PURPOSE The aim of this study is to assess the association between peak oxygen uptake (VO2 peak), determined using a perceptually regulated 1-km walking test (1k-TWT), and all-cause mortality in cardiac patients. METHODS 1255 male patients, aged 25-85 years, completed a moderate 1k-TWT to estimate VO2 peak. Subjects were followed for all-cause mortality for up to 10 years. Cox proportional hazard models were employed to determine variables associated with mortality. Based on the estimated VO2… CONTINUE READING
