Monitoring Systems, Physiologic, Stress Exercise, Pulmonary
Definition : Stress exercise physiologic monitoring systems designed to evaluate the pulmonary response of a person to physical stress while the individual is performing exercise on a treadmill or a bicycle ergometer. These systems usually include an exercise machine, an oxygen analyzer (e.g., solid electrolyte sensor, spectrometer, paramagnet), a carbon dioxide analyzer (e.g., infrared), and a mouthpiece attached to tubing that is connected to the gas analyzers. Some systems also incorporate pyrometers to measure respiratory volumes and capacities (e.g., inspiratory, expiratory). Typically, the patient performs the test following a protocol that follows steady, incremental, or ramp workloads. Pulmonary stress exercise monitoring systems are used to diagnose and monitor the course of pulmonary diseases.
