CPET- Comprehensive Heart and Lung Stress Test

Building a strong cardiovascular system is an essential to ensuring you understand your body, your limits and can take steps to reduce your risk of many diseases, such as heart and blood vessel conditions. Ultimately we want you to live not only longer, but better for longer. Cardio Pulmonary Exercise Testing is designed to gather information on how the heart and lungs perform during a period of exercise taken to maximum exertion in a clinically controlled environment.

Service in Detail


  1. VO2 Max (aerobic capacity/maximum rate of oxygen consumption)
  2. Lactate threshold (LT/VT1/AT1)
  3. Respiratory compensation point (VT2/AT2/Lactic acid overload threshold)
  4. Aerobic power output
  5. Heart rate response during exercise

3 Key Benefits

  1. Heart and lung stress testing is key to determine if your dynamic heart and lung response is normal.
  2. The test provides an objective measurement of cardiovascular fitness and key performance indicators of aerobic fitness.
  3. Prescription of cardiovascular exercise using actual personalised data helps to ensure exercise is effective and appropriate for your current state of fitness in order to reach those health and fitness related goals.

Who needs the test

  1. Any pre or post op patient looking to maximise or monitor effective recovery
  2. Any person embarking on an exercise regime wanting to check their heart and lungs function normally under maximum stress
  3. Any person embarking on a fitness challenge who may want to maximise training zones around lactic threshold.
  4. Any person seeking improvement in their aerobic or cardiovascular capability who would like to know more about how to train effectively and be able to monitor improvements.
