Study Published by Circulation Heart Failure Reinforces Science Behind Shape-HF Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing Device
Date:4/6/2010

Circulation Heart Failure, a journal of the American Heart Association, recently published the results from a study concluding that ventilator efficiency is more accurate than the current listing criteria for heart transplantation in identifying patients likely to derive a survival benefit from such intervention. The study conclusions reinforce the science behind the Shape-HFTM Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing system, which measures ventilation parameters including ventilatory efficiency.

(PRWEB) April 6, 2010 -- Circulation Heart Failure, a journal of the American Heart Association, recently published the results from a study concluding that ventilator efficiency (VE/VCO2 slope) is more accurate than the current listing criteria for heart transplantation in identifying patients likely to derive a survival benefit from such intervention. The study conclusions reinforce the science behind the Shape-HFTM Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing system, which measures ventilation parameters including ventilatory efficiency.

“Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPX) has been used for many years to help doctors understand the severity and prognosis in patients with chronic heart failure,” says Dean MacCarter, Ph.D., vice president of clinical studies for Shape Medical Systems Inc. “Peak CPX testing can guide physicians in their clinical decision-making, but conducting CPX tests at such levels comes with its own set of problems such as maximal physical effort by the patient, specialized training, and interpretation challenges.”

“This recent study reinforces the accuracy and reliability of measuring the VE/CO2 slope, which is a core parameter measured by the Shape-HF,” says Clarence Johnson, Shape Medical Systems President. &ldqu
