Ischemic Preconditioning in Endurance Athletes
Influence of Remote Ischemic Preconditioning on Cardiac Function After Endurance Exercise
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of remote ischemic preconditioning on biochemical and functional indices of cardiac function induced by a 30 km run in healthy trained long distance runners.

Interventional
Not Provided
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single (Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Basic Science
Exercise
Other: Remote ischemic preconditioning
Blood pressure cuff placed on upper arm and inflated to 200mmHg for 5 minutes then deflated for 5 minutes - this cycle is repeated a total of 4 times.
  • No Intervention: Sham RIC
    Control treatment (sham RIC) will consist of four 5-minute simulated inflations of a blood pressure cuff placed on the upper arm. The inflations will be separated by 5-minute periods when the blood pressure cuff will be deflated.
  • Active Comparator: Remote ischemic conditioning
    Blood pressure cuff placed on upper arm and inflated to 200mmHg for 5 minutes then deflated for 5 minutes - this cycle is repeated a total of 4 times.
    Intervention: Other: Remote ischemic preconditioning
