Abstract

Ergometry and maximal exercise testing in patients with pulmonary deseases is essential in the assessment of limitations for exercise performance, and consequently for the ensuing therapy. It will give insight in the weak spots in the gas transport chain via alveolar ventilation, via gas transport in the circulation, to the working muscles and the mitochondria.
