OBJECTIVE: PAD is associated with a markedly increased risk of cardiovascular mortality and remains under-recognized and under-treated. New screening approaches are needed to prevent disability in patients with PAD. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of clinically stable cardiovascular patients who were referred for cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) due to a variety of cardiovascular complaints. Amongst patients who prematurely terminated CPET, their available angiograms were assessed...

INTRODUCTION/PURPOSE: Peripheral capillary oxygen saturation (SpO2) is used as surrogate for arterial blood oxygen saturation. We studied the degree of discrepancy between SpO2 and arterial oxygen (SaO2) and identified parameters that may explain this difference. METHODS: We included patients who underwent cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) at Cleveland Clinic. Pulse oximeters with forehead probes measured SpO2 and arterial blood gas (ABG) samples provided the SaO2 both at rest and peak exercise...

Postintubation tracheal stenosis (PITS) is one of the most frequent causes of lower airways obstruction. Usually, PITS is the consequence of prolonged intubation period, but may occur also after short-term intubation. Diagnosis may be difficult if stridor is not present and the post-extubation period is many years long. Bronchoscopy and CT scanning are the diagnostic gold standard. In some cases, lung function tests may also be helpful. Treatment options include conservative treatment, surgery and endoscopic methods...

The benefits of inhibiting the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) are well established for left ventricular dysfunction, but remain unknown for right ventricular (RV) dysfunction. The aim of the current meta-analysis is to investigate the role of RAAS inhibition on RV function in those with or at risk of RV dysfunction. Medline, PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane Libraries were systematically searched and 12 studies were included for statistical synthesis, comprising 265 RAAS inhibition treatment patients and 265 placebo control patients...

PURPOSE: Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) is used to evaluate functional capacity and assess prognosis in cardiac patients. Ventilatory efficiency (VE/VCO2 ) reflects ventilation-perfusion mismatch; the minimum VE/VCO2 value (minVE/VCO2 ) is representative of pulmonary arterial blood flow in individuals without pulmonary disease. Usually, minVE/VCO2 has a strong relationship with the peak oxygen uptake (VO2 ), but dissociation can occur. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between minVE/VCO2 and predicted peak VO2 (peak VO2 %) and evaluated the parameters associated with a discrepancy between these two parameters...

PURPOSE: Improvements in cardiorespiratory fitness (VO2peak) post-cardiac rehabilitation (post-CR) are used to gauge therapeutic efficacy. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of supervised CR on other cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) variables, specifically those that reflect ventilatory efficiency and VO2 changes in relation to changes in work rate (WR). METHODS: Patients (n = 142; mean age 63 ± 9 y; 23% female) with coronary artery disease (CAD) participated in supervised CR for 3 to 6 mo completing 60 ± 17 sessions (range: 32-96 sessions), with intensity derived from the baseline CPX...

BACKGROUND: Breathing pattern disorder (BPD) is a prevalent cause of exertional dyspnea and yet there is currently no reliable objective measure for its diagnosis. We propose that statistical analysis of ventilatory irregularity, quantified by approximate entropy (ApEn), could be used to detect BPD when applied to cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) data. We hypothesized that ApEn of ventilatory variables (tidal volume (VT ), breathing frequency (Bf ), minute ventilation (VE )) would be greater, i...

Arm-crank ergometry may be useful in patients unable to pedal, for instance due to peripheral arterial disease. Twenty participants with small abdominal aortic aneurysm undertook two serial arm-crank tests and then a pedal test, four of whom had indeterminate anaerobic thresholds, precluding analysis. The mean (SD) peak arm and leg oxygen consumptions in 16 participants were 13.71 (2.62) ml.kg-1 .min-1 and 16.82 (4.44) ml.kg-1 .min-1 , with mean (SD) individual differences of 3.11 (2.48) ml.kg-1 .min-1 , p = 0...
