Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

    Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is considered an aerosolizing procedure, so it has been on hold at my institution.  As we try to resume some elective testing, I am interested in how CPET is being handled at other institutions?  Do you have procedures in place to allow testing to continue with minimal risk to staff? Are you continuing to defer these tests?  If so, are you delaying transplant work ups and listings or planning to potentially list patients without CPET information?

    Thank you,
