OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to characterize the kinetics of cardiac output during recovery from maximal exercise in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). BACKGROUND Recent studies have shown that oxygen uptake kinetics during recovery from exercise are delayed in patients with CHF. However, the kinetics of cardiac output during recovery from maximal exercise in CHF has not been examined. METHODS Thirty patients with CHF performed maximal upright ergometer exercise with… CONTINUE READING
