Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) provides valuable clinical information, including peak ventilation (VEpeak), which has been shown to have diagnostic and prognostic value in the assessment of patients with underlying pulmonary disease. This report provides reference standards for VEpeak derived from CPX on treadmills in apparently healthy individuals.

Peak exercise V̇O is a primary marker of prognosis in heart failure (HF). The pathophysiology of impaired peak V̇O is unclear in patients. To what extent alveolar airway function impacts V̇O during...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive and disabling disease that has been associated with aging. Several factors may potentially impair performance during exercise in elderly p...
Exercise ventilation/perfusion matching in continuous-flow left ventricular assist device recipients (LVAD) has not been studied systematically. Twenty-five LVAD and two groups of 15 reduced ejection ...
The purpose of the quality standards document is to provide healthcare professionals, commissioners, service providers and patients with a guide to standards of care that should be met for the provisi...
Oxygen uptake (V̇O) at peak workload and anaerobic threshold (AT) workload are often used for grading heart failure (HF) severity and predicting all-cause mortality. The clinical relevance of respira...
Volume controlled ventilation(VCV) is a most common used ventilation mode during general anesthesia. But VCV can cause high airway peak pressure when patient under steep Trendelenberg posi...
Carbon dioxide insufflations of abdomen are integral part of laparoscopic operations in minimally invasive surgery era. It does cause splinting effect on diaphragm movement and set it high...
Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is recommended for preoperative evaluation and risk stratification of lung resection candidates. Ventilatory efficiency (VE/VCO2 slope) has been shown to p...
Approximately 50% of preterm infants less than 32 weeks require respiratory assistance at the time of transition at birth. For that stabilization during resuscitation is successful, it is ...
Patients of the University Hospital Göttingen with echocardiographic signs for diastolic heart failure and indication for right heart catheterisation will undergo additional diagnostic te...
A basis of value established for the measure of quantity, weight, extent or quality, e.g. weight standards, standard solutions, methods, techniques, and procedures used in diagnosis and therapy.
A method of recording heart motion and internal structures by combining ultrasonic imaging with exercise testing (EXERCISE TEST) or pharmacologic stress.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
Controlled physical activity, more strenuous than at rest, which is performed in order to allow assessment of physiological functions, particularly cardiovascular and pulmonary, but also aerobic capacity. Maximal (most intense) exercise is usually required but submaximal exercise is also used. The intensity of exercise is often graded, using criteria such as rate of work done, oxygen consumption, and heart rate.
Ventilatory support system using frequencies from 60-900 cycles/min or more. Three types of systems have been distinguished on the basis of rates, volumes, and the system used. They are high frequency positive-pressure ventilation (HFPPV); HIGH-FREQUENCY JET VENTILATION; (HFJV); and high-frequency oscillation (HFO).
