STUDY DESIGN We retrospectively analyzed records from 202 adolescents who underwent both head up-tilt and maximal(More)
Females demonstrate less robust Frank-Starling mechanism with respect to cardiac preload than males at rest. We asked whether this phenomenon would also affect cardiac performance during exercise. We hypothesized that stroke volume (SV) response to exercise would be more limited in deconditioned females such that cardiac output would be mainly rate(More)
