Table 3 Exercise measurements

From: Does left atrial volume affect exercise capacity of heart transplant recipients?

Variables N = 50
Baseline heat rate (bpm) 89 ± 14
Baseline systolic blood pressure (mmHg) 125 ± 18
Baseline diastolic blood pressure (mmHg) 78 ± 11
Baseline pressure rate product (bpm·mmHg·103) 1.09 ± 0.20
Peak exercise heart rate (bpm) 134 ± 18*
Peak exercise systolic blood pressure (mmHg) 161 ± 27*
Peak exercise diastolic blood pressure (mmHg) 81 ± 14
Peak exercise pressure rate product (bpm·mmHg·103) 2.16 ± 0.49*
Peak respiratory exchange ratio 1.13 ± 0.09
Peak exercise oxygen consumption (ml Omin-1·kg-1) 17.7 ± 6.0
Peak exercise VE/VCO2 slope 38.7 ± 7.5
  1. Data are mean ± SD. *P < 0.01 vs. baseline measurements. bpm denotes beat per minute. The comparison of measurements between at baseline and at peak exercise was performed with a paired Student t-test.
