Prognostic value of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Heart Failure with preserved Ejection Fraction. The Henry Ford HospITal CardioPulmonary EXercise Testing (FIT-CPX) Project.
The American Heart Journal published a new article on the prognostic value of Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Test (CPX) in heart failure (HF) patients.
Although cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) is well established, there is limited data on the value of CPX variables in patients with HF and preserved EF (HFpEF). The study sought to determine the prognostic value of select CPX measures in patients with HFpEF.
The study findings support the prognostic utility of peak VO2 and ppMVO2 in patients with HFpEF. The study can be purchased at the following link: click here
