Physical Inactivity leads to…
      Overall decline in physical well-being
           Poor physical performance
            Fluid build up in tissues
             Loss of bone strength
                Loss of appetite
                 Muscle wasting

       CRF and higher mortality among patients with

Physiological Benefits
   Reduced risk of cardiovascular mortality
   Decreased use of antihypertensive medications
   Favorable adaptation of body composition
   Reduced C-reactive protein/increased albumin
   Improved removal of toxins by dialysis
   Improved exercise capacity
   Improved blood pressure control
   Improved lipid profile
    •   Esp increased HDL and reduced TG
   Increased hematocrit
    •   Prior to EPO therapy
   Improved glucose regulation
Psychological Benefits
   Reduced subjective fatigue symptoms
   Improved perception of physical functioning
   Improved perception of general health
   Reduced anxiety
   Improved mental health
   Reduced experience of bodily pain
   Increased vitality
   Improved psychological profile
    • Reduced anxiety, hostility, and depression, and
      increased participation in pleasant activities
Functional Benefits
   Improved muscle strength
   Increased 6-min walk distance
   Reduced risk of falls in the elderly
   Maintenance of independence
         During dialysis:
           • Urea removed from blood
           • Urea retained in peripheral body
                 • Urea and creatinine distributed in body water
                 • Muscle water content high
                 • Muscle mass = ~40-45% total body weight
                 • Much of solute mass will be held within muscles
           • Some body tissue is unexposed to dialysis

            After dialysis:
               • Urea re-equilibrates and a rebound results
               • Limits the efficiency of dialysis

            With exercise:
               • Muscle blood flow increases
                    • Potential increase from 3-4ml/min per 100g to
                       80ml/min per 100g
               • More tissue mass is exposed to the
                  dialysis treatment

   Type of exercise
   Intensity of exercise

      Start slowly, Progress gradually!!!
Exercise: A Vital Sign
Exercise Rx
   Surgeon General’s report:

“significant health benefits can be obtained
     by including a moderate amount of
    physical activity….on most, if not all,
              days of the week”.
American College of Sports
Medicine (ACSM)

“Exercise Prescription: every patient, every visit, every time”
Exercise is MedicineTM
   Guiding principles:
    •   Exercise and physical activity are important to health
        and the prevention and treatment of many chronic

    •   More should be done to address physical activity and
        exercise in healthcare settings

    •   ACSM and AMA are making efforts to bring a greater
        focus on physical activity and exercise in healthcare

   Staff Responsibility to Exercise
    • Carlson L, Carey S. ACKD Vol 6, No 2 pp172-
      180, 19996
Steps to developing an exercise
   Gaining staff support
     • Edu/inservice
     • Case presentations
   Commitment to developing a program
     • Group input
     • Assurance of willingness of staff to participate
   Assess available resources
     • Staff interest
     • Teamwork
     • Interested patients
     • Local programs

Steps to developing an exercise
   Develop a program
     • Smaller working groups (care planning,
       motivation/education, exercise programming)
     • Staff responsibilities identified
     • Facilitate a sense of ownership amongst staff
   Start program
     • Start slowly (one shift, one bay, interested pts)
     • Progress gradually
   Ongoing evaluation
     • CQI
     • Patient reassessment
     • Patient programs                      6. Carlson L, Carey S. ACKD, 1999
UVA SitFit Exercise Program
   8 Units
   800 patients
   50% patient participation
   78% exercise compliance
UVA SitFit Exercise Program
   One Exercise Physiologist
   Exercise Leader at each unit
    • Technician or RN
   Monthly QAPI Reports
   Monthly Compliance Reports
   Quarterly Exercise Team
Beyond the science…
   Setting expectations
   Potential for patient to exercise
   Motivating a non-motivated patient
Barriers to Exercise
   Sickness
   Fatigue
   Lack of equipment
   Lack of motivation
   Depression
   Lack of encouragement

      Most can be resolved through exercise!
