Diagnosis – Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

About

  • Compared with traditional exercise testing, cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) provides a thorough assessment of integrative exercise responses, involving the pulmonary, cardiovascular, muscular and cellular oxidative systems. CPET applications in cardiology have grown impressively to include all forms of exercise intolerance, with a predominant focus on heart failure with reduced or with preserved ejection fraction.

    Compared with traditional exercise testing, cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) provides a thorough assessment of integrative exercise responses, involving the pulmonary, cardiovascular, muscular and cellular oxidative systems. CPET applications in cardiology have grown impressively to include all forms of exercise intolerance, with a predominant focus on heart failure with reduced or with preserved ejection fraction.

    The diagnostic and prognostic utility of symptom-limited CPET parameters derived from submaximal tests is more and more considered, since many patients are unable to achieve maximal aerobic power. Repeat tests are also being used for risk stratification and evaluation of intervention.
