  • The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effects of maximal exercise on the integrity of the alveolar epithelial membrane using the clearance rate of aerosolized 99mTc-labeled diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid as an index for the permeability of the lung blood-gas barrier. Ten elite rowers (24.3 +/- 4.6 yr of age) completed two 20-min pulmonary clearance measurements immediately after and 2 h after 6 min of all-out rowing (initial and late, respectively). All subjects participated in… CONTINUE READING
