according to manufacturer guidelines. For trials that required inflation of the bladder, consistency in air pressure was achieved by performing a predetermined number of strokes with a manual bicycle pump (5 strokes for medium sized vest and 8 strokes for large sized vest). The number of strokes was

, p values, and variance inflation factors. The variance inflation factors estimates are provided to show that the models are not adversely affected by multicollinearity. Some statisticians suggest that all variance inflation factors estimates should be lower than 5 ( Studenmund, 2001 ), whereas

range of 5–75 mm Hg), during which the sleeve undergoes cycles of 3-minute inflation and 1-minute deflation during the entire treatment time. The PP intermittent compression can be applied with either a gel pack insert or wetted IB inserts. Previous research has found that the wetted IB inserts produce

application of IPC to determine its efficacy as a potential preexercise priming strategy. The first study to investigate IPC in a human exercise model demonstrated a 3% improvement in maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ) after a 3 × 5-minute bilateral leg-cuff inflation (220 mm Hg) protocol. 4 A

: growth in gross national income (GNI) per capita and growth in inflation (as reflected by the CPI). The GNI is an accepted measure of economic growth on a global and domestic basis (e.g., Barro, 1991 ) and is available for all leading global economies. To assess trends related to GNI in each sponsor

counterpulsation (ECP). The ECP involves the rapid distal to proximal electrocardiogram (ECG)-synchronized inflation of cuffs that surround the calves, thighs, and buttocks to supra-systolic pressures of up to 300 mm Hg during diastole and simultaneous cuff deflation during systole. Numerous patient populations

were performed with a pressure cuff applied to the upper right thigh using an automated rapid cuff inflation system (Hokanson, Bellevue, WA). The venous occlusion technique required the inflation of the cuff to 70 mm Hg to restrict venous outflow (while still allowing arterial inflow). By monitoring

(although to be expected) high collinearity (variance inflation factor > 10) within anthropometric measure categories (eg, the torso depth was highly correlated with gestational age). We also observed high collinearity between torso anthropometry and BMI. We had to account for this high collinearity and
