Extract

Clinical exercise testing has frequently focused on the determination of maximal or symptom-limited oxygen uptake (V̇o2). Its purpose has often been the assessment of physical working capacity, which has shown to be reduced in patents with cardiovascular disease,12 in patients with congenital disease,3 and in hypertensive patients.4 In addition, several studies have shown that a low value for maximal V̇o2 has a prognostic value for cardiovascular mortality.6 However, for activities of daily life, submaximal exercise testing is more relevant.7 A considerable amount of clinical research has been performed in this area.2,89
