Using a practical case-based approach, this highly interactive session will provide the opportunity for delegates to grow their understanding and expertise in Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET). Beginners will find value in the foundational principles and cases discussed, while all attendees will appreciate the more complex examples and pearls shared by renowned experts. Faculty will offer their expert assessment and insight, allowing attendees to sharpen their own interpretation and understanding.

Learning objectives
At the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • describe normal exercise physiology and patterns of exercise response;
  • describe the indications, limitation and utility of CPET in the clinical setting; and
  • undertake an evidence-informed and precise CPET interpretation in a variety of common clinical settings and disease states.
