Brief Summary:
In a randomized, sham-controlled trial the investigators will test whether supplemental oxygen given during cardiopulmonary exercise testing will improve exercise performance and physiological parameters in patients with pulmonary arterial or chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Pulmonary Arterial and Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension Chronic Cardiorespiratory Disease Procedure: Supplemental oxygen via a mask Phase 2

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Watt [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
  2. exercise time [ Time Frame: 1 day ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :

  3. ventilatory equivalent of carbon dioxide (VE/VCO2) slope [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
  4. end-tidal pressures of carbon dioxide (PET CO2) [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
  5. Changes in arterial blood parameters [ Time Frame: 1 day ]
