Conference paper


It is apparently ethical and necessary to apply spiroergometry and to complete its diagnostic capability by other modern methods (e.g. ultrasonography, impedance cardiography, direct blood pressure and flow measurements in the heart cavities or in the vessels, nuclear imaginative techniques, isotope-labelled distribution studies etc.) in selected cardiac or pulmonary diseases. On the other hand, the employment of simple, time- and cost-saving tests are indicated in population studies or for screening purposes.
