Overview

This book provides a comprehensive, updated presentation of the inform ation that can be gained by cardiopulmonary exercise testing to assess the health of the cardiovascular system as a whole, and its individua l components. It heralds a new era in which the instrumentation provid es accurate measurements and the functions of the heart, pulmonary, an d peripheral circulations and the lungs can be described quantitativel y in graphical form. This enables the physician and investigator to me asure the degree of success with which the cardiovascular system suppo rts the O2 supply for the energy-generating mechanisms needed to susta in life. Anyone interested in the state of the art of cardiopulmonary exercise testing will find this book to be of great value.
