The rate of increase in oxygen uptake (VO2) at the onset of a step change in work rate can be studied to provide information about the physiological mechanisms that control this process. Several systems must interact to produce the total response. These can be grouped into oxygen transport and oxygen utilization mechanisms. In this paper, the hypothesis that one or the other of these mechanisms limits the adaptation of VO2 to a change in work rate will be examined. In addition to the… CONTINUE READING
