About this title
Oxford Respiratory Medicine Library
- A practical and accessible guide for all those carrying out CPEX tests, even those with little prior knowledge
- Clinical scenarios, common patterns, key points, and practical tips all make this book easy to follow
- Guides the reader through the parameters of the test and how to interpret the results
Maximum oxygen uptake during exercise is one of the best predictors of operative mortality and of prognosis in chronic cardiac or respiratory disease. Cardio-pulmonary exercise (CPEX) tests are therefore an increasingly common component of pre-operative assessment and the management of patients with chronic cardiopulmonary problems. Part of the Oxford Respiratory Medicine Library (ORML) series, this pocketbook guides clinicians through the parameters measured in CPEX testing so that they can understand the underlying physiology and are able to interpret the results. Clinical scenarios, common patterns, key points, and practical tips all make this book easy to follow, even for those readers who have little prior knowledge of the subject.
