A cardiopulmonary exercise test (CPET) is a diagnostic test technique, which allows circulatory, respiratory and muscle metabolism to be evaluated as a whole during exercise. In addition to monitoring cardiovascular processes of adaptation, changes in the respiratory function as well as inhaled oxygen and exhaled carbon dioxide are continuously recorded by means of a facemask and gas analyser.

CPET is included in versions C and D of adults’ health examination packages and version B of the health examination packages for young athletes.
