Patients with heart failure frequently exhibit an excessive ventilatory response to exercise, which is acutely unaltered by therapeutic interventions. To investigate whether these ventilatory responses resolve after cardiac transplantation, 15 ambulatory patients with severe heart failure underwent exercise testing with measurement of respiratory gases before and 1.4 +/- 0.6 years [corrected] after transplantation. Ventilatory response was also measured in 7 age-matched, sedentary control… CONTINUE READING
