Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation

Including Pathophysiology and Clinical Applications

Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation

A comprehensive, practical, and current volume for physiologists, physicians, and technicians interested in exercise physiology, pathophysiology, and testing. It describes how to evaluate patients with exercise intolerance using the physiology and pathophysiology of gas exchange as frames of reference. The final chapter consists of 79 case presentations, serving as an atlas of disorders that result in exercise limitation. Detailed practical information is provided in the appendices to assist readers in setting up a laboratory, in testing subjects, and in making necessary calculations.

Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation

"In this fifth edition of Principles of Exercise Testing and Interpretation, as in earlier editions, we attempt to develop conceptual advances in the physiology and pathophysiology of exercise, particularly as related to the practice of medicine. The underlying theme of the book continues to be the recognition that the most important requirement for exercise performance is transport of oxygen to support the bioenergetic processes in the muscle cells (including, of course, the heart) and elimination of the carbon dioxide formed as a byproduct of exercise metabolism. Thus, appropriate cardiovascular and ven- tilatory responses are required to match those of muscle respiration in meeting the energy demands of exercise. As depicted by the logo on the book cover, normal exercise performance requires an efficient coupling of external to internal (cellular) respiration. Appropriate treatment of exercise intolerance requires that patients' symptoms be thought of in terms of a gas exchange defect between the cell and the environment. The defect may be in the lungs, heart, peripheral or pulmonary circulations, the muscles themselves, or there may be a combination of defects. Thus, we describe the pathophysiology in gas transport and exchange that affect any site in the cardio- respiratory coupling between the lungs and the muscles. We illustrate how cardiopulmonary exercise testing can provide the means for a critical evaluation by the clinician-scientist of the functional competency of each component in the coupling of cellular to external respiration, including the cardiovascular system. To achieve this, clinical cases are used to illustrate the wide spectrum of pathophysiology capable of causing exercise intolerance"--Provided by publisher.

Sport and Exercise Physiology Testing Guidelines: Volume II – Exercise and Clinical Testing

The British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences Guide

Sport and Exercise Physiology Testing Guidelines: Volume II – Exercise and Clinical Testing

Sport and exercise physiologists are called upon to carry out physiological assessments that have proven validity and reliability, both in sport-specific and health-related contexts. A wide variety of test protocols have been developed and refined. This book is a comprehensive guide to these protocols and to the key issues relating to physiological testing. Volume I will cover sport-specific testing, and Volume II clinical and exercise testing. With contributions from many leading specialist physiologists, and covering a wide range of mainstream sports, special populations, and ethical, practical and methodological issues, these volumes represent an essential resource for sport-specific and clinical exercise testing in both research and applied settings.
