Samenvatting

The Bruce Protocol was designed by Robert Bruce Robert in 1963 and since then it is used by physicians and physiotherapist all over the world to test cardiovascular function in both healthy and impaired patients. In its original form the test evaluates the patient VO2 max directly by using special equipment, but due to the high costs of the machines and organizational difficulties, many facilities could not perform the test, therefore the Modified Bruce protocol has been designed in order to measure VO2 max by indirect calculations. Therefore the test became applicable to many different clinical setting and patient’s groups. In the course of time more sophisticated tests were made available, but they were also more expensive and their reliability had to be researched. Presently is estimated that some 70% of the millions of tests done annually in the U.S. to evaluate heart function use the Bruce protocol.
