In the video, Dr. Walker comments on a case report by Dr. Robert Attaran and colleagues that describes the physiological basis of dyspnea and impaired exercise capacity secondary to impaired venous return to the heart. The article may lead practitioners to consider the diagnosis of central venous disorders in cases of unexplained exertional dyspnea and exercise intolerance. We also invite you to read a text version of Dr. Walker's commentary.
