CPET Presentation with Dr. Snell of the Workwell Foundation

 

For those of you who were unable to attend Dr. Snell’s presentation on the CPET and it’s use for the assessment of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, here are the videos of the talk!

Dr. Snell explains how the test works and how its results can be used as hard evidence for CFS and disability. The information presented is truly educational and we hope you learn from it as much as we have!

If you would like to have the CPET done, please contact our office to set this up!

New Brain Imaging Technology!

Previous technology had only allowed scientists to view neural networks by thin slices of the brain at a time. This made constructing a complete image of the brain and its connections nearly impossible.

Karl Deisseroth and his team at Stanford University have created a groundbreaking method of brain imaging that allows scientists to image the whole brain or large blocks of it. This new method is called CLARITY, and it enables detailed images from the outside to deep inside the brain.

Take a look at the video to see what CLARITY is able to achieve!

Top 10 Things You Should Know About Post-Exertional Relapse

Video

This is a very informative video to give you valuable knowledge about Post-Exertional Relapse/Malaise (PEM). Please do take the time to watch!

PEM occurs when the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is worsened and increased in severity due to overexertion. These episodes can last for days and prevent an individual from doing any kind of physical activity and even have individuals bedridden. It is important to learn what can induce PEM in yourself and learn about your limitations. A good way to test for this would be to do a CPET.

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) allows us to diagnose a patient for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and will also check for abnormality of cardiovascular and pulmonary functions in relation to exercise. It is an objective test that measures the aerobic capacity of a patient. Please visit www.workwellfoundation.org for more details!
