Abstract

Pulmonary dysfunction contributes to exercise intolerance in patients with chronic heart failure, and ACE-inhibition improves the functional capacity of these subjects. In this study, we investigated whether and how ACE-inhibitors affect pulmonary function and ventilatory response during exercise in chronic heart failure. Twenty patients with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy and left ventricular ejection fraction
