    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Cardiopulmonary Assessment Lab

Today during Cardiopulmonary lab we got into groups to design our own graded exercise test. Pictured below is my good buddy and 2nd year DPT classmate, Blake, during his warm-up. Each group utilized a different mode (i.e. bike, treadmill, upper body ergometer, Nu-step, etc.) to assess cardiopulmonary function and fitness of one group member during a sub-maximal test. Our group decided to use a recumbent bike considering Blake has experience as a recreational and competitive cyclist. The target was to reach 75-85% of the patient’s METs (metabolic equivalent – i.e. shoveling snow uses ~ 7.1 METs). The test we developed was accurate and actually got us to our MET target of ~85%, which for Blake was around 12.5 METs.

Always neat to be hands on and have a little fun in the lab. Oh and no worries, Blake’s cardiopulmonary fitness was at a healthy level!
