Professor Kate Early Published in Professional Health Journal

Kate Early, assistant professor of exercise science in Columbus State University’s College of Education and Health Professions, recently published a peer-reviewed article titled “The Effects of Exercise Training on Brachial Artery Flow-Mediated Dilation” in the Journal of Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation and Prevention.

Her article analyzed the results of 66 previous studies to determine the impact of exercise training on flow-mediated dilation (FMD), a method of determining cardiovascular health using ultrasounds to image blood vessels. Early found that aerobic exercise beyond current recommendations had greater improvements in FMD, suggesting exercise of greater intensity and duration may be optimal for improving cardiovascular health.
