about

Maximum oxygen uptake during exercise is one of the best predictors of operative mortality and of prognosis in chronic cardiac or respiratory disease. Cardio-pulmonary exercise (CPEX) tests are therefore an increasingly common component of pre-operative assessment and the management ofpatients with chronic cardiopulmonary problems. Part of the Oxford Respiratory Medicine Library (ORML) series, this pocketbook guides clinicians through the parameters measured in CPEX testing so that they can understand the underlying physiology and are able to interpret the results. Clinical scenarios, common patterns, key points, and practicaltips all make this book easy to follow, even for those readers who have little prior knowledge of the subject.
