Acute physiological responses to the "PO2-Aerobic Exerciser" (AE), a partial rebreathing device designed to stimulate training at altitudes, were studied in seven healthy men [mean VO2max = 56.1 +@- 10.1 (SD) ml X kg-1 X min-1] who performed cycle ergometer exercise to exhaustion in three experimental situations: a control test (C) breathing normal atmosphere: a test with the device (AE); and a test with the AE air supplemented with oxygen (AEO2'). Arterial oxygen saturation at rest for C, AE, and AEO2' studies was 97 +/- 1, 95 +/- 2, and 97 +/- 1%, respectively (P less than 0.05 for C vs AE and AE vs AEO2'), while at exhaustion it was 95 +/- 1, 87 +/- 2, and 95 +/- 1%, respectively (P less than 0.05 for C vs AE and AE vs AEO2'). Maximum work rate decreased from a control value of 1738 +/- 184 kg X min-1 to 1371 +/- 147 kg X min-1 during AE and remained below control levels during AEO2'; 1554 +/- 110 kg X min-1 (P less than 0.05). Beyond 60% of maximum work rate during AE, inspired CO2 increased to 0.026 +/- 0.005. Mouth pressure swings of up to -19.2 +/- 10.2 and 12.7 +/- 5.7 cm H2O were recorded during AE. While the PO2 aerobic exerciser induced a hypoxic stress, the pertubation imposed was not explained fully by arterial oxygen desaturation. Other factors such as hypercapnia and a flow resistive increase in the work of breathing appear to have influenced work capacity during the use of the device.
