BACKGROUND Low cardiopulmonary fitness, measured by oxygen uptake peak (VO 2pk), is associated with postoperative complications and mortality. Obese people have difficulty in performing the cardiopulmonary exercise test, which requires maximal exertion. The incremental shuttle walking test (ISWT) and 6-min walking test (6MWT) have been used to assess(More)
Cardiopulmonary assessment through oxygen uptake efficiency slope (OUES) data has shown encouraging results, revealing that we can obtain important clinical information about functional status. Until now, the use of OUES has not been established as a measure of cardiorespiratory capacity in an obese adult population, only in cardiac and pulmonary diseases(More)
BACKGROUND In severely obese individuals, reducing body weight induced by bariatric surgery is able to promote a reduction in comorbidities and improve respiratory symptoms. However, cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) reflected by peak oxygen uptake (VO2peak) may not improve in individuals who remain sedentary post-surgery. The objective of this study was to(More)
