About the Course

This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to the principles underlying the physiological basis of cardiopulmonary exercise testing. This will allow participants to identify the indications for exercise testing and to manage the most common protocols (i.e. incremental, constant work-rate) used in clinical and rehabilitation settings. Participants will be able to familiarise themselves with the equipment and methodology involved in exercise testing and to undertake appropriate interpretation of the results.
