After complete repair, exercise tolerance does not show much change compared to that after first-stage repair, but hypoxemia is essentially eliminated when the ventilatory response to exercise normalizes. Single Ventricle The cardiorespiratory response to exercise in patients with unrepaired forms of functional single ventricle is typical for cyanotic forms of congenital heart disease. Maximum aerobic power is reduced, the rest hypoxemia is more marked with exercise, and ventilation is excessive relative to [V with dot above]O2.

It is best heard at the base of the neck or in the infra- or supraclavicular areas. It is more prominent on the right than the left side and is dependent on head and neck position. A change in the position of the patient's head can bring out or eradicate a venous hum. Digital compression of the jugular venous system also will obliterate the murmur. A venous hum disappears in the supine position because the influence of gravity on blood flow from the head to the heart is altered; presumably, the speed of flow, and hence turbulence, is reduced.
