Discover what exercise testing can reveal aboutcardiopulmonary, vascular, and muscular health. Now in its Fifth Edition, Principlesof Exercise Testing and Interpretation continues to deliver timelyinformation on the physiology and pathophysiology of exercise and theirrelevance to clinical medicine.
The text begins by explaining the processes by which cells receiveoxygen and dispose of carbon dioxide produced as a byproductof exercise and metabolism. By measuring gas exchange, we can better evaluatecardiovascular and cardiopulmonary functioning, as well as cellularrespiration. Detailed discussions explore various types of exerciseintolerance, their effects on test results, and clinical diagnoses. Usingreal-world cases, the text illustrates how cardiopulmonary exercisetesting can evaluate the functional competency of each component in thecoupling of cellular to external respiration, including the cardiovascularsystem. Expert authors comments, analysis, and conclusions for each case, helpto improve readers interpretive and diagnostic skills.
