In heart failure (HF) patients, exercise may increase pulmonary capillary hydrostatic pressure and thereby generate pulmonary edema. If pulmonary edema developed, alveolar-capillary membrane conductance (Dm), measured immediately after exercise, would decrease. To test this hypothesis, we measured Dm before and at 2 and 60 minutes after exercise.

Abstract

In heart failure (HF) patients, exercise may increase pulmonary capillary hydrostatic pressure and thereby generate pulmonary edema. If pulmonary edema developed, alveolar-capillary membrane conductance (Dm), measured immediately after exercise, would decrease. To test this hypothesis, we measured Dm before and at 2 and 60 minutes after exercise.
