The response to cardiopulmonary exercise (CPX) in patients with heart failure (HF) with normal left ventricular (LV) ejection fractions (EFs) is not well characterized. To determine if CPX testing could distinguish between patients with HF with normal EFs (>50%; i.e., diastolic HF) and those with decreased EFs (> or =50%; i.e., systolic HF), CPX responses were compared between 185 patients with systolic HF (79% men, mean age 62.6 +/- 10.9 years) and 43 with diastolic HF (54% men, mean age 67.4… CONTINUE READING
