PURPOSE There are conflicting reports on the kinetics of oxygen uptake at the onset of exercise in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF). The objective of the present study was, therefore, to compare oxygen uptake (VO(2) kinetics in patients with CF with those of healthy controls (CON). METHODS Eighteen CF patients (FEV1 37-98% predicted) and 15 CON aged 10-33 yr completed two to four transitions from low-intensity cycling (stage 1, 20 W) to cycling at 1.3-1.4 W.kg(-1) body weight (stage 2… CONTINUE READING
