This trial is evaluating whether Supine Exercise will improve 1 primary outcome and 19 secondary outcomes in patients with Hepatopulmonary Syndrome. Measurement will happen over the course of 12 months.
This trial requires 10 total participants across 2 different treatment groups
This trial involves 2 different treatments. Supine Exercise is the primary treatment being studied. Participants will all receive the same treatment. There is no placebo group. The treatments being tested are not being studied for commercial purposes.
"Signs of systemic disease are frequent in patients with systemic rheumatic diseases, and may not be due to the disease per se. The signs of systemic rheumatic diseases include weight gain, easy bruising, easy bruising and bleeding, and persistent joint pain. However, a careful history of these signs in systemic rheumatic diseases remains difficult before a certain diagnosis in other syndromes." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"This term was coined by Dr John Money in his famous article "The Role of the Brain in Human Behaviour". It refers to the grouping of symptoms, signs and conditions (e.g., mental retardation, cerebral palsy, neurological disorders, developmental disorders, behavioural and learning difficulties, etc.) which share a common pathogenetic mechanism of neural dysfunction." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Symptom can be a good predictor where the cause of a symptom is known, but may not be good enough in a condition in which the cause of the symptom is unknown. For example, the cause of cough in bronchiolitis is not well understood but is likely to be a viral cause." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Current evidence suggests that many patients with various syndromes may only respond to the management of the underlying condition. Consequently, treatments to cure the syndrome may be inappropriate at present." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Although an incidence of 1 per 5,000 per year is an important number, it likely underestimates the true incidence. Because of a high degree of overlap in clinical presentations, there are some patients who may have a diagnosis of syndrome A while other physicians may not consider them to have this syndrome. Thus, an incidence of 10–20 per year seems more appropriate for the syndrome A patient cohort." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"There is no cure for either the physical or the psychological syndrome associated with schizophrenia, but a treatment approach can significantly improve symptoms. Current treatments (i.e. antipsychotics) are effective for some symptomatology, but there is little difference between treatment and placebo groups in the average number of days with a good assessment. There needs to be more rigorous research into which treatments work for what patient groups. There is some hope in more recent clinical trials. The new antipsychotics seem to be better than earlier drugs on many, but not all symptomatology. Some of these drugs also seem to be cheaper. Future clinical trials should consider the cost-effectiveness of the medications before giving them to patients." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"In the U.S. population, we've found that 41 % of individuals aged 19-39 have a syndrome; 30 % of individuals aged 40-64; and 19 % of individuals > or= 65 years old have a syndrome. Gender did not appear to have a significant effect on symptom occurrence, with both males and females reporting similarly high rates of syndrome. The prevalence of a syndrome is fairly evenly distributed between white and black groups, with whites reporting higher rates of syndrome than blacks for PTSD. Gender and age are the few variables shown to be associated with a higher or lower prevalence of a syndrome." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Results from a recent paper of the study demonstrated that supine exercise significantly improves the quality of life of patients with pSS and it can be considered as an integral part of the multimodal therapeutic approach for pSS." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Every disease can be severe. It is not only the severity of the disease that determines the severity of the syndrome, which should be assessed after diagnosis." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Exercise-induced pain in patients with interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome reduces even when no analgesic has been administered before exercise. Patients with interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome with no prior analgesic need for exercise may benefit from exercise and the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Primary syndromes tend to be relatively rare, yet they often affect many people, and many of the symptoms can be quite debilitating. Most syndromes are not diagnosed by people with chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic fatigue is not a diagnosis. Symptom triggers include fatigue, exhaustion, mood abnormalities, and low energy which are common with any syndrome and are not exclusive. The most common conditions causing fatigue are infections, autoimmune disorders, sleep disorders, and stress. Most fatigue is caused by chronic illness or over-worked schedules, and if fatigue occurs in the context of unexplained symptoms, a primary symptom disorder can be identified and treated." - Anonymous Online Contributor
"Results from a recent clinical trial suggest that the major genetic factors in ASM are the same or very similar to those in SCA and SPG. This suggests that it may be reasonable to speculate that there is a common underlying genetic component to the three disorders." - Anonymous Online Contributor
