Journal Article
Ingle, L., Goode, K., Carroll, S., Sloan, R., Boyes, C., Cleland, J. G., & Clark, A. L. (2007). Prognostic value of the VE/VCO2 slope calculated from different time intervals in patients with suspected heart failure. International journal of cardiology, 118(3), 350-355. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2006.07.105

Background: Maximal exercises testing, whether involving cycling- or walking-based protocols, are often not well tolerated in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). The peak oxygen consumption and the slope of the relation between ventilation (V... Read More

Clinical determinants of poor six-minute walk test performance in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and no major structural heart disease (2006)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Rigby, A. S., Nabb, S., Jones, P. K., Clark, A. L., & Cleland, J. G. (2006). Clinical determinants of poor six-minute walk test performance in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction and no major structural heart disease. European journal of heart failure, 8(3), 321-325. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejheart.2005.08.006

Background: The clinical determinants of six-minute walk test (6-MWT) performance in patients with left ventricular systolic dysfunction (LVSD) have rarely been investigated, and it is not clear whether they differ from patients referred for the asse... Read More
