OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to identify better predictors of early death in patients with chronic left ventricular heart failure (CHF). Potential predictors, derived from cardiopulmonary exercise testing, were compared with other commonly used cardiovascular measurements. BACKGROUND The prediction of early death in patients with CHF remains challenging. METHODS Five hundred eight patients with CHF due to systolic dysfunction underwent resting cardiovascular measurements, 6-min… CONTINUE READING
