Scientific Questions Being Studied

We hope to elucidate information surrounding weekly physical activity among patients with unstable angina (preinfraction syndrome) and seek to understand whether there is an impact that medically adherent patients with prescribed medication, namely beta blockers, can have on weekly physical activity levels. This information could help further our understanding of the behavioral factors that have significant influences on the overall health outcomes of this patient population.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

Initially, I will look at the existing data for patients with conditions of chest pain, more specifically preinfraction syndrome. From that data I will explore further information regarding their weekly physical activity levels as recorded by the Fitbit data as well as the existing information on prescribed medications. At this stage, we are still in a exploratory phase and have not planned a structured analysis for this data.

Anticipated Findings

I anticipate that we will see that patients with preinfraction syndrome who are medically adherent to their prescribed medication of beta blockers will be more likely to have higher levels of weekly physical activity (indicated by active minutes) than those patients who are not prescribed medication/non-adherent. Based on the information collected in this study, we would posit potential explanations to the observed results based on the existing peer-reviewed literature. With any information found with this study, the scientific community would have a further understanding of the potential factors that may or may not contribute to behavioral health outcomes, like physical activity, in this patient population and how it may contribute to overall well-being.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.
