Previously, a reduction in fractional inspired O2 (FIO2) during dynamic exercise of the human quadriceps muscles of one leg resulted in increased muscle blood flow (Q) and a fall in femoral venous O2 tension (PO2) but no change in peak O2 uptake (VO2). These data can be interpreted as reflecting an increase in muscle O2 diffusive capacity (DO2) in hypoxia(More)
During conventional cycle ergometry, as work rate (WR) is increased toward maximum, O2 extraction increases hyperbolically, typically achieving values of 80-90% at peak O2 uptake (VO2). In contrast, studies using isolated knee-extensor exercise report much higher mass-specific blood flows (Q) and lower maximal O2 extractions (approximately 70%), which have(More)
It has been suggested that during a skeletal muscle contraction the metabolic energy cost at the onset may be greater than the energy cost related to holding steady-state force. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of contraction duration on the metabolic energy cost and fatigue process in fully perfused contracting muscle in situ.(More)
The pathogenesis of high-altitude pulmonary oedema (HAPE) is disputed. Recent reports show a strong correlation between the occurrence of HAPE and pulmonary artery pressure, and it is known that the oedema is of the high-permeability type. We have, therefore, proposed that HAPE is caused by ultrastructural damage to pulmonary capillaries as a result of(More)
Individuals with a prior history of (susceptible to high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE-S) have high resting pulmonary arterial pressures, but little data are available on their vascular response to exercise. We studied the pulmonary vascular response to exercise in seven HAPE-S and nine control subjects at sea level and at 3,810 m altitude. At each(More)
Ventilation-perfusion (VA/Q) mismatch has been shown to increase during exercise, especially in hypoxia. A possible explanation is subclinical interstitial edema due to high pulmonary capillary pressures. We hypothesized that this may be pathogenetically similar to high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) so that HAPE-susceptible people with higher vascular(More)
Support vector machine is a statistical learning classifier, based on the principle of structural risk minimization, which performs well when applied to data outside the training set. This paper presents a new approach based on support vector machines to predict whether an athlete is aerobically fit or not. The input data set contains physical properties of(More)
Constant-load exercise that engenders a sustained lactic acidosis (i.e., above the lactate threshold) is accompanied by a slow component of O2 uptake (VO2) kinetics that increases VO2 above rather than toward the predicted value. This response arises predominantly from within the exercising limbs and is temporally correlated with that of blood lactate.(More)
Wrestling requires strength of the upper and lower body musculature which is critical for the athletic performance. Evaluation of the adolescent's skeletal muscle is important to understand body movement, especially including those involved in sports. Strength, power and endurance capacity are defined as parameters of skeletal muscle biomechanical(More)
