Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET)

Hello everyone,

I got a letter from my cardio team that they will be performing a CPET test during my next appointment. I had this test done last year but unsure how to dissect the test results? I referred the matter to Dr Google but unfortunately it has not been much of a help.

At my last appointment I did ask my cardiologist about the CPET results, his response was results ‘look good’ but he did not go into details, I guess due to limited time available or perhaps there were not any flags faised!.

I am keen to learn more about the results as the test throws at lot of raw data, it would be helpful to know what parameters the cardiologist is looking at or monitoring?

What sort of question should I be asking re my CPET results?

Thanks in advance.

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
