinks and juices can replace lost nutrients during exercise. Some sports supplements are known to cause headaches. If you currently use supplements, try cycling out one thing at a time to see if something you are taking is causing the headaches.
Avatar n tn The docs that just look into the ear and use that as their only diagnostic tool can't afford the equipment or an audiologist to run the equipment. So they just wave their magic wand, take your co-pay and send you on your way. In the future, and this goes for anyone with ear issues, see an ENT and only ENT with an AUDIOLOGIST on staff. Do not see an ENT with an assistant doing hearing evaluations they will not know what they are doing.
Avatar m tn If your levels are low when you exercise, have the doctors monitor your oxygen levels while on a treadmill for a minimum of 6 minutes. Again, if the levels remain low, they may prescribe the O2. I am very happy to see that you have quit and are taking such an initiative in regaining your health and fitness..I know how hard that is to do. Over time, hopefully after you have dropped some more weight, your sleep apnea will get better.
Avatar n tn and they include an insert into the bag with instructions and side effects. It would be kind of stupid for a doctor to say anything that might EVER happen because honestly we'd never take anything ever again. I don't think you were used as a guinea pig...they pretty much do know all of the sides that might happen with these regular meds - and if you sign up for a TRIAL (ie: Vertex) you realize that is WHY you are in the trial.
Avatar f tn I had a treadmill test and there were no exaggerated heart rate increases, just the steady rise due to exercise. All tests came back normal - bloods, 24h urine x 5. I then had an MRI scan which found a 1cm growth on my adrenal gland. They thought they had found it.....but urine hormone tests said otherwise, they were normal range levels. The only other condition they now feel I may have is Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome..
405614 tn?1329147714 Lu's right; a ruptured appendix is to be avoided at all costs; my wife has scars to back that up. Does the present soreness feel at all like the same pain you had the first time you did this workout? Even if it's similar, I think I'd still try to err on the safe side.
Avatar f tn Wow! This is eerie to suddenly come upon this thread. Had a heart attack at 45 in Jan '08, with 100% blockage of the LAD. They stented it. I had a rod like pain about the size of a 4" pencil to the left of my sternum - my cardiologist said it was nothing extraordinary. Had a lot of travel and work stress in Sep/Oct and I started getting intermittent pain traveling up the neck to the left side of my jaw. The pain also radiated to my left arm pit.
