Exercise testing is performed in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy to evaluate blood pressure response, a risk factor for sudden cardiac death. The prognostic role of exercise gas exchange variables is unknown.
Methods and Results—
Between 1998 and 2010, 1898 patients (age 47±15 years, range 16–86 years; 67% male) with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy underwent […]

Cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPX) responses are strong predictors of outcomes in patients with heart failure. We recently developed a CPX score that integrated the additive prognostic information from CPX. The purpose of this study was to validate the score in a larger, independent sample of patients.
Methods and Results—
A total of 2625 […]
Cardiac arrest accounts for 600,000 deaths annually in industrialized countries. Family members who are present at the time of attempted resuscitation are at high risk for emotional and physical burdens. Being present during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) may help the family member understand… The New England Journal of Medicine: Search Results in Psychiatry
Each year, approximately 240,000 to 325,000 out-of-hospital cardiac arrests occur in the United States. These events are associated with extremely poor prognoses and median survival to discharge averaging approximately 8.4%. In comparison, it is estimated that approximately 200,000 in-hospital cardiac arrests occur annually in the United States with a mean survival to discharge averaging 21%. […]
Abstract: Background: There are no published data on the safety of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients with aortic stenosis.
Methods: In this retrospective descriptive study, we examined 347 consecutive patients with aortic stenosis who underwent cardiopulmonary exercise testing at a tertiary referral center. We recorded major events including death, nonfatal major events (cardiac arrest, symptomatic […]
