Mean recovery heart rate during ergoreflex in adult male cancer patients

Manveen Kaur.

Abstract
Background: Cancer is a disease characterized by unregulated growth of the cell. Cachexia is one of the most common syndromes in cancer patients, seen in almost half of the patients, characterized by weight loss and can occur in a number of conditions.

Aims and Objective: The present study was aimed to analyze mean recovery heart rate during ergoreflex in adult male cancer patients.

Materials and Methods: A study group comprised 30 cancer patients between the age group of 45 and 60 years, who were selected from the cancer outpatient department of Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences, Dehradun, with primary diagnosis of cancer. The patients were confirmed for cancer histologically and were included before the start of the treatment and after follow-up of 3 months of treatment.

Results: The results indicated a significant increase in heart rate and respiratory rate during sustained hand grip (SHG) exercise and were maintained during venous occlusion and immediately after SHG. There was a significant increase in heart rate and respiratory rate during SHG exercise, which was maintained during venous occlusion and immediately after SHG.

Conclusion: This reflex exerts positive feedback action favoring exercising muscle metabolism in conditions of elevated energetic demands by increasing ventilatory drive, blood pressure, sympathetic activation, and vasoconstriction of exercising limb.

Key words: Cancer; Ergoreflex; Cachexia
