Abstract

The effects of acute exercise on arterial compliance in older adults are unknown. Large and small arterial compliance were assessed during and 24 hours following a 30-minute bicycle ergometer test and on a nonexercise, control condition. The change in large artery compliance was similar between the exercise and nonexercise conditions (P = 0.876). Small artery compliance during the exercise day was higher than the nonexercise day at 45, 60, and 75 minutes following exercise (P <.001), was 17% higher 30 minutes postexercise than at rest (P <.001), and decreased by 20% between 30 minutes (4.5 ± 0.4 mL/mm Hg × 100) and 120 minutes (3.6 ± 0.3 mL/mm Hg × 100) after exercise (P =.027). The current study shows 30 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise transiently increases small arterial compliance 30 minutes after exercise but does not elicit more sustained increases in either large or small arterial compliance.
