Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test - Gwinnett Pulmonary Sleep

Our Services: Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test

Diseases that affect the heart, lungs, circulation, or blood will cause an abnormal response to exercise. Exercise testing is useful to help evaluate the cause of shortness of breath that cannot be determined at rest (heart vs. lungs). It also may be useful in the diagnosis of the following conditions:


Myocardial Dysfunction

Abnormal blood pressure response to exercise

Poor circulation

Pulmonary Hypertension

Exercise-induced asthma


Hyperventilation syndromes

Muscular weakness


Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is a non-invasive and objective method of evaluating cardiac and pulmonary function. It allows a very accurate assessment of possible cardiac failure in a quantified fashion.
