The article presents information about papers that were discussed in the 4th Québec International Symposium on Cardiopulmonary Prevention. The paper "Submaximal Exercise Testing in Patients With Heart Failure: Revisiting the Constant Load Exercise Protocol" investigates and describes two different constant load exercise protocols in patients with HF. The paper "lmproved lschemic Tolerance Conferred by Exercise Training in Untreated Spontaneously Diabetic BB Wor Rats" determine whether exercise training prevented the depression in left ventricular function and improved ischemic tolerance of the myocardium in this genetic model of type 1 diabetes.
