PURPOSE Systolic left ventricular dysfunction is a weak predictor of exercise tolerance in patients with chronic congestive heart failure. This study aimed to determine physiologic and other predictors of effort tolerance and adaptability to training in a wide variety of patients with coronary artery disease. METHODS One hundred seventy-one patients (group 0) with documented coronary artery disease and various degrees of left ventricular dysfunction were enrolled into a medically supervised… CONTINUE READING
