Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET)

Aim of task force

To provide an ERS Statement on standardisation of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) in Chronic Lung Diseases.

Patient input

A survey was developed to find out more about the experiences of individuals with a lung condition who have undertaken CPET and the findings have been fed into the work of this Task Force. A patient representative has also been involved as a member of the Task Force team.


The ERS statement on standardisation of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in chronic lung diseases was published in the European Respiratory Review in December 2019.
