The objective of the book is to discuss the principal determinants of oxygen uptake dynamics which is essential to developing exercise performance and improving quality of life for patients, especially those with cardio-respiratory diseases. A broad review of the current knowledge about this relatively less studied field is provided by this book. Incidentally, it updates the reader about how a person can use his/her aerobic energy system more effectively in order to fatigue gradually and be able to endure more physical activity. It also discusses the effects of exercise training in speeding up oxygen uptake kinetics, and the effects of ageing and a selection of conditions in slowing oxygen dynamics and declining exercise capacity.
The book provides a very useful resource for students, researchers and practitioners in the field of exercise and respiratory physiology, as well as for clinicians dealing with patients suffering from cardio-pulmonary diseases
This textbook is presented in the way of permitting the reader to use the book for immediate practical requirements. It is composed of four parts with sub-sections in three of them. The topics of the parts are: i) Introduction to VO2 kinetics and historical development of the discipline, ii) Measurement and analysis of VO2 kinetics iii) Control of and limitations to VO2 kinetics iv) Applied VO2 kinetics for different populations
This book is almost a compulsory reading for anyone interested in understanding pulmonary oxygen uptake kinetics and for those wishing to run comprehensive research in this and relevant areas. The fact that the contributors are leading international researchers in this field makes this book more welcome
