Overview

Discover what exercise testing can reveal about cardiopulmonary, vascular, and muscular health. Now in its Fifth Edition, Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation continues to deliver timely information on the physiology and pathophysiology of exercise and their relevance to clinical medicine.

The text begins by explaining the processes by which cells receive oxygen and dispose of carbon dioxide produced as a byproduct of exercise and metabolism. By measuring gas exchange, we can better evaluate cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary functioning, as well as cellular respiration. Detailed discussions explore various types of exercise intolerance, their effects on test results, and clinical diagnoses. Using real-world cases, the text illustrates how cardiopulmonary exercise testing can evaluate the functional competency of each component in the coupling of cellular to external respiration, including the cardiovascular system. Expert authors’ comments, analysis, and conclusions for each case, help to improve readers’ interpretive and diagnostic skills.

This in-depth resource provides…

• Updated content and new graphics present the most current information in a reader-friendly format.
• Updated flow charts detail clinical presentations and differential diagnosis
• More than 80 case presentations improve diagnostic accuracy.
• Normal test values for a wide range of patient groups provide a basis for comparison and help to identify abnormalities.
• Companion website includes the complete text, PLUS 30 additional case presentations.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Brian W. Rieger
This is the third edition of an in-depth look at the physiology and pathophysiology of exercise performance. Along with the most recent information on research in this area, the authors offer applied case presentations in a new chapter. The purpose is to identify the importance of measuring gas exchange in the evaluation of cardiovascular and lung function and cellular respiration. This is also a practical look at the pathophysiology of disorders contributing to low exercise tolerance. This advanced level, comprehensive book is written for physiologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, and physicians interested in the area of physiology and pathophysiology of exercise. An excellent overview of exercise testing and interpretation is highlighted at the beginning of the book. The book is well referenced and the authors provide readers with current research. A small but notable feature is the critiques on different exercise procedures and protocols. The authors not only describe findings in individuals with disorders limiting exercise tolerance, but they also include a chapter outlining normal responses to exercise for comparison. Most notably, interpretation of case studies with comments, analysis, and conclusions on each condition are included in a new chapter. The usefulness of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in diagnosis, prevention, and prescription of exercise is well documented. This edition contains up-to-date information and advances by leading authorities in the field. Although not aesthetically pleasing, tables and figures provide clear and concise information for the reader. This book is an excellent source for cardiopulmonary exercise testing and its applications.

Designed to assist the reader's understanding, clinical performance abilities, and interpretation skills in the area of cardiopulmonary testing, this text spans the field, from basic concepts in exercise physiology to the practical aspects of delivering a meaningful report for the medical record. It includes discussion of testing protocols, the effects of cardiovascular and respiratory disorders, and interpretation of results. Eighty-four clinical cases highlight the process of differential diagnosis by applying basic interpretation techniques to real-world situations. Wasserman and three co-editors are all affiliated with the UCLA School of Medicine; Whipp is at St. George's Hospital Medical School. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
