Table 3 Mean difference in end exercise PR, dyspnoea and RPE between ICT and 6MWT

From: Functional exercise capacity and health-related quality of life in people with asbestos related pleural disease: an observational study

Variable ICT mean (SD) 6MWT mean (SD) Mean difference (95%CI) p
PR, b/min 122 (19) 100 (15) 21 (14 to 28) <0.001
Dyspnoea, score 4 (2) 2 (2) 3 (2 to 4) <0.001
RPE, score 5 (2) 1 (2) 4 (3 to 5) <0.001
  1. ICT = incremental cycle test; 6MWT = six-minute walk test; SD = standard deviation; CI = confidence interval; PR = pulse rate; b/min = beats per minute; RPE = rate of perceived exertion.
