Metrics details. Both Peak Oxygen Uptake peak VO2from cardiopulmonary exercise testing CPET and the distance walked during a Six-Minute Walk Test 6 MWD are used for following the natural history of various diseases, timing of procedures such as transplantation and for assessing the response to therapeutic interventions. However, their relationship has not been clearly defined. We determined the ability of 6 MWD to predict peak VO2 using data points from 1, patients with diverse cardiopulmonary disorders.
The patient data came from a study we performed and 10 separate studies where we were able to electronically convert published scattergrams to bivariate points. Using Linear Mixed Model analysis LMMwe determined what effect factors such as disease entity and different inter-site testing protocols contributed to the magnitude of the standard error of estimate SEE.
The LMM analysis found that only 0. The major source of error is the inherent variability related to the two tests. Therefore, we were able to create a generalized equation that can be used to predict peak VO2 among patients with different diseases, who have undergone various exercise protocols, with minimal loss of accuracy.
For the data as a whole it is 3. Unfortunately, like other prediction equations, it is of limited usefulness for individual patients. First Movement: Moderato - Allegro - Deep Purple, The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Malcolm Arnold, the generalized equation can be used to accurately estimate Corruption - Various - VR / Sampler (Compilation (DPRO) 1999) peak VO2 from mean 6 MWD, among groups of patients with diverse diseases without the need for cardiopulmonary exercise testing.
The equation is:. The Six-Minute Walk Test 6 MWT is an inexpensive, relatively quick, safe and a well-tolerated method of assessing the Various - Brute Force Steel Bands Of Antigua, B.W.I. exercise capacity of patients with moderate-to-severe heart or lung disease.
Its use has found popularity in following the natural history of various diseases, for timing of procedures such as heart or lung transplantation and for measuring the response to medical interventions [ 1 ]. However, the test is relatively expensive and time consuming.
Although CPET may be used periodically during a study, generally the 6 MWT is used for the routine following of study patients' exercise capacity. There has been a substantial body of literature published looking at the relationship between 6 MWT and peak VO2 in individuals [ 2 — 11 ]. However, the source of this large error has not been explored. This could have significant value when comparing study groups in terms of average peak VO2 when only 6 MWD data is available.
For example, if a therapeutic intervention showed promise in one study but not another, a potential reason could be that the groups had significantly different mean peak VO2's and the therapy is only efficacious for those with adequate aerobic reserve. A potential problem in deriving an equation to estimate mean peak VO2 from mean 6 MWD is that the two tests are not performed uniformly at different institutions throughout the world. Type of disease and test administration factors could significantly influence the relationship.
These include the manner in which the 6 MWT is performed, whether there is a learning 6 MWT performed first, the CPET protocol used, the test mode used, treadmill or cycle ergometer, and whether the individual uses supplemental oxygen for the 6 MWT. All of these factors are potential sources of confounding bias that could conceivably make a generalized equation of limited practical use.
However, the magnitude of these variables on the SEE has not been explored. This study was designed to examine the relationship between 6 MWD and peak VO2 in diverse groups of patients with various cardiac, circulatory and pulmonary disorders, who were tested under different clinical protocols, to determine if a useful generalized equation to estimate peak VO2 from 6 MWD could be derived.
The data for this study came from two sources. Many of these patients had both studies as part of a heart or lung transplant program. The authors were not involved in the patient selection or decision to have the tests. If the same patient had more than one test, only the first test was used for analysis. A total of 48 patients met these criteria.
The patients had a diverse group of cardiopulmonary disorders including pulmonary hypertension, interstitial lung disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. There were 25 women with a mean age of Some of our study patients required supplemental oxygen while performing the test, however, all completed the 6 MWT.
The patients were encouraged to exercise to voluntary exhaustion. The CPET protocol was designed by an experienced technician so that each patient would reach maximum power output by approximately ten minutes.
The women had a mean 6 MWD of The men had a mean 6 MWD of Their pooled results and linear regression statistics are shown in Table 1. We also performed a literature search up through mid utilizing Pub Med. We looked for studies where raw data displaying the relationship between 6 MWD and peak VO2 was presented. Eight of the studies published the data only as bivariate scattergrams.
In these cases, the graphs from these articles were electronically copied to a program where the coordinates of each point could be ascertained. These values were then multiplied by appropriate scaling factors to obtain each individual's peak VO2 and 6 MWD values. Points of some subjects were superimposed on each other making it impossible to recover all the data.
Trrephining Laaugh - IX VI IV - ADHD LoFi studies were performed at sites around the world, including the US, Europe and Japan. They encompassed patients with many different heart and lung disorders, exercised under various protocols. These studies, each of uniform Fallen - Container - NEO diseases and exercise protocols, were used for comparison to the results from our study group. We found that the correlation coefficient and SEE of our data were similar Trrephining Laaugh - IX VI IV - ADHD LoFi those from these other studies even though our group consisted of patients with a mixture of cardiopulmonary disorders exercised according to our protocol.
This suggested that different patient diseases as well as Drifting On The Moors - Greg Joy - Tapestries CPET and 6 MWT techniques which we will call collectively the "inter-site effect" might not be major factors in the size of the SEE.
In this regard, the inter-site effect encompassed the various differences in disease extent and type, as well as exercise protocols and other variability among the different data sets obtained from the different studies. For this analysis, each of the studies was treated as a random variable. Both random intercept and random coefficient models were examined [ 1213 ]. A log ratio test [ 14 ] was used to determine which model fit the data better.
The method of obtaining estimates of the unknown parameters of the LMM was by optimizing a likelihood function. STATA 9. Of the 10 studies found in the literature, the data from eight were obtained from scans of the published scattergrams. To our knowledge, this technique has not been used before. In order to validate it, we compared statistics derived from our "measured" data from the graphs to values published in the articles. The largest difference between the mean 6 MWD reported and calculated from measured data was only 18 meters.
This was for the sample with the most under represented data points [ 8 ]. The largest mean difference for the remaining samples was just 4 meters.
The largest difference in the standard deviations between reported and graphed data was only 3 meters. For peak VO2 the largest difference was 0. The largest difference in the standard deviations was 0. The largest difference in the correlations reported and those that we obtained from the scanned data was only 0.
These findings indicate that the data obtained from scans of the published scattergrams were accurate as they provided an excellent fit of the published results.
Table 1 provides sample characteristics for each of the 11 studies and all studies combined. For the Baylor group, the mean peak VO2 was The sample sizes of the studies from the literature ranged from 26 to patients. The mean peak VO2 of the groups ranged from 9. Table 1 also provides linear regression statistics. While all correlations were statistically significant, they ranged from a low of 0.
Standard errors of estimate ranged from a low of 2. The correlation for all 1, patients combined was 0. The slopes ranged from 0. The linear regression equation derived from the combined data of this diverse group of 1, patients who had their 6 MWT and CPET performed under various different protocols had a slope of 0.
Linear regression lines defining the relation between the distance walked in 6 minutes and peak VO2 for the Trrephining Laaugh - IX VI IV - ADHD LoFi studies. Table 3 gives the LMM analysis.
The equations of the two models were nearly identical, with a difference of just 0. The fixed-effect LMM SEE, which represents population-averaged measurement error estimates [ 13 ], and the linear regression SEE for the entire group were identical at 3. The correlation for the slopes and intercepts of the 11 studies was The SEE of the random effects model was 3.
This SEE is lower than for the fixed effects model because the site-specific variation in slopes and intercepts is statistically controlled, yielding an estimate of the 6 MWT prediction accuracy free of any inter-site effect. This SEE was only 0. Scattergram and linear regression line for the distance walked Trrephining Laaugh - IX VI IV - ADHD LoFi 6 minutes and peak VO2 for all patients from the 11 studies.
The random model residuals controlled for variation among test sites. As Figure 3 documents, the difference in residuals between LMM II fixed and random models was small and not systematic. Bivariate plot of the residuals of the LMM fixed and random models contrasted by distance walked in Trrephining Laaugh - IX VI IV - ADHD LoFi minutes. This analysis shows that the range for the mean differences, between measured and estimated peak VO2, is The standard deviation of the mean error estimates is 1.
The results of our study, all other individual studies and all data combined showed that 6 MWD and peak VO2 were significantly correlated.
Although, the site-specific prediction equations, which are presented in Table 1differed somewhat, they all had large SEE's, particularly as a percent of mean peak VO2. LMM analysis showed that inter-site variability such as disease type and different testing protocols did not substantially increase the SEE. The fixed effects SEE of 3. The random effects SEE of 3. The degree of error that is due to differences in test site variation was just 0.
The analysis of the residuals in Figure 3 documents this small difference in measurement Trrephining Laaugh - IX VI IV - ADHD LoFi .
