Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

Description

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) has evolved into an essential tool for better assessing and understanding various clinical symptoms, disorders, and diseases. CPET has also furthered our understanding and expertise in the research laboratory. It has been repeatedly been utilized as an independent primary research endpoint, which has provided understanding into mechanisms and responses not previously known or appreciated.

The focus of this special issue will be on recent advances in cardiopulmonary exercise testing. The special issue is intended to serve as a focus for both clinicians and researchers to discuss, to summarize, and to share latest developments and understanding in this area. Reviews that summarize diverse aspects of CPET as well as advances leading from CPET in various settings are welcome. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Techniques and methods to assess activity limitation and exercise performance
  • Establishing and maintaining an exercise laboratory
  • Mechanisms of activity limitation
  • Indications for cardiopulmonary exercise testing
  • Utility and responses in various disorders and clinical settings
  • Recent advances from research laboratories
  • Cardiopulmonary exercise testing in special circumstances
  • Future of cardiopulmonary exercise testing
