Associate Director, Centre for Heart Lung Innovation, St. Paul’s Hospital


Lab Information

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Physiology Laboratory – Burrard Building Rm. 452

St. Paul’s Hospital


Dr. Guenette’s teaching interests include cardio-respiratory physiology, exercise physiology, pathophysiology and exercise prescription for chronic disease management. 


The focus of the Cardiopulmonary Exercise Physiology Laboratory is to better understand the physiological factors that limit exercise tolerance across the spectrum of health and chronic lung disease.  The lab uses a number of novel techniques to simultaneously assess the respiratory, cardiovascular, muscular and neuro-physiological responses to dynamic exercise.  This integrative approach allows us to better understand how these various physiological systems interact to cause exercise intolerance in humans.  We then design and test novel rehabilitation interventions to reduce symptoms and improve exercise performance and quality of life for patients suffering from chronic lung diseases.
