Comorbid Chronic Lung Disease on Heart Failure

2019-10-31 14:29:39 | BioPortfolio


Comorbid chronic lung disease (CLD) increases mortality in heart failure (HF) patients. Understanding the predictors and pathophysiology of HF can improve the efficacy of HF treatment. This study evaluated the cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) results to identify significant predictors on long-term outcomes in HF patients with CLD.


The CPET was administered in a cohort of 169 HF outpatients with exercise intolerance at a tertiary referral center between May 2007 and July 2010. A CLD was defined as abnormal spirometry accompanied by clinical symptoms and signs included in the Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease criteria. The primary endpoint was defined as CV mortality or the first HF hospitalization. Totally 49 events occurred before the end of follow up in January 2018.

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Interstitial Lung Disease

In patients with Interstitial lung diseases (ILD) dyspnea is the most often symptom. Pulmonary lung function tests often do not Show the dyspnea. Aim of the study is to evaluate cardiopulm...

Exercise Capacity in COPD

In this study, cardiopulmonary exercise will be assessed to characterize the relevance of severity of COPD and coexisting cardiovascular comorbidities for exercise capacity.

The Inter and Intra Reliability of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Patients

Exercise testing is commonly being used in patients before surgery to test their overall fitness. One group it is being used in is patients who have an enlarged blood vessel in their stoma...

Effect of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing(CPET) in Patient With Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Nasal CPAP will improve cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) performance in patients with overlap syndrome(COPD and OSA). Nasal CPAP is proven to improve cardiopulmonary exercise testing i...

Effects of intradialytic exercise on cardiopulmonary capacity in chronic kidney disease: systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials.

Patients with chronic kidney disease show poorer functional and cardiorespiratory capacity than healthy individuals, and these impairments result in sedentarism. The aim of this study was to conduct a...

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing, Impedance Cardiography and Reclassification of Risk in Patients Referred for Heart Failure Evaluation.

An impaired cardiac output response to exercise is a hallmark of chronic heart failure (HF). We determined the extent to which impedance cardiography (ICG) during exercise in combination with cardiopu...

A Feasibility Trial of Two Rehabilitation Models in Severe Cardiopulmonary Illness.

The purpose of this study was to compare functional capacity and daily activity between two exercise rehabilitation interventions in severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or heart failur...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The artificial substitution of heart and lung action as indicated for HEART ARREST resulting from electric shock, DROWNING, respiratory arrest, or other causes. The two major components of cardiopulmonary resuscitation are artificial ventilation (RESPIRATION, ARTIFICIAL) and closed-chest CARDIAC MASSAGE.

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.

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.

ANGINA PECTORIS or angina-like chest pain with a normal coronary arteriogram and positive EXERCISE TEST. The cause of the syndrome is unknown. While its recognition is of clinical importance, its prognosis is excellent. (Braunwald, Heart Disease, 4th ed, p1346; Jablonski Dictionary of Syndromes & Eponymic Diseases, 2d ed). It is different from METABOLIC SYNDROME X, a syndrome characterized by INSULIN RESISTANCE and HYPERINSULINEMIA, that has increased risk for cardiovascular disease.
