OBJECTIVES To compare the development of exercise-induced arterial hypoxemia in horses before and after training, and to determine whether increases in maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max) following training results in a greater degree of exercise-induced arterial hypoxemia. ANIMALS 13 three- to five-year-old. Standardbred geldings without clinical signs of respiratory or cardiovascular disorders. PROCEDURE Horses were rested for 4 months prior to commencing a 16-week training program. Arterial… CONTINUE READING
