The results of the Borg scale
however showed that the players did not experience the 24-hour post-match test to be more exhausting than the baseline test.
Have the patient stand and rate their baseline dyspnea and overall fatigue using the Borg scale
The Borg scale
mean values increased significantly (F = 6.
A comparison of the visual analogue scale and modified Borg scale
for the measurement of dyspnoea during exercise.
There a similar blind lifting exercise using the BORG scale
was conducted at the registration desk.
After 12 weeks of treatment, the Borg scale
score after the six-minute walk test improved from 5.
At the end of the program, the MRC, the Borg Scale
, the Muscle Test, MI and TCT had improved significantly, as we can see in Tables 6, 7, 8, (9a and 9b) and 10.
Scores from the Borg Scale
of Perceived Exertion and breathlessness intensity using a 10-cm visual analogue scale (where 0 indicated no breathlessness and 10 indicated the worst breathlessness possible) were collected before and after cessation of exercise.
Test-retest reliability of the three tests was examined, using the following study measures: number of jumps and time to fatigue (for the jump tests); distance walked (for the 6MWT); physiological (heart rate, oxygen saturation) and breathlessness (modified Borg scale
of perceived breathlessness, fifteen-count breathlessness score) for all tests.
The Borg Scale
is commonly used (Borg, 1998) (see Table 2).
You might find, for example, that walking on a flat surface used to feel like you were working at level 13 on the Borg scale
, but now you have to walk up a mild hill to feel like you are working at level 13.
Effort sensations on the Borg scale
are highly correlated with actual heart rate and multiplying one's self-reported RPE by ten provides a general estimate of an individual's heart rate at any given moment.
9) Dyspnea was assessed using a validated, modified Borg scale
every 12 hours for 72 hours.
Is the Borg Scale
a valid and semi-objective method to assess pain?
This can be rated using the Borg scale
of perceived exertion, which ranges from 0 for lowest intensity to 16 for highest.
