PURPOSE Patients with stable heart failure often wish to spend time at altitudes above those of their residence. However, it is not known whether they can safely tolerate ascent to high altitudes or what its effects on work capacity may be. SUBJECTS AND METHODS We studied 14 normal subjects and 38 patients with clinically stable heart failure, 12 of whom had normal workload [peak exercise oxygen consumption (VO(2)) greater than 20 mL/min/kg], 14 of whom had slightly diminished workload (peak… CONTINUE READING
