Abstract The relationship between lung and heart diseases has long been recognized, with necropsy studies demonstrating silent myocardial infarctions or coronary artery calcification in patients with advanced emphysema as the death cause. Improvements in non-invasive techniques and epidemiologic approaches established that lung and cardiovascular diseases frequently coexist in mid and late life. Even among those without diagnosed lung disease, lower than expected forced vital capacity, forced ex...

Background Maximal inspiratory pressure (PImax) and 6-minutes walk distance test (6MWD) may be more available and feasible alternatives for prognostic assessment than cardiopulmonary testing. We hypothesized that the PImax and 6MWD combination could improve their individual accuracy as risk predictors. We aimed to evaluate PImax ability as a mortality predictor in HF and whether the combination to 6MWD could improve risk stratification. Methods Prospective cohort from HF Clinics of three Univers...

Importance Undifferentiated dyspnea is common in late life, but the relative contribution of subclinical cardiac dysfunction is unknown. Impairments in cardiac structure and function may be characteristics of undifferentiated dyspnea in elderly people, providing potential insights into occult heart failure (HF). Objective To quantify the association of undifferentiated dyspnea with cardiac dysfunction after accounting for other potential contributors. Design, Setting, and Participants This cross...

Background Maximal inspiratory pressure (MIP) and 6-minute walk distance test (6MWT) are considered more available and feasible alternatives for prognostic assessment in heart failure (HF) than gold standard cardiopulmonary testing. However, their combined value in HF mortality risk was not yet established. Objectives To evaluate MIP ability as a mortality predictor in HF and whether its combination with 6MWT could improve risk stratification. Methods: Prospective cohort from HF Clinics of three...
