Perception of symptoms is out of proportion to cardiac pathology in patients with "diastolic heart failure" (2008)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Cleland, J. G., & 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. https://doi.org/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 ha...

Prognostic value and diagnostic potential of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with chronic heart failure (2008)
Journal Article
Ingle, L. (2008). Prognostic value and diagnostic potential of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with chronic heart failure. European journal of heart failure, 10(2), 112-118. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ejheart.2007.12.011

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is a well established technique for stratifying cardiovascular risk in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). Important prognostic variables include a reduced peak oxygen uptake which has a central use in c...

Combining the ventilatory response to exercise and peak oxygen consumption is no better than peak oxygen consumption alone in predicting mortality in chronic heart failure (2008)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Witte, K. K., Cleland, J. G. F., & Clark, A. L. (2008). Combining the ventilatory response to exercise and peak oxygen consumption is no better than peak oxygen consumption alone in predicting mortality in chronic heart failure. European journal of heart failure, 10(1), 85-88. doi:10.1016/j.ejheart.2007.10.010

Background: A low peak oxygen uptake (pV(O2)) and steep V-E/V-CO2 slope are independently associated with a worse prognosis in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF). We wished to confirm whether combining these variables as a ratio would lead to...
