Robbins Jennifer L - - 2009
Although both capillary density and peak oxygen consumption (Vo(2)) improve with exercise training, it is difficult to find a relationship between these two measures. It has been suggested that peak Vo(2) may be more related to central hemodynamics than to the oxidative potential of skeletal muscle, which may account for ...

This study tested the hypothesis that the change in body mass (DeltaBM) accurately reflects the change in total body water (DeltaTBW) after prolonged exercise. Subjects (4 men, 4 women; 22-36 year; 66 +/- 10 kg) completed 2 h of interval running (70% VO(2max)) in the heat (30 degrees C), followed ...

The respiratory and cerebrovascular reactivity to changes in arterial Pco(2) (Pa(CO(2))) is an important mechanism that maintains CO(2) or pH homeostasis in the brain. It remains unclear, however, how cerebrovascular CO(2) reactivity might influence the respiratory chemoreflex. The purpose of the present study was therefore to examine the interaction between ...

Blood haemoglobin concentration is regularly measured automatically by instruments reporting the value in around 1 min. The OSM2 from Radiometer is an example. Results from this instrument have been compared with those of a reference method using the hemiglobincyanide principle. Four healthy, moderately trained, young men (non-smokers) cycled for 2 ...

PURPOSE: Neuregulins (NRG) are growth factors that bind to receptors of the erbB family, and are known to mediate a number of processes involved in diverse tissues. Neuregulin-1beta is expressed in skeletal muscle and is activated by exercise. We hypothesized that NRG-1beta might circulate in the bloodstream and increase as ...

BACKGROUND: The most accepted criterion for confirming attainment of VO(2)max is a plateau in oxygen consumption (VO(2)) at VO(2)max, but its incidence varies. AIMS: To compare VO(2)max and VO(2) plateau incidence across various sampling intervals, and to examine predictors of the change in VO(2) (DeltaVO(2)) at VO(2)max. METHODS: Sedentary, recreationally-active, ...

Boxers are predisposed to subaortic and pulmonic stenosis (SAS, PS). Screening of puppies may be useful in estimating the risk of their developing a defect that potentially compromises life expectancy or exercise tolerance. Presence of SAS or PS in adult Boxers can be predicted by auscultation and Doppler echocardiography at ...

Morbid obesity and diabetes cause diastolic dysfunction that can be detected by Doppler echocardiography. Patients with the metabolic syndrome could demonstrate early diastolic dysfunction that may influence effort tolerance. A total of 32 patients (17 men) who fulfilled >/=2 of the 5 metabolic syndrome criteria were studied. The average age ...

We have shown previously that treadmill exercise within lower body negative pressure (LBNPex) maintains upright exercise capacity (peak oxygen consumption, Vo(2peak)) in men after 5, 15, and 30 days of bed rest (BR). We hypothesized that LBNPex protects treadmill Vo(2peak) and sprint speed in women during a 30-day BR. Seven ...

The effect of exercise modalities on determinants of sarcopenia, specifically, lean tissue mass, maximal voluntary isometric contraction (MVIC), muscle quality (MQ), and cardiorespiratory fitness (VO(2)peak) over 12 weeks were studied in 42 (45-55 years, 60 days of amenorrhea, with </=1 h/week physical activity) perimenopausal females. Subjects were assigned to strength ...

The cardiovascular response to exercise in heart transplant recipients (HTR) has been compared with that of healthy individuals matched to the recipient age (RM controls). However, no study has compared HTR with donor age-matched (DM) controls. Moreover, the cardiovascular response to sustained submaximal exercise in HTR requires further evaluation. We ...

We investigated the pedal rate dependency of the effect of priming exercise on pulmonary oxygen uptake (Vo(2)) kinetics. Seven healthy men completed two, 6-min bouts of high-intensity cycle exercise (separated by 6 min of rest) using different combinations of extreme pedal rates for the priming and criterion exercise bouts (i.e., ...

We attempted to test whether the balance between muscular metabolic capacity and oxygen supply capacity in endurance-trained athletes (ET) differs from that in a control group of normal physically active subjects by using exercises with different muscle masses. We compared maximal exercise in nine ET subjects [Maximal oxygen uptake (VO(2)max) ...

Odd- and even-order distortion products (DPs), evoked by two primary tones (f(1),f(2),f(1)<f(2)), represent different aspects of cochlear nonlinearity. The cubic and quadratic difference tones (CDT 2f(1)-f(2) and QDT f(2)-f(1)) are prominent representatives of the odd and even DPs. Distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) were measured within a primary level (L(1),L(2)) ...

BACKGROUND: Hypercapnic ventilatory response (HCVR) techniques have not previously been adequately validated in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We have tested the hypothesis that end-tidal PCO(2) may be used to test the HCVR in COPD during non-steady-state rebreathing, despite the fact that large (arterial-end-tidal) PCO(2) differences (P(a-et)CO(2)) exist ...

The relationship between inborn maximal oxygen uptake (VO(2max)) and skeletal muscle gene expression is unknown. Since low VO(2max) is a strong predictor of cardiovascular mortality, genes related to low VO(2max) might also be involved in cardiovascular disease. To establish the relationship between inborn VO(2max) and gene expression, we performed microarray ...

Prepubertal boys' greater aerobic fitness (peak V O(2)) has been attributed to their larger lean body mass (LBM); this bestowing a greater heart size and consequent larger maximum cardiac output. No difference in peak arterio-venous (A-VO(2)) difference is thought to exist. However other work indicates that boys' aerobic fitness remains ...

Myc proteins are powerful proto-oncoproteins and important promoters of growth and proliferation during normal development. They are thought to exercise their effects upon binding to their partner protein Max, and their activities are largely antagonized by complexes of Max with Mnt or an Mxd family protein. Although the biological functions ...

BACKGROUND: Although the cycle ergometer is the traditional mode for exercise testing in patients with respiratory disease, this preference over the treadmill does not consider perceptual responses. Our hypotheses were as follows: (1) the regression slope between breathlessness and oxygen consumption (Vo(2)) is greater on the treadmill than on the ...

Incremental exercise testing to a symptom-limited maximum has been used to measure the ratio of the increase in ventilation (V.E) to the increase in CO(2) output (V.CO(2)) during exercise (V.E/V.CO(2) slope), a valuable index reflecting the severity of the ventilation-perfusion mismatch in heart failure. Here we studied whether this same ...
