It has been suggested that shallow slopes of mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPPA)–cardiac output (Q) relationships and pulmonary transit of agitated contrast during exercise may be associated with a higher maximal aerobic capacity V(O(2)max). If so, individuals with a higher V(O(2)max) could also exhibit a higher pulmonary vascular distensibility and increased pulmonary capillary blood volume during exercise. Exercise stress echocardiography was performed with repetitive injections of agitated… CONTINUE READING
