OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to evaluate the predictive accuracy of a cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPX) score. BACKGROUND Cardiopulmonary exercise test responses, including peak VO(2), markers of ventilatory inefficiency (eg, the VE/VCO(2) slope and oxygen uptake efficiency slope [OUES]), and hemodynamic responses, such as heart rate recovery (HRR) and chronotropic incompetence (CRI) are strong predictors of outcomes in patients with heart failure (HF). However, there is a need for… CONTINUE READING
