Predicting the highest workload in cardiopulmonary test

Abstract

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is an objective method to evaluate both  the cardiac and pulmonary functions. It is used in different application domains, ranging from the clinical domain to sport sciences, to assess possible cardiac failures as well as athete performance. The highest workload reached in the test is a key information to evaluate the individual’s physiological characteristics, to plan rehabilitation and/or training sessions. However, these tests are physically very demanding and may expose the tested individual to cardiopulmonary overload. In this research activity, innovative approaches exploiting data mining techniques are investigated to allow an early prediction of the highest workload that will be reached in the cardiopulmonary test.
