PATHOPHYSIOLOGY AND NATURAL HISTORY CONGENITAL HEART DISEASE Dynamics of oxygen uptake during exercise in adults with cyanotic congenital heart disease

Abstract

The dynamic increase in oxygen uptake ('902) at the start of exercise reflects the circulatory adjustments to metabolic changes induced by the exercise. Because '902 measured at the lungs is the product of pulmonary blood flow and arteriovenous oxygen difference, pathologic conditions affecting the capacity of these factors to change would be expected to… (More)
