Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing provides an assessment of the integrative exercise responses involving the pulmonary, cardiovascular, haematopoietic, neuropsychological, and skeletal muscle systems.
LifeMax together with our international partner Customed and Heinz Lowis specialist in Cardiac Rehabilitation, hosted our first Cardiac Rehabilitation workshop. We welcomed an enthusiastic group from different parts of Southern Africa. Thank you to all of those that joined us and we hope to see you all again soon!
Our world is becoming more and more connected and one of the major trends seen emerging is the interface and integration of different technologies. We believe that big data and analytics will influence the demand on the health sector to deliver on an "evidence based approach" and that the health professionals that consider this now by investing in connectable technologies will be better positioned to leverage themselves and/or their practices.
Why is Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing a powerful Risk Assessment Tool in Pre Operative Assessments?
1.It is integrative: Cardiopulmonary exercise provides a global assessment of the integrative responses of the pulmonary, cardiovascular & hematological systems that are not adequately reflected through the measurement of individual organ system function. This is in contrast to tests assessing the function of a single organ in isolation.
