  1. 1. Validity and reliability of a submaximal cycle ergometer test for estimation of maximal oxygen uptake

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan, GIH

    Author : Frida Maria Eleonora Björkman; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is the highest obtained rate of oxygen consumption during a physically intense dynamic whole-body activity. VO2max is an important factor for many types of physical performance, as well as a strong independent predictor of health and longevity. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cardiac function and long-term volume load Physiological investigations in endurance athletes and in patients operated on for aortic regurgitation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Kristofer Hedman; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Background and aims. The heart is a remarkably adaptable organ, continuously changing its output to match metabolic demands and haemodynamic load. But also in long-term settings, such as in chronic or repeated volume load, there are changes in cardiac dimensions and mass termed cardiac hypertrophy. READ MORE

  3. 3. Assessment of Aerobic Capacity A Novel Rating Scale and Further Development of an Exercise Test including Analysis of Gas Exchange

    University dissertation from KFS AB

    Author : Anita Wisén; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; kinesitherapy; revalidation; rehabilitation; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ; Physical medicine; Time constant of V O2; Cycle ergometer; Perceived Capacity; Perceived exertion; Heart rate; Oxygen uptake; Reference values; Oxygen kinetics; Repeatability; Thresholds;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Aerob kapacitet, i dagligt tal konditionen, är den maximala förmågan att utföra ett fysiskt arbete karaktäriserat av den maximala syreförbrukningen (V'O2max). Detta maximala arbete kan endast utföras en begränsad tid, till stor del beroende på en tilltagande anaerob metabolism, vilken bl.a. READ MORE

  4. 4. The importance of body-mass exponent optimization for evaluation of performance capability in cross-country skiing

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Tomas Carlsson; Umeå universitet.; Högskolan Dalarna.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allometric scaling; power-function modelling; maximal oxygen uptake; body mass; elite skiers; distance skiing; lactate threshold; double poling; sprint skiing; competition; power output; time trial; Health and Welfare; Hälsa och välfärd;

    Abstract : Introduction Performance in cross-country skiing is influenced by the skier’s ability to continuously produce propelling forces and force magnitude in relation to the net external forces. A surrogate indicator of the “power supply” in cross-country skiing would be a physiological variable that reflects an important performance-related capability, whereas the body mass itself is an indicator of the “power demand” experienced by the skier.

  5. 5. Evaluation of physical work capacity and leg muscle fatigue during exhaustive stair ascending evacuation

    University dissertation from Printed in Sweden by Media-Tryck, Lund University

    Author : Amitava Halder; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2017-04-27]
    Keywords : Stair climbing; Energy expenditure; Oxygen consumption; Electromyography; Muscle fatigue;

    Abstract : AbstractPhysical exhaustion can constrain human ascending work capacity and performance during emergency evacuation on stairs. The overall aim of this research was to explore and compare stair ascending capacities and physiological limitations during two different strategies: self-preferred pace in three different public stairways in the field, and controlled pace in a laboratory on a stair machine.
