Blood lactate and ventilatory thresholds in wheelchair athletes with tetraplegia and paraplegia


The purpose of this study was to analyse the influence of spinal cord injury level on blood lactate (BLa) and ventilatory thresholds. Ten athletes with tetraplegia (TETRA) and nine athletes with paraplegia (PARA) performed a graded wheelchair propulsion treadmill exercise step test to exhaustion. The aerobic and anaerobic BLa thresholds, the ventilatory… (More)
