Abstract:Introduction and objective: The exercise test with ramp protocol is described as the one which best adapts to physical condition of subjects with heart failure (HF). However, velocity and inclination standard increments have not been described yet. This study aimed to describe the results found after application of an exercise test with ramp protocol adjusted for subjects with HF, New York Heart Association (NYHA) class II and III. Methods: 41 subjects with mean age 46.37 ± 8.98 years and ejection fraction of … Show more
HighlightsMeasured and estimated VO2peak in CHF patients showed a moderate association.With the exception of equation 1, all equations underestimated VO2peak by up to 51%.The agreement evaluated using Bland–Altman was not consistent.
scite is a Brooklyn-based organization that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students and researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
