Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) adds the measurement of ventilatory and metabolic parameters to classic Exercise Stress Tests. As Tthis combination is gives ing a more complete picture of the cardio-respiratory system, it and so increases the diagnostic value a lot, especially when it comes to systemic diseases or comorbidities of cardio-respiratory diseases. But the measurement of gas exchange values during exercise also opens the door for provides furtherother clinicalclinically relevant information such as exercise capacity,– VO2max and Anaerobic Threshold parameters for useful in diagnostics over areas from preoperative assessment to performance diagnosticsanalysis, the diagnostic power of which are shown in an ever increasing number of clinical studies.: exercise capacity, VO2max and Anaerobic Threshold – just to name a few of them – have shown their diagnostic power in various clinical studies.
