Joint EACPR and AHA statement empowers health care professional to use Clinical Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing
Date:9/6/2012

Sophia Antipolis, 6 September 2012: The European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation (EACPR), a registered branch of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC), and the American Heart Association (AHA) have today issued a joint scientific statement http://eurheartj.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2012/08/24/eurheartj.ehs221.short?rss=1 that sets out to produce easy-to-follow guidance on Clinical Cardiopulmonary Exercise (CPX) testing based on current scientific evidence. The document, which has been published simultaneously online in the European Heart Journal and Circulation, is intended to stimulate greater uptake of clinically warranted CPX assessments and potentially open the way for the initiation of multi-centre international trials utilising the technology.

For each indication we've paired the information down to an easily digestible one page report," says Marco Guazzi, M.D., The European co-chair of the writing group.

The statement, which is viewed as a major step-forward, represents the first joint statement produced by the EACPR and AHA. "The purpose of producing joint recommendations is to deliver an internationally consistent statement that will prevent confusion with respect to the most relevant information gained from a CPX for a given patient. Providing universal reporting recommendations may also facilitate international multicentre trials using CPX as a study endpoint when appropriate," explains Ross Arena, M.D., the American co-chair of the writing group.
