BACKGROUND Pulmonary hypertension, which is related to right ventricular (RV) failure, indicates a poor prognosis in heart failure (HF). Increased ventilatory response and exercise oscillatory ventilation (EOV) also have a negative impact. We hypothesized that the severity classification of HF and risk prediction could be improved by combining functional capacity with cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) and RV-pulmonary circulation coupling, as evaluated by the tricuspid annular plane… CONTINUE READING
