The role of ventilation in the response in aerobic capacity and arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) to acute hypoxic exercise was studied in 13 healthy active men divided into two groups based on their normoxic maximal exercise VE/VO2 (LOW < or =27.7; HIGH > or = 30.2) and PAO2 estimates (LOW < or = 107 mm Hg; HIGH > or = 110 mm Hg). Groups performed two incremental progressive maximal cycle exercise (VO2max) tests: normoxia (FIO2 = 20.9%) and acute hypoxia (FIO2 = 13.3%). To evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
