Impairment of 3000-m run time at altitude is influenced by arterial oxyhemoglobin saturation.

Abstract

UNLABELLED The decline in maximal oxygen uptake (ΔVO(2)max) with acute exposure to moderate altitude is dependent on the ability to maintain arterial oxyhemoglobin saturation (SaO2). PURPOSE This study examined if factors related to ΔVO(2)max at altitude are also related to the decline in race performance of elite athletes at altitude. METHODS Twenty… (More)
