Without Echocardiography Training test your mortality.
Today I came across an interesting article that deals with mortality predictors based on musculo-skeletal fitness. I realize this information doesn’t fit our usual postings of Echocardiography Training and Ultrasound in general, but I found it interesting and so might you.
What they said:
Ability to sit and rise from the floor is closely correlated with all-cause mortality risk
Test of musculo-skeletal fitness is ‘strong predictor’ of mortality in the middle-aged and older
“If a middle-aged or older man or woman can sit and rise from the floor using just one hand – or even better without the help of a hand – they are not only in the higher quartile of musculo-skeletal fitness but their survival prognosis is probably better than that of those unable to do so.”
I was surprised:
I actually watched the video accompanying the story and tried the test for myself. After taking some Aleve and practicing, I was able to complete the test only using one support. Just kidding, but this actually is a little more complicated than I would have thought. I received a score of 4 with isn’t bad but not the best.
Take a look at this article and watch the video. I think everyone should try this. Very easy test, you can complete yourself at home.
