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

Two new Board members

At the recent Board Meeting in Munich two new Board Members were appointed to replace the two outgoing members.

The outgoing members are Professor Franz Kleber and Professor Paolo Palange. We are indebted to both these Board members for their invaluable assistance over some years. They will still remain as members of the Practicum Faculty.

The two new members are Professor Doctor Alfred Hager and Dr Daniel Dumitrescu.Both these people will be known to many of you and we wish them all the best in their new appointment.

The 2016 Practicum to be held in Milan 26th to 28th October 2016

European2016 Practicum on Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing 2016

‘Click’ on this link to see the entire programme for this important event.

Dear colleague,
the 2016 annual CPX International congress “European Practicum on Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing” will be held in Italy after 10 years since the last Italian edition. The congress will last from 26 to 29 October 2016 and the venue will be Centro Cardiologico Monzino, in Milan.
It is a very important event for all of us who are at the forefront in this field. Wasserman himself may come to Italy, but, since he is more than 90 years old, he could renounce.
I send you attached the official brochure of the congress with the scientific program.
The course is very intensive and gives a wide view across the CPX world.
For the first time we are going to offer three prizes of $1.500 each for the best three abstracts that will be presented on Saturday morning.

Thank you for your participation and advertising that you will give to the event.
Best regards,

Prof. Piergiuseppe Agostoni
CPX International President
Chief of Heart Failure, Clinical Cardiology and Rehabilitation Unit
