Respiratory Muscle Power & the Slow Component of O2 Uptake
Cross TJ, Winters C, Sheel AW, Sabapathy S.
“The slow component of O2 uptake (V˙O2sc) represents a progressive decline in work efficiency during strenuous, constant work rate cycling. Although most of this "excess" O2 uptake can be explained by factors intrinsic to the exercising muscles, it has been proposed that respiratory muscle work rate may also contribute to the V˙O2sc response. To...
