Abstract

A patient with recurrent pulmonary emboli collected heart rate data during exercise, which provided important premorbid clues to changes in cardiopulmonary exercise tolerance coincident with accrual of thrombus in the central circulation. On both occasions, chronotropic incompetence (CI) preceded the pulmonary emboli events. When patients with programmed exercise goals notice CI, they should seek professional guidance.
