VO(2) kinetics and O(2) deficit are important determinants of exercise tolerance. In "normal" conditions convective and diffusive O(2) delivery to skeletal muscle fibers do not represent important determinants of VO(2) kinetics, whose limiting factors seem mainly located within muscle fibers. Whereas a limiting role by PDH has not been confirmed, the role… CONTINUE READING
