Table 7 Study Measurements and Sub-Studies

From: The lung cancer exercise training study: a randomized trial of aerobic training, resistance training, or both in postsurgical lung cancer patients: rationale and design

Physical measurements and tests
   Height, weight, and body mass index
   Body composition
   Resting and exercise heart rate
   Resting and exercise blood pressure
   Resting and exercise 12-lead ECG
   Peak and submaximal oxygen consumption
   Ventilatory threshold
Mechanistic physiological measurements
   Resting and exercise echocardiogram
   Skeletal muscle function (fiber type distribution, oxidative capacity, and muscular strength)

   Resting and exercise oxygen saturation
   Each intervention (exercise or attention control) session: heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, RPE
Patient-reported outcomes (questionnaire-based)
   Medications
   Quality of life
   Fatigue

   Depression
   Adverse events (Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events; CTCAE v.4.0)
Substudies
   Genetic studies to examine differences to exercise stimulus
   Predictors of exercise adherence
   Pilot studies for exercise-induced changes in peripheral gene expression
