Foremost among these symptoms is severe exercise intolerance with pronounced fatigue and dyspnoea at low exercise workloads....

    Lung function abnormalities both at rest and during exercise are frequently observed in patients with chronic heart failure, also in the absence of respiratory disease. Alterations of respiratory mechanics and of gas exchange capacity are strictly related to heart failure. Severe heart failure...

    Background: Patients with chronic heart failure complain of breathlessness. This is associated with an increase in the ventilatory response to carbon dioxide production (Ve/Vco2 slope), yet a reduction in the maximal ventilation achieved at peak exercise. We analysed ventilatory capacity in...
