Perception of symptoms is out of proportion to cardiac pathology in patients with "diastolic heart failure'' (2007)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Cleland, J. G. F., & Clark, A. L. (2008). Perception of symptoms is out of proportion to cardiac pathology in patients with "diastolic heart failure''. Heart, 94(6), 748-753. doi:10.1136/hrt.2007.131144

Background: Epidemiological studies suggest that "diastolic heart failure'' (DHF) is common and has a prognosis similar to that of systolic heart failure (SHF). We wanted to assess whether patients with breathlessness who were being treated for DHF h...

The prognostic value of cardiopulmonary exercise testing with a peak respiratory exchange ratio of < 1.0 in patients with chronic heart failure (2007)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Witte, K. K., Cleland, J. G., & Clark, A. L. (2008). The prognostic value of cardiopulmonary exercise testing with a peak respiratory exchange ratio of < 1.0 in patients with chronic heart failure. International journal of cardiology, 127(1), 88-92. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2007.04.075

Background: Peak oxygen consumption derived from a maximal cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) is a standard prognostic indicator in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Tests with a peak respiratory exchange ratio (pRER) < 1.0 are often tak...

Changes in body composition in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction initiated on beta-blocker therapy (2007)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Rigby, A. S., Carroll, S., Butterly, R., King, R. F., Cooke, C. B., …Clark, A. L. (2007). Changes in body composition in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction initiated on beta-blocker therapy. Experimental and Clinical Cardiology, 12(1), 46-47

Background: Increasing body mass index, cholesterol and body fat are associated with a better prognosis in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD). Beta-blocker usage is associated with changes in body composition and increased bod...

Cardiorespiratory requirements of the 6-min walk test in older patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and no major structural heart disease (2007)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Wilkinson, M., Carroll, S., Boyes, C., Butterly, R., King, R., …Clark, A. (2007). Cardiorespiratory requirements of the 6-min walk test in older patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and no major structural heart disease. International journal of sports medicine, 28(8), 678-684. https://doi.org/10.1055/s-2007-964886

The six-minute walk test (6-MWT) is widely used to assess functional status in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). The aims of the present study were: (1) to compare metabolic gas exchange during the 6-MWT in older patients with left ventricul...

Prognostic value of the 6 min walk test and self-perceived symptom severity in older patients with chronic heart failure (2007)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Rigby, A. S., Carroll, S., Butterly, R., King, R. F., Cooke, C. B., …Clark, A. L. (2007). Prognostic value of the 6 min walk test and self-perceived symptom severity in older patients with chronic heart failure. European Heart Journal, 28(5), 560-568. https://doi.org/10.1093/eurheartj/ehl527

Background: The 6 min walk test (6-MWT) is a simple and popular test for evaluating functional status in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). However, the prognostic value of the 6-MWT in a large, representative sample of CHF patients, and in p...

Efficacy of lifestyle intervention on peak exercise cardiac power output and reserve in premenopausal obese females: A randomised pilot study (2007)
Journal Article
Carroll, S., Marshall, P., Borkoles, E., Ingle, L., Barker, D., & Tan, L. B. (2007). Efficacy of lifestyle intervention on peak exercise cardiac power output and reserve in premenopausal obese females: A randomised pilot study. International journal of cardiology, 119(2), 147-155. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2006.07.099

Background: Clinically obese women have a two-fold increased risk for the development of heart failure. Among younger premenopausal females, obesity has been associated with cardiac remodelling and impaired resting systolic and diastolic function. Ho...
