Cardio-Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) Laboratory and Core Laboratory

[Hinweis: diese Seite gibt es nur in englischer Sprache]

Cardio-Pulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) is a non-invasive, integrative test of the whole-body exercise response and considered the gold-standard in integrated performance measures. BCRI provides a central facility with hands-on experience in CPET inspired by years of clinical excellence and substantial research in the field. Our specialized team of cardiologists, internists and residents has a high level of expertise in performing and reading CPET. They are trained according to international standards and are actively shaping the future of CPET within the international CPET community.

The CPET Core Lab is equipped with state-of-the-art technology

Our CPET group not only provides diagnostic services within the Clinical Research Unit (CRU) at CharitéCampus Virchow-Klinikum, Berlin (Germany). We also act as a globally active CPET Core Laboratory within cohorts, registries, observational studies and interventional multi-centre clinical trials for surrogate parameter outcome assessment.

The CPET group runs two CPET Laboratories, equipped with Innovision InnoCor + Hemondynamics Module and a Cortex MetaControl 3000 on site. We actively work with two HP Cosmos treadmills, two Ergoline Ergometers as well a semi-supine Ergometer. Both treadmill and cyclic ergometer challenges are fully supported, other CPET applications can be implemented.

The CPET Laboratories as well as the CPET Core Laboratory have an established track-record of cutting-edge research in a wide spectrum of patients with heart and lung disease. We host an easy-to-use, easily accessible web-based system to exchange CPET tests to perform centralized reading and provide feedback as well as results within 48 hours. An audit trail is implemented and allows

We assist and consult sponsors and investigators within clinical cohorts, registries, observational studies and clinical trials in regard to a variety of performance related assessments in clinical research.
