Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The pulmonary arterial pressure does not increase dramatically during the 30 minutes exercise test, but decreases significantly after the first 5 minutes of exercise.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The cardiac output is stable after the first 5 minutes of exercise, despite the high intensity work loads every 5 minutes.
