When should you recommend cardiopulmonary exercise testing? What results does it provide you as a practitioner?
Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET), utilises specialist equipment to assess an individual’s breathing and heart response to exercise as the workload is increased steadily.
This test is now widely used in clinical settings to find a cause for an individual’s breathing difficulties.
This workshop will provide insight regarding the role and value of cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in assessing these issues.
However, it will also cover what it can tell about abnormal breathing patterns and how this information may be used to help.
Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) is considered the best objective test of a person’s functional capacity – testing cardiac, pulmonary, metabolic and ventilatory systems in unison. This is commonly used in athletes but increasingly applicable to patients having major surgery.
