CPET – Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

A cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) is an evaluation of the cardiopulmonary system.

Physical exercise requires the interaction of the physiologic mechanisms that enable the cardiovascular and respiratory systems to support the energy demands of the contracting muscles.  Both systems are consequently stressed during exercise. Their ability to respond adequately to this stress is a measure of their physiologic competence.

  • Studies are performed under the direction of the cardiology and pulmonary divisions
  • Emphasis of testing may be influenced by the requesting division
    • Cardiac patients have more detailed electrocardiogram (ECG)/hemodynamic monitoring during testing
    • Pulmonary patient studies may include bronchial provocation with exercise testing
  • Exercise modalities
    • Bicycle ergometer
    • Treadmill
    • Selection of modality and protocol are dependent upon the requesting physician, level of fitness and health, weight, age, and patient preference

Model O2CPX – Cardiopulmonary Exercise Analyzer

The Model O2CPX is a table top analyzer used to monitor performance parameters during exercise testing. Breath-by-breath O2, CO2 and flow rate is measured precisely and accurately with internal sensors. Heart rate and pulse oximetry interfaces are compatible with Polar and Nonin accessories. Ambient temperature, humidity and barometric pressure is acquired for precise measurement correction. Our reliable solid state oxygen sensor does not require routine maintenance or factory calibration. Our O2CPX hardware easily collaborates with customer software solutions via USB interface.
