• Aerobic Interval Training Prevents Age-Dependent Vulnerability to Atrial Fibrillation in Rodents 

      Malmo, Vegard; Kelly, Allen; Garten, Karin S; Stolen, Tomas; Rolim, Natale P. L.; Wisloff, Ulrik; Smith, Godfrey; Loennechen, Jan P. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Aims: Increasing age is the most important risk factor for atrial fibrillation (AF). Very high doses of exercise training might increase AF risk, while moderate levels seem to be protective. This study aimed to examine the ...
    • Associations of asthma and asthma control with atrial fibrillation risk: Results from the Nord-Trøndelag health study (HUNT) 

      Cepelis, Aivaras; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Malmo, Vegard; Laugsand, Lars Erik; Loennechen, Jan Pål; Ellekjær, Hanne; Langhammer, Arnulf; Janszky, Imre; Strand, Linn B (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Importance Asthma, a chronic inflammatory airway disease, and atrial fibrillation (AF) share several common pathophysiological mechanisms. Research on the association between asthma and atrial fibrillation is lacking, ...
    • Atrial fibrillation and exercise 

      Malmo, Vegard (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2019:60, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common persistent arrhythmia, with a prevalence of 2-3% in the adult population and is associated with an increased morbidity and mortality. This is caused by an increased risk of stroke ...
    • Cardiorespiratory Reference Data in Older Adults: The Generation 100 Study. 

      Stensvold, Dorthe; Bucher Sandbakk, Silvana; Viken, Hallgeir; Zisko, Nina; Reitlo, Line Skarsem; Nauman, Javaid; Gaustad, Svein Erik; Hassel, Erlend; Moufack, Marcel; Brønstad, Eivind; Aspvik, Nils Petter; Malmo, Vegard; Steinshamn, Sigurd Loe; Støylen, Asbjørn; Anderssen, Sigmund Alfred; Helbostad, Jorunn L.; Rognmo, Øivind; Wisløff, Ulrik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Purpose: Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is regarded a clinical vital sign, and accurate reference values for all age groups are essential. Little data exist on CRF and cardiorespiratory function in older adults. The aim ...
    • Does moderate drinking increase the risk of atrial fibrillation? The norwegian HUNT (Nord-Trøndelag Health) study 

      Gmes, Katalin; Malmo, Vegard; Laugsand, Lars Erik; Loennechen, Jan Pl; Ellekjaer, Hanne; Lszl, Krisztina D; Ahnve, Staffan; Vatten, Lars J; Mukamal, Kenneth J; Janszky, Imre (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background Compelling evidence suggests that excessive alcohol consumption increases the risk of atrial fibrillation (AF), but the effect of light‐moderate alcohol consumption is less certain. We investigated the association ...
    • Exercise in individuals with atrial fibrillation 

      Myrstad, Marius; Malmo, Vegard; Ulimoen, Sara Reinvik; Tveit, Arnljot; Loennechen, Jan Pål (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background Despite the high prevalence of atrial fibrillation (AF), there is a lack of recommendations for physical activity and exercise in individuals with AF, including athletes with AF. Methods With the aim to review ...
    • Fast food increases postprandial cardiac workload in type 2 diabetes independent of pre-exercise: A pilot study 

      Hollekim-Strand, Siri Marte; Malmo, Vegard; Follestad, Turid; Wisløff, Ulrik; Ingul, Charlotte Bjørk (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Background Type 2 diabetes aggravates the postprandial metabolic effects of food, which increase cardiovascular risk. We investigated the acute effects of fast food on postprandial left ventricular (LV) function and the ...
    • Physical activity modifies the risk of atrial fibrillation in obese individuals: The HUNT3 study 

      Garnvik, Lars Elnan; Malmo, Vegard; Janszky, Imre; Wisløff, Ulrik; Loennechen, Jan Pål; Nes, Bjarne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Background Atrial fibrillation is the most common heart rhythm disorder, and high body mass index is a well-established risk factor for atrial fibrillation. The objective of this study was to examine the associations of ...
    • Validation of self-reported and hospital-diagnosed atrial fibrillation: The HUNT study 

      Malmo, Vegard; Langhammer, Arnulf; Bønaa, Kaare; Loennechen, Jan Pål; Ellekjær, Hanne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      Background: Self-reported atrial fibrillation (AF) and diagnoses from hospital registers are often used to identify persons with AF. The objective of this study was to validate self-reported AF and hospital discharge ...
