The interrelation of central (cardiac output, Q, stroke volume, SV, heart rate, HR) and peripheral hemodynamic parameters (blood pressure, BP, total peripheral vascular resistance, TPVR) have to be thoroughly understood in judging left ventricular function from exercise testing in cardiac patients.
