Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) extends the classic stress ECG by measuring respiratory and metabolic parameters. Since this combination provides a more complete picture of the cardiorespiratory system, it significantly increases the diagnostic value, especially when systemic diseases or comorbidities are involved. But measuring gas exchange values during exercise also opens the door to other clinically relevant information such as individual exercise capacity, VO2max, and anaerobic threshold. This makes CPET useful for diagnostic areas ranging from preoperative assessment to performance diagnostics.
With the Ergostik, Geratherm Respiratory offers a versatile CPET device - from daily clinical routine to complex clinical studies.
