This is a non-invasive test that assesses the cardiopulmonary system as a whole. The CMET consists of a full
array of pulmonary function tests (PFTs), gas exchange (oxygen consumption) analysis during exercise and
electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring. The CMET is the only test that directly measures maximal Metabolic
Equivalents or METs, an exact index of the patient’s functional capacity. Compared to a traditional ECG
stress test, the CMET is a more accurate test in detecting heart disease and provides more comprehensive
clinical data that helps differentiate between heart & lung limitations, deconditioning or a combination
of these conditions.
