The article focuses on a clinical study conducted to predict exercise capacity for cardiac mortality in women with cardiovascular symptoms and in asymptomatic women. The derivation cohort included 5721 women greater than 35 years of age with the ability to walk on a treadmill at a moderate pace. For all participants, exercise capacity was estimated based on the speed and grade of a treadmill. In both derivation and validation cohorts, the rates of all-cause and cardiac mortality were greater in women with exercise capacity less than 85% of the age-predicted value than in women with exercise capacity 85% of the age-predicted value.
