Here at NHCS, both treadmill (top) and bicycle (bottom) modes of conducting CPET are available
The patient undergoes supervised breathing into a lung function machine to measure his/her basic lung functions.
The patient will be asked to either run on the treadmill or ride a stationary bicycle while wearing a specialised air-tight mask to record and measure inhaled and exhaled gases during exercise. A pulse oximeter probe will also be attached to the patient’s finger to determine oxygen saturation levels during and immediately after the test.
