Exercise oscillatory ventilation (EOV) is characterized by periodic oscillations of minute ventilation during cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET). Despite its prognostic value in chronic heart failure (HF), its diagnosis is complex due to technical limitations. An easier and more accurate way of EOV identification can contribute to a better approach and clinical diagnosis. This study aims to describe a software development to standardize the EOV diagnosis from CPET's raw data in heart failure patients and test its reliability (intra- and inter-rater).
