  • Twenty‐one normal young male subjects underwent resting and exercise (bicycle) radionuclide angiography in the full supine and 70$$ upright tilt positions in order to examine the effects of position on left ventricular size and performance, hemodynamics, and exercise duration. All subjects also underwent full (90$$) upright bicycle ergometry with respiratory gas analysis to establish the level of maximal exercise capacity for each. Body position significantly (p<0.05) affected resting and… CONTINUE READING
