New non-invasive stress test finds earliest signs of heart disease according to ABC Action News (featuring Quark CPET)
An interesting special feature was broadcasted on ABC Action News programme highlighting the importance of the cardio pulmonary exercise test.
Medical experts say the traditional treadmill stress test relies on ECGs and only partially assesses the heart and nothing else. On the other hand, Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Test (CPET), with also measurement of respiratory gases can determine heart failure, heart disease and pulmonary problems.
As cardiologist Benedict S. Maniscalco says, "You get to combine cardiac function with pulmonary function, and they're inseparable, and detect whether or not there's an appropriate response to exercise by both the lungs and the heart."
Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Test on this special feature were performed with COSMED metabolic cart Quark CPET.
