Abstract

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is a valuable but underutilized tool in congenital cardiology. This diagnostic test allows for objective quantification of exercise limitation and enables the clinician to determine the source of the patient's exercise impairment. This article will discuss the abundance of information which can be garnished from the cardiopulmonary exercise stress test.
