Table 2 Forward stepwise multivariate regression analysis for prediction of heart failure

From: Peak oxygen uptake in relation to total heart volume discriminates heart failure patients from healthy volunteers and athletes

  Beta-value (r-value) p-value
VO2peak/THV ratio -0.90 < 0.0001
Excluded variables Partial correlation  
THV 0.03 0.74
LVEDV 0.05 0.53
LVEF -0.10 0.23
VO2peak (ml min-1) 0.03 0.74
VO2peakkg (ml min-1 kg-1) -0.14 0.09
  1. LVEDV = left ventricular end-diastolic volume, LVEF = left ventricular ejection fraction, THV = total heart volume, VO2peak = peak oxygen uptake
