Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) can be done for either clinical testing of symptoms or athletic performance evaluation. The CPET Lab provides comprehensive testing and evaluation of peak VO2 for athletes requiring performance evaluation, with or without a variety of heart and lung conditions to determine whether it is the heart, lungs or skeletal muscles that limits exercise capacity.
