Parameters from cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) are useful prognostic factors for patients with repaired tetralogy of fallot (TOF). Its application in exercise prescription remains unclear. This study sought to define its role. We made current exercise recommendations in repaired TOF patients according to European Society of Cardiology (ESC) guideline, which were based on ventricular function, pressure/volume load, pulmonary artery pressure, hypoxemia and arrhythmic burden both at rest and during exercise...

BACKGROUND: The study and application of exercise in multiple sclerosis (MS) often requires cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) to provide a comprehensive assessment of exercise tolerance and responses, including an evaluation of the pulmonary, cardiovascular, and skeletal muscle systems. Research on CPET in persons with MS has considerable limitations, including small sample sizes, often without controls; not reporting outcomes across disability status; and different modalities of exercise testing across studies...

BACKGROUND: Precision and accuracy assurance in cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) facilitates multicenter clinical trials by maximizing statistical power and minimizing participant risk. Current guidelines recommend quality control that is largely based on precision at individual testing centers (minimizing test-retest variability). The aim of this study was to establish a multicenter biological quality control (BioQC) method that considers both precision and accuracy in CPET. METHODS: BioQC testing was 6-min treadmill walking at 20 W and 70 W (below the lactate threshold) with healthy non-smoking laboratory staff (15 centers; ~16 months)...

BACKGROUND: Chagas heart disease (CHD) patients may have a reduced functional capacity (FC). Field tests, as the Incremental Shuttle Walk Test (ISWT), can estimate peak oxygen uptake (VO2 peak). However, the relationship between the ISWT and the Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET), the gold standard in the assessment of FC, is not well established in CHD patients. AIM: This study aimed to evaluate the FC of CHD patients by ISWT with direct measurement of VO2 peak and to compare these findings with data obtained from CPET...

The 6-minute walk test (6MWT) is a simple field test that is widely used in clinical settings to assess functional exercise capacity. However, studies with healthy subjects are scarce. We hypothesized that the 6MWT might be useful to assess exercise capacity in healthy subjects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate 6MWT intensity in middle-aged and older adults, as well as to develop a simple equation to predict oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 ) from the 6-min walk distance (6MWD). Eighty-six participants, 40 men and 46 women, 40-74 years of age and with a mean body mass index of 28±6 kg/m2, performed the 6MWT according to American Thoracic Society guidelines...

Surgery is the treatment of choice in patients with a diagnosis of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A pivotal of eligibility for resection is the early stage of the disease and histopathological assessment. The performance status and comorbidities in population, predominated by elderly patients, also influence the therapeutic decisions. In some lung cancer patients COPD coexists, characterized by a decrease in lung function. Then the preoperative evaluation is particularly important, for both the risk of postoperative complications, lung function and quality of life postoperatively...

BACKGROUND: Comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation (CCR) is an important element of the comprehensive management of grown-up congenital heart disease (GUCH) patients after surgical correction of congenital heart disease (CHD) but access to this treatment is still limited. We still lack Polish guidelines on CCR, including controlled training in young adults several years after surgical correction of CHD. AIM: To assess the effect of a CCR program on physical capacity, exercise tolerance, quality of life, and severity of depressive symptoms in GUCH patients long-term after surgical correction of CHD...

BACKGROUND: Risk stratification in asymptomatic patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS) is based on exercise test results. However, differentiating between pathological and physiological breathlessness during exercise is sometimes challenging. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) may improve quantification of cardiopulmonary exercise capacity in patients with valve diseases. AIMS: To assess the ability of CPET to detect abnormal responses to exercise and a clinical endpoint (occurrence of European Society of Cardiology guidelines surgical class I triggers)...

The relationship between exercise capacity, as assessed by peak oxygen consumption, and outcome is well established in heart failure (HF), but the predictive value of cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) has been recently questioned, for two main reasons. First, the decisional power of CPET in the selection of heart transplantation candidates has diminished, since newer therapeutic options and the shortage of donor hearts have restricted this curative option to extremely advanced HF patients, frequently not able to perform a symptom-limited CPET...

In children, levels of play, physical activity, and fitness are key indicators of health and disease and closely tied to optimal growth and development. Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) provides clinicians with biomarkers of disease and effectiveness of therapy, and researchers with novel insights into fundamental biological mechanisms reflecting an integrated physiological response that is hidden when the child is at rest. Yet the growth of clinical trials utilizing CPET in pediatrics remains stunted despite the current emphasis on preventative medicine and the growing recognition that therapies used in children should be clinically tested in children...

BACKGROUND: The non-invasive diagnosis of cardiac sarcoidosis (CS) is difficult. Cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) has become a very valuable diagnostic tool in patients with suspected CS, but usually a combination of different tests is used. Oxygen uptake efficiency slope (OUES) is a parameter of cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), which is used as an indicator for cardiovascular impairment. We investigated the predictive value of OUES for the diagnosis of myocardial involvement in sarcoid patients...

To achieve the predicted maximal oxygen consumption, many organs need to increase their output in a synchronized fashion. Therefore, maximal oxygen consumption is the single most reliable parameter predicting fitness, morbidity and mortality. Peak O2 uptake can be measured from noninvasive ventilatory parameters during short, incremental, cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) on a cycle ergometer or on a treadmill. Commercial systems are available and all enable breath by breath measurement of ventilation, exhaled gas concentration, oxygen saturation and additional cardiorespiratory parameters...

BACKGROUND: Increased ventilatory response has been shown to have a high prognostic value in patients with chronic heart failure. Our aim was therefore to determine the ventilatory efficiency in pulmonary arterial hypertension and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension by cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) identifying PH-patients with increased risk for death within 24 months after evaluation. METHODS: 116 patients (age: 64 ± 1 years) with a mean pulmonary arterial pressure of 35 ± 1 mmHg underwent CPET and right heart catheterization...

This systematic review aims to get insight into the feasibility of cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in patients with cancer prior to a physical exercise programme. We will focus on quality (defined as the adherence to international guidelines for methods of CPET) and safety of CPET. Furthermore, we compare the peak oxygen uptake (·VO(2peak)) values of patients with cancer with reference values for healthy persons to put these values into a clinical perspective. A computer aided search with 'cardiopulmonary exercise testing' and 'cancer' using MEDLINE, EMBASE, Pedro, CINAHL® and SPORTDiscus™ was carried out...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: We reviewed recent articles, guidelines, and meta-analyses concerning the use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in preoperative risk evaluation and fitness for surgery. When the risk of surgery mortality is high (e.g. >5%), and/or the preoperative state of the patient indicates increased propensity toward morbidity and mortality (advanced age, presence of cardiovascular risk factors, multisystem disease, poor functional status, and so on), the thoroughness of the perioperative assessment should be intensified beyond the standard history and physical, basic laboratories, and electrocardiogram stress testing to include CPET...

BACKGROUND: Objective assessment of severity in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is mainly limited to pulmonary function testing performed at rest. But, accurate assessment of exercise capacity in patients with COPD may be possible with cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). METHODS: Forty-three patients with stable COPD were included and were divided into three groups based upon the spirometry data as per the Global Initiative for Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) guidelines as follows: Group A: mild COPD, Group B: moderately severe COPD and Group C: severe COPD...
