Prognostic usefulness of the functional aerobic reserve in patients with heart failure.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Peak oxygen consumption derived from cardiopulmonary exercise (CPX) testing provides important prognostic information in patients with heart failure (HF). The oxygen consumption at the ventilatory threshold (VT) has also been shown to be prognostic. However, the VT cannot always be detected in patients with HF. Other variables such as the… (More)
