PURPOSE To analyze the limits of agreement between exercise ventilatory threshold values (VT1 and VT2) estimated from a combination of pulmonary gas exchange and ventilatory variables (cardiopulmonary exercise testing) and those derived from an alternative approach based on the ventilatory response only (V(E), ventilometry). METHODS Forty-two nontrained subjects (24 males, aged 18-48, peak VO(2) = 33.1 +/- 8.6 mL.min(-1).kg(-1)) performed a maximum incremental cardiopulmonary exercise testing…

Estimation of the exercise ventilatory compensation point by the analysis of the relationship between minute ventilation and heart rate

It is hypothesized that changes in the slope of increment in minute ventilation over heart rate during incremental exercise can be utilized, as alternative to the ventilatory equivalents method, for VCP detection.

A simplified approach for the estimation of the ventilatory compensation point.

In healthy young males, the ΔV˙E/ΔHR and ΔRR/άHR relationships during T and C incremental exercises can be reliably used to detect the VCP as an alternative to the ventilatory equivalent method.

Minute ventilation and heart rate relationship for estimation of the ventilatory compensation point at high altitude: a pilot study

At HA, VCP may be reliably estimated by the ΔV˙E/ΔHR method, and good agreement between the two methods was found for both environmental conditions.

Cardiorespiratory optimal point: a submaximal variable of the cardiopulmonary exercise testing.

COP, a submaximal variable, increases with age and is slightly higher in women, and being modestly associated with other ventilation measures, there seems to be an independent contribution to the interpretation of the cardiorespiratory response to CPET.

Has the ideal and universal prognostic index in cardiorespiratory exercise testing been identified?

Using Thorax Expansion to Detect a Ventilatory Inflection Point in the Field

Evaluated a ventilatory inflection point (VIP) derived from thorax expansion as a useful surrogate to assess an individual’s physical fitness under field conditions and found the timing of VIP is not solely dependent on the aerobic capacity.

Intercept of minute ventilation versus carbon dioxide output relationship as an index of ventilatory inefficiency in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

The V˙ E/V˙ CO2 intercept emerged as a useful index of ventilatory inefficiency in COPD patients and was consistently correlated with worsening static and dynamic LH, pulmonary gas exchange, and airflow limitation in COPd.

Validation of a new cycle ergometer.

The ICBE presents concurrent validity for use in submaximal and maximal cardiopulmonary tests and residue analysis indicated strong agreement between the 2 cycle ergometers.



Ventilatory, lactate-derived and catecholamine thresholds during incremental treadmill running: relationship and reproducibility.

In the present exercise protocol, there are systematic differences between the lactate-derived and ventilatory thresholds, in spite of a close relationship, and these must be taken into account in recommendations derived for training.

Maximal lactate steady state, respiratory compensation threshold and critical power

Critical power and the second ventilatory threshold (VT2) are presumed to indicate the power corresponding to maximal lactate steady state (MLSS) and CP calculated from a given range of exhaustion times does not correspond to MLSS.

Assessment of exercise intensity formulas by use of ventilatory threshold.

Predicted and measured maximal HR at 77 percent were not above the VT among the low- and average-fitness individuals and are appropriate for training intensity, but the Karvonen formula appears to overestimate heart rate intensity among those of low and average fitness and may be excessive for these groups.

Monitoring high-intensity endurance exercise with heart rate and thresholds.

Results show that physiological parameters near the ventilatory threshold are not interchangeable and that some cannot be used to monitor high-intensity long term exercise and cannot predict the highest work intensity that can be sustained during prolonged exercise without fatigue.

A new method for detecting anaerobic threshold by gas exchange.

From incremental exercise tests on 10 subjects, the point of excess CO2 output (AT) predicted closely the lactate and HCO-3 thresholds and could be more reliably determined by the V-slope method.

Ventilatory and gas exchange responses during heavy constant work-rate exercise.

There is an excessive metabolic response to heavy exercise over and above that predicted by extrapolation from light-moderate exercise and this excess VO(2) approximates on average to the slow phase of a three-compartment exponential model.

Stability of the blood lactate-heart rate relationship in competitive athletes.

Although power output at AerT, AnT, and maximal exercise changes significantly with conditioning, there is no systematic change in the associated values for HR and/or RPE used as practical markers of training intensity.

A conceptual framework for performance diagnosis and training prescription from submaximal gas exchange parameters--theory and application.

An applicable framework for the evaluation of endurance capacity as well as for the derivation of exercise prescription by the use of two gas exchange thresholds: aerobic (AerTGE) and anaerobic (AnTGE).

Carbonic anhydrase inhibition delays plasma lactate appearance with no effect on ventilatory threshold.

The similarity in VET in Con and Acz suggests that La (-) production is similar between conditions but La(-) appearance in plasma is reduced and/or La(+) uptake by other tissues is enhanced after the Acz treatment.

It was concluded that training at an intensity near the lactate or ventilatory threshold is an adequate training stimulus for improving the thresholds for sedentary subjects, but a higher intensity may be necessary for conditioned subjects.
