PURPOSE Kinetics of VO2 at onset of constant work rate exercise was previously shown to be slowed in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) compared with that in healthy normals. Because bicycle ergometry with ramp protocol is usually used for exercise testing with CHF patients, it would be of practical importance if it can be shown that a delay in the time interval of linear increase of VO2 (TILIV) to work rate occurs after beginning ramp exercise. Data of central hemodynamics (CHF) and… CONTINUE READING
