This study was designed to compare differences in pulmonary gas exchange at rest and at peak exercise in two groups of women: (1) physically active, non-obese women and (2) women with morbid obesity. Fourteen morbidly obese women (body mass index or BMI=49+/-7 kg/m2; peak oxygen consumption or VO2 peak=14+/-2 ml/(kg min)) and 14 physically active non-obese women (BMI=22+/-2 kg/m2; VO2 peak=50+/-6 ml/(kg min)) performed an incremental, ramped exercise test to exhaustion on a cycle ergometer… CONTINUE READING
