There are concerns that experimental imprecision of measured oxygen cost reduces its clinical utility. These concerns are exacerbated when net energy (walking-resting) is assessed. Therefore, the variability of net oxygen cost should be carefully evaluated, including an exploration of the potential for protocol changes to improve the measure's reliability. In this study a retrospective analysis was used to compare the variability in net oxygen cost between two protocols at a single center. Two… CONTINUE READING
