    Abstract??External respiration in healthy males has, in addition to eupnea, six functionally active variants with one or several indices deviating from the normal values. Hyperpnea and hypopnea are determined by deviations in general oxygen consumption accompanied by adequate changes in...

    We hypothesised that the ratio between the increase in oxygen uptake and the increase in work rate (ΔVO2/ΔWR) during ramp cycle exercise would be significantly related to the percentage type II muscle fibres at work rates above the gas exchange threshold (GET) where type II fibres are...
