  1. Data are expressed as mean ± standard deviation, or as frequency distributions (n) and simple percentages (%). BMI, body mass index; COPD = chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; LVEDP = left ventricular end-diastolic pressure; LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; PAH = pulmonary arterial hypertension; PVD = peripheral vascular disease.
