  • Data are presented as mean±sd for 12 subjects. WRpeak: peak work rate; VO2,peak: peak oxygen uptake; fC,peak: peak cardiac frequency; VE,peak: peak minute ventilation; VT,peak: peak tidal volume; fR,peak: peak respiratory frequency; Sp,O2: arterial oxygen saturation measured by pulse oximetry. #: results of the preliminary incremental exercise test to the limit of tolerance.
