It is a three day meeting with internationally recognosed experts in all aspects of CPET; including pediatrics, sports medicine, preoperative assessment, medical assessment etc., etc.

A collection of papers from Eur J Prev Cardiol 2023 Vol. 30 Issue 13

Dear all

I have just sent out around 10 papers from the Eur J Prev Cardiol 2023 Vol. 30 Issue 13. The format is slightly different to usual for technical reasons!

This was a Supplementary  Issue dedicated to CPET and emanated from the Centro Cardilogico Monzino

I hope that you find them as interesting as I did.

My best regards

Group photos from CPX Practicums from Zwolle 2014 on

Dear all

It is possible for you to access and load the group photo from the Practicums from Zwolle 2014 on. There are only photos where there were actual Practicums, obviously not where they were postponed or a virtual meeting.

Proceed by accessing the website and click on ‘Practicums’ and choose the year and Practicum that you are after.

When the picture comes up take a screen shot (see below) of the photo and print it out. The definition should be OK as these photos are at 200-300 dpi. If you have aproblem with definition please contact me and I will try to increase the definition in Photoshop.

For MAC a screen shot is obtained by pressing ‘shift+command+5’ together
For a PC press ‘Widows logo+shift+S’. (this may differ with various. versios of Windows.
If you have a problem type ‘How do I take a screen shot with Windows’ in your browser.

My best regards

Correction to article by Dr Shanmugakumar Chinnappa MRCP PhD et al

The paper:

“The Interpretation of Standard Cardiopulmonary Exercise Test Indices of Cardiac Function in Chronic Kidney Disease” in the special issue “New Insights from Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing and Cardiac Rehabilitation—Part II

Was wrongly ascribed to Taiwan University.

It originated from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals in the UK

My apologies to all concerned
