Maximal dyspnea on exertion during cardiopulmonary exercise testing is related to poor prognosis and echocardiography with tissue Doppler imaging in heart failure.

Abstract

This study tested the hypothesis that increasing levels of maximal dyspnea on exertion (DOE) during cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) is associated with heart failure (HF) disease severity and worsening prognosis. Three hundred seventy-six HF patients underwent CPX where ventilatory efficiency (minute ventilation/carbon dioxide production; VE/VCO(2… (More)
