Work Capacity Evaluation: Assessment of physiological capacities in relation to job requirements. It is usually done by measuring certain physiological (e.g., circulatory and respiratory) variables during a gradually increasing workload until specific limitations occur with respect to those variables.Low Back Pain: Acute or chronic pain in the lumbar or sacral regions, which may be associated with musculo-ligamentous SPRAINS AND STRAINS; INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; and other conditions.Work: Productive or purposeful activities.Return to Work: Resumption of normal work routine following a hiatus or period of absence due to injury, disability, or other reasons.Physical Exertion: Expenditure of energy during PHYSICAL ACTIVITY. Intensity of exertion may be measured by rate of OXYGEN CONSUMPTION; HEAT produced, or HEART RATE. Perceived exertion, a psychological measure of exertion, is included.Phosphofructokinase-1, Muscle Type: An allosteric enzyme that regulates glycolysis by catalyzing the transfer of a phosphate group from ATP to fructose-6-phosphate to yield fructose-1,6-bisphosphate. In humans, PHOSPHOFRUCTOKINASE-1 in muscle exists as the homotetramer of M subunits. Defects in this muscle enzyme cause GLYCOGEN STORAGE DISEASE TYPE VII, also known as Tarui's disease.Oxygen Consumption: The rate at which oxygen is used by a tissue; microliters of oxygen STPD used per milligram of tissue per hour; the rate at which oxygen enters the blood from alveolar gas, equal in the steady state to the consumption of oxygen by tissue metabolism throughout the body. (Stedman, 25th ed, p346)Nurses' Aides: Allied health personnel who assist the professional nurse in routine duties.Physical Endurance: The time span between the beginning of physical activity by an individual and the termination because of exhaustion.

(1/346) Permanent work incapacity, mortality and survival without work incapacity among occupations and social classes: a cohort study of ageing men in Geneva.

BACKGROUND: The objective of this retrospective cohort study was to investigate the burden of disability and death in men, from middle age to age of retirement, among occupational groups and classes in Geneva. METHODS: Men were included if they resided in the Canton of Geneva, were 45 years of age in 1970-1972, and were not receiving a disability pension at the start of the follow-up. The cohort of 5137 men was followed up for 20 years and linked to national registers of disability pension allowance and of causes of death. RESULTS: There was a steep upward trend in incidence of permanent work incapacity with lower social class for all causes as well as for the seven causes of disability studied. Compared with professional occupations (social class I), the relative risk (RR) of permanent work incapacity was 11.4 for partly skilled and unskilled occupations (class IV+V) (95% confidence interval [CI]: 5.2-28.0). The social class gradient in mortality was in the same direction as that in work incapacity although much less steep (RR class IV+V to class I = 1.6, 95% CI : 1.1-2.2). Survival without work incapacity at the time of the 65th birthday ranged from only 57% in construction workers and labourers to 89% in science and related professionals. Unemployment in Geneva was below 1.5% during almost all the study period. CONCLUSIONS: Medically-ascertained permanent work incapacity and survival without work incapacity have shown considerably greater socioeconomic differentials than the mortality differentials.  (+info)

(2/346) Economic consequences of the progression of rheumatoid arthritis in Sweden.

OBJECTIVE: To develop a simulation model for analysis of the cost-effectiveness of treatments that affect the progression of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: The Markov model was developed on the basis of a Swedish cohort of 116 patients with early RA who were followed up for 5 years. The majority of patients had American College of Rheumatology (ACR) functional class II disease, and Markov states indicating disease severity were defined based on Health Assessment Questionnaire (HAQ) scores. Costs were calculated from data on resource utilization and patients' work capacity. Utilities (preference weights for health states) were assessed using the EQ-5D (EuroQol) questionnaire. Hypothetical treatment interventions were simulated to illustrate the model. RESULTS: The cohort distribution among the 6 Markov states clearly showed the progression of the disease over 5 years of followup. Costs increased with increasing severity of the Markov states, and total costs over 5 years were higher for patients who were in more severe Markov states at diagnosis. Utilities correlated well with the Markov states, and the EQ-5D was able to discriminate between patients with different HAQ scores within ACR functional class II. CONCLUSION: The Markov model was able to assess disease progression and costs in RA. The model can therefore be a useful tool in calculating the cost-effectiveness of different interventions aimed at changing the progression of the disease.  (+info)

(3/346) Comparisons between hemodynamics, during and after bathing, and prognosis in patients with myocardial infarction.

The purpose of this study was to establish the safest way to bathe patients with myocardial infarction (MI) through measuring the hemodynamics during and after bathing. Seventy patients with MI were bathed supine in a Hubbard tank filled with 42 degrees C tap water for 5 min. The subjects were divided into 2 groups depending on their hemodynamic values 10 min after bathing: pulmonary capillary wedge pressure unchanged even after bathing (group A), and decreased pressure after bathing (group B). The left ventricular ejection fraction of group B was significantly higher than that of group A: 53.6% vs. 39.7%, respectively (p<0.01). The physical work capacity of group B was significantly higher at 5.6 METs, than that of group A with 4.5 METs (p<0.05). During the average of their 37-month follow-up period, there were 3 cardiac events in group B and 6 in group A. There were 2 cardiac events during bathing, both of which occurred in group A. When patients with MI take a bath, it is essential to closely monitor them, especially to those patients with lower cardiac function, because they have a higher possibility of a cardiac event.  (+info)

(4/346) Work ability assessed by patients and their GPs in new episodes of sickness certification.

BACKGROUND: Sickness certification legislation demands that work ability is reduced due to disease or injury. Most sickness certificates are issued by GPs. Assessment of work ability might introduce conflict in the doctor-patient relationship. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare the level of work ability assessments by patients and their GPs in new episodes of sickness certification, and to explore how medical conditions and work demands are associated with the assessments. METHODS: Forty nine GPs supplied data about 408 patients certified sick <8 days before questionnaires were filled in. A total of 268 (66%) patients completed corresponding questionnaires. Patients and GPs independently answered the following question using a five-point scale: "To what degree is your (the patient's) ability to perform your (his or her) ordinary, remunerative work reduced today?" RESULTS: Work ability was assessed by patients as very much or much reduced in 66%, moderately reduced in 23% and not much or hardly reduced at all in 11% of the cases. Corresponding assessments made by GPs were 71, 27 and 2%. Patients and GPs agreed well on their assessments (+/- 1 answer category) in 81% (216/266) of the cases. The patients assessed work ability as more reduced the more stressful or physically strenuous their jobs were, and the older their GPs were. The GPs assessed work ability as more reduced the more their assessments were based on clinical findings. CONCLUSIONS: The agreement between work ability assessments made by patients and GPs was high, despite patients' assessments being associated with work demands and GPs' with medical conditions.  (+info)

(5/346) Finnish farmers' self-reported morbidity, work ability, and functional capacity.

The aim of the study was to evaluate Finnish farmers' self-reported morbidity, especially musculoskeletal disease and disabilities, work ability, physical fitness, and functional capacity. A further goal was to identify the group of farmers that most need a means to promote their work ability. The data were collected with a computer-assisted telephone interview. The study population comprised of 577 full-time farmers (296 men and 281 women). The results have been expressed as odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals determined in a logistic regression analysis. The farmers with the greatest need for activities that support and promote work ability are those over 34 years of age, female farmers, farmers with fewer than 10 years of education, farmers from farms with fewer than 20 hectares of cultivated land, farmers who milk cows regularly, and depressed farmers.  (+info)

(6/346) Indirect medical costs in early rheumatoid arthritis: composition of and changes in indirect costs within the first three years of disease.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate 1) the magnitude of indirect costs, 2) changes in cost components, and 3) correlations between changes in cost and social, clinical, and occupational variables within the first 3 years of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS: We evaluated the indirect costs per person-year in 133 consecutive gainfully employed out-patients with early RA, in a prospective multicenter followup study. Costs due to RA-related sick leave, work disability, and other work loss were assessed using the human capital approach. Variables associated with reduction in lost productivity were tested by multivariate logistic regression analysis. RESULTS: Mean +/- SEM annual indirect costs were $11,750 +/- 1,120 per person. During the 3-year period of observation, a marked reduction in the costs associated with sick leave was seen, which exceeded the increase in costs due to work disability and other work loss. This phenomenon resulted in an overall reduction in indirect costs of 21%. The final logistic regression model of reduced loss of productivity included 3 variables: no problems with standing (odds ratio [OR] 7.1), no problems with working speed (OR 4.1), and no problems with outdoor work (OR 3.1). CONCLUSION: High indirect costs in early RA were demonstrated. An overall decrease of costs can be seen in the first 3 years, due to the reduction in sick leave. Since the absence of problems due to strenuous working conditions was found to be associated with a reduction in indirect costs, it is assumed that early intensified vocational rehabilitation, apart from controlling disease activity by adequate treatment, might help to reduce indirect costs.  (+info)

(7/346) Effects of pool-based and land-based aerobic exercise on women with fibromyalgia/chronic widespread muscle pain.

OBJECTIVE: To examine the effects of pool-based (PE) and land-based (LE) exercise programs on patients with fibromyalgia. METHODS: The outcomes were assessed by the Fibromyalgia Impact Questionnaire, the Arthritis Self-Efficacy Scale, and tests of physical capacity. RESULTS: Eighteen subjects in the PE group and 16 in the LE group performed a structured exercise program. After 20 weeks, greater improvement in grip strength was seen in the LE group compared with the PE group (P < 0.05). Statistically significant improvements were seen in both groups in cardiovascular capacity, walking time, and daytime fatigue. In the PE group improvements were also found in number of days of feeling good, self-reported physical impairment, pain, anxiety, and depression. The results were mainly unchanged at 6 months followup. CONCLUSION: Physical capacity can be increased by exercise, even when the exercise is performed in a warm-water pool. PE programs may have some additional effects on symptoms.  (+info)

(8/346) The effects of asthma on the quality of life and employment of construction workers.

Relatively little is known about the consequences of asthma for patients' work ability. In particular, the relationship between asthma and construction work has not been studied previously. The aim of this study was to determine how asthma affects construction workers' work ability and quality of life, and the most important conditions that cause respiratory symptoms in construction work. A questionnaire was sent to all construction workers examined in the pulmonary clinic of Tampere University Hospital between 1991 and 1995 who were diagnosed as having 'asthma bronchiale' (n = 104). In addition, 206 non-asthmatic construction workers were recruited from the register of the local trade union. Altogether, 73% of the asthmatic construction workers and 70% of the controls completed the questionnaire. Of the asthmatics, 48% were retired, whereas only 24% of the controls were receiving a pension. The asthmatics evaluated their work ability and general health as significantly worse than did the controls. The asthmatics had more limitations in their work and everyday life than the controls. Asthmatic construction workers had often changed work tasks and also occupation because of their illness. Building renovation, cleaning and insulation with mineral fibre materials were the most common causes of respiratory symptoms in the workplace, among both the asthmatics and the controls. Cold air, physical exercise and all types of dust and smoke caused the asthmatics to experience symptoms. It was concluded that asthma limits the work and everyday life of construction workers. Exposure to dusty, non-sensitizing agents is associated with asthmatic symptoms among construction workers.  (+info)
