The exercise response of 20 Tibetans (T) born and living in Kathmandu, Nepal (1300 m) was compared to that of 21 age- and sex-matched local lowlanders. The subjects carried out an incremental exercise protocol on a bicycle ergometer (30 watt steps every 4 min) until exhaustion. The kinetics of readjustment of VO2 measured as half time (t-on) upon a 90 watt constant load exercise was also determined. Breath-by-breath gas exchange, heart rate (HR) and blood lactate concentration ([La]) were… CONTINUE READING
