Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

Description

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) has been in use for decades although modern technology with fast gas analyzers has increased its feasibility. Complexity in interpretation has impaired its widespread acceptability. As a result, CPX is still underutilized in conditions which manifest with exercise-related symptoms. CPX adds value in terms of greater understanding of the physiological derangements in disease, end-points for evaluation of responses to clinical and research therapies, and use in patient management.

We take an interest in manuscripts which increase the applicability of CPX in the clinical arena. In addition, we value manuscripts which highlight the utility of CPX as a tool in research studies. Finally, we are looking for submissions which use CPX to further the physiological understanding of different diseases. Reviews which summarize any of these applications of CPX are also welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • CPX in preoperative risk assessment
  • CPX in evaluation and management in cardiopulmonary conditions
  • CPX as a prognostic tool
  • Novel insights into pathophysiology using CPX
  • CPX is the analysis of dyspnea of unknown origin

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/pm/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
