Functional Capacity Assessment

In Exercise Prescription in Cardiac Rehabilitation, , Eds.


Exercise stress tests determine cardiovascular system response during exertion. Historically, exercise testing has been performed to provoke myocardial ischemia; however, indications have evolved over time. Exercise capacity assessment delivers crucial information for exercise prescription guidance in cardiac rehabilitation programs, and cardiopulmonary exercise testing should ideally be executed. Exercise tests are typically performed on a treadmill or stationary bike; incremental exercise tests are the gold standard.
