Subjects were analyzed with respect to gender and predefined age groups (age < 35 years, n = 18; age 35-55 years, n = 24; age > 55 years, n = 25).

The average absolute numeric LV GLS increase was 5.3%, equivalent to a relative 26.7% increase of LV GLS. LV GLS magnitude at peak exercise was without clinically significant differences between age groups (P = .07). No significant difference was found in peak exercise LV GLS between genders (P = .48). Linear regression analysis revealed a significant but weak correlation between peak LV GLS and age (r = -0.30, P = .02), whereas peak LV GLS was independent of maximal heart rate (r = 0.23, P = .07), peak mean arterial blood pressure (r = -0.11, P = .38), body mass index (r = 0.15, P = .22), and peak pulsed Doppler-derived cardiac index (r = -0.06, P = .67).CONCLUSIONS: LV GLS increases significantly during exercise stress in a healthy population. A dose-response relationship was found between LV GLS and exercise level independent of gender, and the influence of age appeared marginal. The technique is feasible, with low intra- and interobserver variability.",
