In patients with chronic heart failure (CHF), physical exertion frequently is associated with higher than normal ventilatory levels and dyspnea. To determine the prevalence of such excessive ventilatory responses in CHF and whether this excessive ventilation is a result of acute increases in intrapulmonary pressure during exercise, minute ventilation (VE) and pulmonary artery (PA) wedge pressure were measured during maximal bicycle exercise in 38 patients with chronic CHF. It was then… CONTINUE READING
