BACKGROUND:
Doppler echocardiography is usually the first diagnostic
investigation for patients suspected with pulmonary hypertension (PH), but it is
often inaccurate when used alone, especially in mild PH.
HYPOTHESIS: Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) may serve as a complementary
tool to improve diagnostic accuracy in echocardiography-suspected “PH possible”
patients.
METHODS: Eighty-eight consecutive patients with suspected PH (referred to as “PH
possible” hereafter) based on echocardiography were included in the study. CPET
was assessed subsequently and PH was confirmed by right-heart catheterization in
all subjects. We analyzed CPET data from patients and derived a CPET prediction
rule to hemodynamically differentiate PH.
RESULTS: Eighty-eight patients (27 patients with confirmed PH, and PH ruled out
in 61 patients) were included in the study. Compared with non-PH patients, the PH
subjects had lower peak oxygen uptake (VO2 ), aerobic capacity (AT), peak partial
pressure of end-tidal CO2 (PET CO2 ), oxygen uptake efficiency plateau (OUEP),
and oxygen uptake efficiency slope (OUES), along with higher minute ventilation
(VE)/carbon dioxide output (VCO2 ) slope and lowest VE/VCO2 (P < 0.001). VE/VCO2
slope and AT were independent predictors of PH derived from multivariate logistic
regression adjusted for age and body mass index. A score combining VE/VCO2 slope
and AT reached a high area under the curve value of 0.98. A score ≥0.5 had 95%
specificity and 92.6% sensitivity for diagnosis of PH.
CONCLUSIONS: A score combining VE/VCO2 slope and AT provides high specificity in
screening out PH from a pool of echocardiography-suspected PH patients.
