Precise measurement of physical activity is critically important when examining relationships of physical activity and health related outcomes. Selection of the appropriate measure(s) is necessary for the accurate assessment of physical activity in this population. DESIGN: This study is a prospective, comparative study of postmenopausal cardiac women enrolled in Phase II cardiac rehabilitation (CR) at three CR programs in northeastern Ohio. Data is being collected on 100 cardiac patients. Two self-report measures of physical activity, a physical activity questionnaire and a daily activity log will be used. In addition the subjects will wear an electronic monitoring. The Paffenbarger Physical Activity Questionnaire (PPAQ) will gather information on activities in the previous week, and during a designated week, subjects will simultaneously wear the RT3 accelerometer and complete a Daily Activity Log (DAL). METHOD: Analyses of data will identify the consistency of the RT3 accelerometer, PPAQ, and the DAL across the week, as well as individual variations in levels of physical activity. Consistency in the rate of perceived exertion (RPE) while carrying out activities when reported on the PPAQ and the DAL will also be examined. Spearman's rho rank order correlation as well as Pearson correlation coefficients will be used to test for the association between the physical activity scores and the level of exertion scores. Usual range of activities: sedentary and light, moderate, high and very high activities will be evaluated utilizing MET units and compared among the measures. IMPLICATIONS: Postmenopausal cardiac women are a vulnerable population. When measuring physical activity levels of these patients it is necessary to accurately estimate their energy expenditure to recommend appropriate therapeutic activity levels.
