PURPOSE Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is increasingly used as a biomarker of fitness in children. Maximal or peak values remain the most common variables obtained in CPET, but these physiologically challenging high-intensity work rates (WR) are often not achieved. We hypothesized that interactions of gas exchange, heart rate (HR), and WR CPET variables (slopes) could yield useful mechanistic and clinical insights that might enhance the clinical utility of CPET in children. We further… CONTINUE READING
