Changes In Oxygen Uptake In Women Cardiac Rehabilitation Patients as Measured by a Self-paced Cycle Ergometer Test; The King 6-Minute Cycle Test


The need to measure functional capacity and write an individualized exercise prescription in cardiac rehabilitation patients prior to beginning a Cardiac Rehabilitation Program has been grossly underutilized over the last decade. A simple, but valid and reliable test, might make this evaluation and prescription possible. The approved King 6-Minute Cycle Test (6 MC) was previously validated and the reliability established when compared to the American Thoracic Society (ATS) 6-Minute Walk Test.
