The relationship between tissue oxygenation measured by near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and forearm muscle blood flow (FBF) measured by Doppler ultrasound was tested during isometric contractions at 10 and 30% maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) under conditions of normoxia and hypoxia (14% inspired O2). Six subjects maintained contractions at 10% MVC for… CONTINUE READING
