Lethargy and exercise intolerance
observed may be due to reduced perfusion and cardiac output.
These facts when summarized bring us to a conclusion that there is a connection between low efficient breathing, exercise intolerance
and ventilation-perfusion mismatch with high respiratory drive to compensate for the under perfused areas of the lung (54).
Reduced cardiac output on exertion was long considered the main mechanism behind exercise intolerance
in HFpEF .
No cardiopulmonary exercise test was performed, which would have confirmed exercise intolerance
. However, a submaximal exercise text (6MWT) was used.
Yet, maintaining normal activities is important to preventing physical deconditioning and loss of lower-extremity muscle strength and exercise intolerance
. (4), (20) Decreased lower-extremity muscle strength is identified as a predictor of exercise intolerance
or limitation of function (eg, walking, climbing stairs, rising from a seated position, etc.) in elderly populations and people with cardiac diseases, including HF.

in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease," American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, vol.
The constellation of symptoms associated with POTS reflects underlying dysautonomia including palpitations, exercise intolerance
, fatigue, lightheadedness, tremor, headache, nausea, near syncope, and syncope.
Heart rate and ECG were monitored continuously with a GE Marquette Mac 8 or GE Case V6.51 12-lead ECG system, along with other symptoms of exercise intolerance
. Brachial systolic and diastolic blood pressures were determined on the right arm by manual auscultation every two minutes during rest (minutes 1, 3, and 5), exercise, immediately after the last stage of exercise, and during recovery.
Taivassalo emphasized that exercise intolerance
is a common clinical presentation in neuromuscular disorders, resulting from the primary disease process or a secondary effect of either cardiovascular deconditioning or muscle disuse due to adoption of a sedentary life style.
This deficiency has traditionally been thought to cause exercise intolerance
in a subset of individuals; however, the vast majority are asymptomatic.
(fatigue or breathlessness during exercise) is a common symptom of mitochondrial defects that are genetic as well as some of those that are due to normal aging (Tarnopolsky and Raha 2005).
