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...
