Exercise Gas Exchange in Heart Disease

by K. Wasserman (Editor)
 

This monograph clearly presents current analysis of gas exchange during exercise and explains how applications derived from the analysis is relevant to patient care. This book systematically addresses major aspects of respiration at the airway and muscle cells and their coupling by the heart and circulations during exercise.

Overview

This monograph clearly presents current analysis of gas exchange during exercise and explains how applications derived from the analysis is relevant to patient care. This book systematically addresses major aspects of respiration at the airway and muscle cells and their coupling by the heart and circulations during exercise. It also describes modern technology in gas analysis and use of computers applied to the study of patients with heart diseases. This simplifies what was formerly a time-consuming and complicated laboratory analysis and describes the broadened application of exercise testing

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Sandra I. Reynertson, MD, FACC (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This new book, written and edited by the world's foremost authors in exercise physiology, is a reflection of the recent advances made in cardiopulmonary exercise testing with gas exchange and its present clinical applications in the evaluation of cardiac function.
Purpose: The purpose is first to explain the basic physiology of exercise testing and its coupling of external to cellular respiration. The book then expands the use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing with gas exchange to explain the pathophysiology of cardiovascular diseases on reduced exercise capacity as well as peripheral factors that may also influence cardiac function and gas exchange.
Audience: The audience consists predominantly of cardiologists and heart failure specialists, exercise physiologists, and researchers in the field of heart failure and exercise physiology.
Features: This book begins with an introductory chapter on exercise physiology and the use of gas exchange measurements during exercise to uncover cardiovascular pathophysiology. The book is then divided into four sections: the use of gas-exchange measurements to evaluate cardiovascular function; abnormal ventilator responses to exercise and their relationship to heart failure; peripheral factors affecting exercise capacity in heart disease; and current clinical applications of exercise gas exchange testing.
Assessment: This book is a concise, yet thorough summary of cardiac exercise testing with gas exchange designed not only to provide the basic understanding and application of this technique, but also to stimulate further research in this field.
