Patients with heart failure in the "intermediate range" of peak oxygen uptake: additive value of heart rate recovery and the minute ventilation/carbon dioxide output slope in predicting mortality
JOURNAL OF CARDIOPULMONARY REHABILITATION AND PREVENTION, pp. 141-146, 2012.
PURPOSE: While patients with heart failure who achieve a peak oxygen uptake (peak (V) over dotO(2)) of 10 mL.kg(-1).min(-1) or less are often considered for intensive surveillance or intervention, those achieving 14 mL.kg(-1).min(-1) or more are generally considered to be at lower risk. Among patients in the "intermediate" range of 10.1 t...More
