The ‘Fourth Training Course on the Use of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing in Cardiology’ was held on 7 and 8 November 2014 in Veruno, Italy.

The course is promoted on an annual basis by the Exercise, Basic and Translational Research Section of the EACPR, and organised in collaboration with the Exercise Pathophysiology Laboratory - Cardiac Rehabilitation Division of the Salvatore Maugeri Foundation IRCCS, Scientific Institute of Veruno, Italy, an Institution with a long-lasting experience in clinical management, functional evaluation and rehabilitation of cardiac patients.

Course objective:

The course aims to promote the knowledge and use of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in cardiology, offering participants the opportunity to meet well-known experts in the field, assist in live demonstrations of cardiopulmonary exercise testing and discuss clinical cases.

Attendance:

32 attendees from 19 countries of 4 continents participated in the course.

Programme:

Faculty presentations were followed by lively discussions, and much appreciated was the Antoine Lavoisier Lecture on ‘Heart failure with preserved vs. reduced left ventricular ejection fraction: same or different information from cardiopulmonary exercise testing?‘ given by Prof. J. Myers from the University of Stanford, CA, USA. Both the scientific content and quality of organisation of the course were ranked very high by participants, and Dr. A. Mezzani, the course Director, judged this course edition as the best ever.
