We subsequently performed a combined exercise echocardiography and cardiopulmonary exercise test in order to investigate the cause of the patient’s main complaint. The main results of the cardiopulmonary exercise test are summarised in Table 1, those of the exercise echocardiographic examination in Table 2.
RER: Respiratory Exchange Ratio; HR: Heart Rate; VE: Minute Ventilation; MVV: Maximal Voluntary Ventilation; VO2: Oxygen consumption; VT1: First Ventilatory threshold; OUES: Oxygen Uptake Efficiency Slope; W: Load.
W: Watt; PAPs: systolic pulmonary artery pressure; mPAP: mean pulmonary artery pressure; RV: right ventricle; FAC: fractional area change; CO: cardiac output; RVESPAR: right ventricular end-systolic pressure area relation; EF: ejection fraction; LV: left ventricle.
