Metabolic and Circulatory Limitations to at the Whole Animal Level


The O2 path from environment to mitochondria can be viewed as a cascade of resistances in series, each being overcome by a specific pressure gradient (O2 conductance equation). To assess the relative importance of the different factors that can set a limit to Vo max, three sets of resistances will be identified, RQ, Re and Rm, inversely proportional to: O2… (More)
