Systemic and vastus lateralis muscle blood flow and O2 extraction during ramp incremental cycle exercise.

During ramp incremental cycling exercise increases in pulmonary O2 uptake (Vo2p) are matched by a linear increase in systemic cardiac output (Q). However, it has been suggested that blood flow in the active muscle microvasculature does not display similar linearity in blood flow relative to metabolic demand. This study simultaneously examined both systemic… (More)
