The relation between VO2 and work rate (WR) was examined in seven male subjects who performed ramp (1 W.3s-1) two-legged cycle ergometry to exhaustion while inspiring either hypoxic (12% O2), normoxic (21% O2), or hyperoxic (40% O2) air. The anaerobic threshold was estimated from respiratory gas exchange threshold (RGET). Prior to the RGET, the delta VO2/delta WR was greater under normoxic [mean (SD); 10.19(1.04) ml O2.min-1.W-1] and hyperoxic [10.44 (0.72)] conditions compared with hypoxia [9.34 (0.89)]. Above the RGET, the delta VO2/delta WR for hypoxia [8.91 (0.63)], normoxia [10.40 (0.77)], and hyperoxia [11.08 (0.48)] were all significantly different from each other. These data indicated that for two-legged, cycle, ramp ergometry in normoxia below the RGET, both the delta VO2/delta WR and response time was constant. Above the RGET, the normoxic VO2 response was the net result of a declining delta VO2/delta WR and a longer response time to the unsteady state character of a ramp exercise protocol.
