BACKGROUND Peak oxygen consumption (Vo(2)) is routinely assessed in patients with heart failure undergoing cardiopulmonary exercise testing. The purpose of the present investigation was to determine the prognostic ability of several established peak Vo(2) prediction equations in a large heart failure cohort. METHODS AND RESULTS One thousand one hundred sixty-five subjects (70% males; age, 57.0+/-13.8 years; ischemic etiology, 43%) diagnosed with heart failure underwent cardiopulmonary… CONTINUE READING
