The purpose of this study was to compare arterial and arterialized blood gases during normoxic and hypoxic exercise. In the same conditions, earlobe pulse oximetry O(2) saturation (Sp(O2)) was compared to arterial oxygen saturation (Sa(O2)). Ten men performed incremental cycle ergometer tests, in normoxia and hypoxia (FI(O2) = 0.127). Blood samples were(More)
We tested the hypothesis that prolonged exposure to high altitude would impair the restoration of muscle power during repeated sprints. Seven subjects performed two 20-s Wingate tests (WT1 and WT2) separated by 5 min of recovery, at sea level (N) and after 5-6 days at 4,350 m (H). Mean power output (MPO) and O2 deficit were measured during WT. O2 uptake(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the limiting factors of maximal aerobic performance in endurance trained (TW) and sedentary (UW) women. Subjects performed four incremental tests on a cycle ergometer at sea level and in normobaric hypoxia corresponding to 1000, 2500 and 4500 m. Maximal oxygen uptake decrement (Delta VO2 max) was larger in TW at(More)
