Respiratory Muscle Work Compromises Leg Blood Flow During Maximal Exercise

“This study hypothesized that during exercise at maximal O2 consumption (VO2max), high demand for respiratory muscle blood flow would elicit locomotor muscle vasoconstriction and compromise limb blood flow.”


“Work of breathing normally incurred during maximal exercise causes vasoconstriction in locomotor muscles and compromises locomotor muscle perfusion and VO2.”
