The purpose of this study was to determine if augmented hyperventilation produced via normoxic helium breathing would reduce exercise-induced hypoxemia (EIH). Seven highly trained endurance athletes with a mean maximum oxygen uptake of 65 ml.kg-1.min-1, performed two cycle ergometer tests to volitional exhaustion. During one of the tests the subjects breathed ambient air, while during the other they breathed normoxic helium (21% O2, 79% He). Mean maximum expired ventilation significantly (p… CONTINUE READING
