Broad Overview Of Methods Of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

The performance of clinical exercise testing (2). This applies to the methods used, variables being measured, and interpretive techniques. There are a number of predicted formulas that can be used to calculate the maximum VO2, work rate, heart rate, and minute ventilation (1,2,4). Exercise tests can be noninvasive, symptom limited, steady state, performed with arterial blood sampling, or with the presence of a pulmonary artery catheter (2). In addition, the tests can be conducted on various types of equipment treadmill, cycle ergometer, step testing, or using an arm ergometer. The tests can be performed on room air or on supplemental oxygen. Using an electrically braked cycle ergometer leads to a more predictable increase in oxygen uptake than with a treadmill (2), using a treadmill results in an approx 7 higher oxygen consumption than a cycle (5), increases in ventilation and blood lactate levels tend to be higher in cycling (6). The work performed on a treadmill is dependent on the...

Why Is Exercise Used To Stress The Heart In A Patient With Angina

Exercise is a way to stress the heart by getting the patient to cycle or walk fast on a treadmill. The faster the heart beats and the higher the pressure it generates in order to push blood around the body to the muscles of the legs (the biggest muscles in the body), the more oxygen it needs. If the heart has a normal blood supply (the heart arteries are normal), then the patient should not get any angina while exercising and there should be no changes in the electrical recording of the heart (ECG) during the test (true negative).

Ecg Exercise Stress Test

After ruling out an AMI or an unstable angina, a graded exercise test (52) prior to discharge from the ED may assist in the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD) and result in more appropriate referral (53-61). In a study of patients evaluated in a chest pain center located in the ED, 791 of 1010 patients underwent graded ECG exercise stress testing after 9 h of nondiagnostic serial ECG ST-segment trend monitoring 0-, 3-, 6-, and 9-h creatine kinase isoenzyme-cardiac muscle subunit (CK-MB) testing and resting echocardiography (41). None of the patients undergoing ECG exercise stress testing suffered an adverse event while being tested. Of these 791 patients, 782 (98.9 ) had a negative or nondiagnostic ECG stress test, and the positive predictive value was 44 (4 out of 9) for CAD. Thirty-day follow-up revealed a 0.1 AMI rate and 0.5 all-cause mortality rate. Two recent prospective studies have shown that this approach has high diagnostic accuracy and is cost-effective. In a study...

Perioperative Rehabilitation Program

Ischemia, telemetric monitoring may also be necessary. The focus of this program is on ambulation and regaining ADL independence, so the main exercises include ambulation training, treadmill training, and bicycle ergometry. As soon as a patient has recovered sufficiently to transfer safely, a bedside bicycle ergometer is advised to allow for increased endurance training.

Lipid lowering in peripheral arterial disease

The studies of lipid lowering in PAD are heterogeneous in terms of the type of drugs used, inclusion criteria, and outcome measures. An advantage of lipid lowering in patients with intermittent claudication, but without symptomatic CAD is that such therapy would also be expected to reduce mortality from heart disease. In addition, it might improve local symptoms such as intermittent claudication, and reduce the need for reconstructive surgery. Several studies have validated the benefits of lipid lowering on femoral atherosclerosis. These studies included symptomatic patients with intermittent claudication, as well as asymptomatic patients with critical limb ischemia identified by abnormal ankle-bra-chial index (ABI) or peripheral angiogram. Disease progression was assessed by ultrasound, angiography, ABI, and exercise capacity evaluated by treadmill testing. Additional end points evaluated were fatal and nonfatal clinical events and subjective measures such as symptom improvement.

What Is The Relation Of Physical Fitness To Future Cardiovascular Events Or Total Mortality

This question was addressed by the Lipid Research Clinics' prevalence survey in the study of4276 individuals age 30 to 69 years who were followed for an average of 8.5 years (39,40). Baseline assessment of individuals in this study included an analysis of the conventional coronary risk factors and treadmill exercise testing. The performance during maximal exercise was used as a measure of physical fitness. Men who had clinical evidence of CVD at baseline (n 649) had their records analyzed separately. Among the remaining 3106 men, 45 deaths occurred from cardiovascular causes. After adjustment for age and known cardiovascular risk factors, a lower level of physical fitness was found to be associated with overall CVD, a higher coronary mortality, and death rate from all causes. The relative risk for cardiovascular mortality for the least-fit apparently healthy men was compared with the most fit healthy men according to their exercise capacity. The relative risk for overall...

What Is The Risk Of Having Another Heart Attack

Scar tissue in the heart can be seen using ultrasound. The function of the heart and the ability of the heart arteries to deliver sufficient blood and oxygen to the muscle can be assessed with an exercise stress ECG. As a result of this test and exercise tests on a treadmill or bicycle, a coronary angiogram may be advised.

Noninvasive Evaluation

In women with acute coronary syndromes, in whom symptoms stabilize or in whom the diagnosis of coronary artery disease is uncertain, noninvasive testing is usually performed. In general, noninvasive evaluation of coronary artery disease in women is less accurate than in men, owing primarily to the lower prevalence of disease in women. The most widely employed and best studied diagnostic modality is the exercise treadmill test (28), and it is predictably problematic in women due to a lower prevalence of coronary artery disease in premenopausal women, a higher prevalence of mitral valve prolapse and hyperventilation-induced ST-segment depression, a higher incidence of hypertensive heart disease, and limited ability to exercise to an adequate heart rate response. In contrast to what is observed in men, resting ST-T wave abnormalities on an electrocardiogram in women do not predict exercise stress test outcome independent of other clinical risk factors of coronary disease (Fig. 4) (29)....

Diagnostic evaluation

High Monophasic Velocity Blood Cfa

Hemodynamic testing of the lower extremity includes noninvasive methods that evaluate the dynamic function of the circulation. Various techniques have been developed for noninvasive assessment including segmental pressures, ankle-brachial indices, continuous-wave Doppler waveform analysis, pulse volume recordings, transcutaneous oximetry, treadmill testing, and duplex scanning. Inexpensive equipment and a short learning curve have made hemodynamic testing widely used for the diagnosis of lower extremity arterial disease. Segmental pressures (ABIs) and CW waveforms at rest can be normal in patients with significant arterial lesions. This can be caused by collateral circulation providing adequate flow without significant reduction in pressure. CW waveforms can appear normal if the sample is taken distal to a lesion, where the flow has had a chance to normalize. By exercising a patient on a treadmill, the working muscles require increased blood flow. Symptoms and their severity can be...

Practical Approach To Nsvt

More frequently, NSVT is identified on an inpatient monitor when a patient is admitted for an acute issue such as exacerbation of CHF, MI, myocardial ischemia, revascularization syncope, surgery, or another issue. NSVT is also identified in outpatients with cardiovascular disease who are undergoing outpatient ambulatory monitoring or treadmill testing. The frequency with which NSVT is documented depends on the aggressiveness of inpatient and outpatient monitoring.

Hospital Interior Architecture

Typically, in such a combined setting, one might have an ergometer exercise bicycle, a treadmill, telemetry, a physical therapy-type table, ECG, spirometer, a crash cart with defibrillator and oxygen, and a desk for the tech. One may also find a computerized metabolic testing unit (Figure 3-67) used primarily with an exercise bike, occasionally with a treadmill, previously discussed. A large internal medicine suite (5000 to 7000 square feet) will have a sigmoidoscopy room, an ECG room with treadmill, and a lab with its own waiting area, blood draw, and toilet with specimen pass-through. Certain types of X-rays may be done in the office and, if so, an X-ray room with adjoining darkroom and film viewing area will be included in the suite. The business office in a suite of this size will be composed of separate rooms for transcription, business manager, insurance, medical records, bookkeeper, and receptionist. A sizable staff lounge should also be included. The reader is referred to...

Studying Thermoregulation

Physiological studies of function are of two major types. One involves measurements of activity under different thermal regimes for example, patterns of locomotion or digestion (involving specifically neural and muscular or neural, muscular, and glandular entities, respectively) may be observed at different temperatures. Often, these include observations of performance on treadmills or of rates at which food items are processed in controlled laboratory settings. On a different scale, metabolic activity itself might be linked to temperature by measuring rates of oxygen consumption in special metabolic chambers or utilization rates of products necessary for particular chemical reactions. These types of investigations have led to the determination of optimum and lethal temperatures in many species.

Metabolism and gas exchange

The influence of technique on the outcome of experimental work has also been highlighted recently in three other areas of investigation. These are the measurement of oxygen partial pressures in tissues, the importance of the coelopulse system for gas exchange and its regulation, and the 'postural effect' that might be responsible for the lack of congruence between resting metabolic rate estimates for insects running on a treadmill and those measured during quiescence. In the first instance, oxygen partial pressures in tissues are often measured using oxygen microelectrodes inserted into the tissue (Komai 1998). Although care is usually taken to assess the effects of this invasive technique, it has recently been demonstrated that tissue damage might be responsible for underestimates of pO2. The use of implanted paramagnetic crystals of lithium phthalocyanine and in vivo electron paramagnetic resonance oximetry has shown that pO2 might be considerably higher than estimated by oxygen...

Coronary Atherosclerosis

Although a standard exercise treadmill test is economical and widely available, in diabetic patients who are at an increased risk for CAD a treadmill test is less sensitive hence a stress imaging test would be more valuable. The sensitivity and specificity for the detection of coronary artery disease among patients with diabetes was 75 and 77 for the exercise test and 80 and 87 for thallium myocardial scintigraphy (5). This supports the use of noninvasive imaging tests for the detection of coronary artery disease, especially in those patients who have multiple cardiac risk factors. The sensitivity and specificity of stress echocardiography is comparable to that of nuclear SPECT imaging study in the general population, and it is reasonable to assume that the same should also be true for diabetic patients, although comparative studies are not available. The decision to refer a patient for a nuclear or echocardiographic stress test should be based on the available resources and local...

Clinical Trials

In order to determine if this theory works in practice, clinical trials were required. Some studies were conducted in which patients were given treadmill tests before and after treatment in order to demonstrate increased cardiac output. Other measures of improved heart function also were considered in these studies. Results indicated promise for the treatment.

Exercise Testing

This is done on a bicycle (like the ones in the gym) or a treadmill. Patients have to be able and willing to do the test. The purpose of an exercise test is to stress the heart by getting the patient to increase his heart rate and blood pressure. The aim is to see whether during exercise, there is enough blood getting to the heart muscle. If there isn't, this suggests that the heart arteries are blocked or narrowed. The test is also useful because it measures how much exercise the patient can do, what happens to his heart rate and blood pressure during exercise, and whether he gets chest discomfort or breathlessness during the test.

Respiratory System

Early mobilization is critical to the care of the postoperative LVRS patient. On the first postoperative day, the team ensures that the hemo-dynamically stable patient is transferred out of bed to the chair. The patient is progressed to stepping and ambulating at the bedside on the first postoperative afternoon. The postoperative LVRS patient is routinely walked, even though attached to chest tubes, epidural and foley catheters, oxygen, and a pulse oximeter. Oxygen is titrated to keep the saturation above 90 . It needs to be reinforced that these patients routinely desaturate with activity and oxygen delivery should be adjusted accordingly. The patient is progressed to walking on the treadmill, leg exercises, and unweighted arm exercises while in the hospital.

Clinical Status

Most patients with emphysema are former cigarette smokers and are also at risk for coronary artery disease (31). Because of their respiratory limitations, typical anginal symptoms may not be present. A clinical history suggesting unstable angina, a myocardial infarction within 6 mo, an S3 gallop or a history of CHF within 6 mo, a left-ventricular ejection fraction < 45 , syncope, or significant ventricular ectopy may be viewed as possible contraindications for the procedure and require cardiac clearance before proceeding. Many of these patients may not be able to complete a treadmill exercise study. Therefore, most centers suggest performing dobutamine radionuclide cardiac scanning in these patients. A positive study would require cardiac consultation before deciding whether LVRS remains an option.

How Is It Done

The test involves injecting a radioactive chemical into a vein during the exercise test (done on either a bicycle or a treadmill) and then doing a scan of the heart at peak exercise to see if the radioactive material has reached all parts of the heart. Another scan is done a few hours later, by which time all parts of the heart would have recovered and all would have the same amount of radioactive material. If a part of the heart gets less radioactive

Review Questions

A patient completes a graded, dynamic exercise test on a treadmill while showing a modest rise (25 ) in mean arterial blood pressure. In contrast, during the highest level of exercise at the end of the test, an indirect method shows that cardiac output has risen 300 from rest. These results indicate that during graded, dynamic exercise to exhaustion, systemic vascular resistance 7. In a patient with heart disease, a treadmill test involving graded dynamic exercise results in falling blood pressure at each exercise level. Eventually, faintness and dizziness cause termination of the test. These results arise from inadequate cardiac output during exercise because the baroreceptors, during exercise,
