It increases

### What is the effect of detraining on ventilation?

VE/VO2 increases (lungs become less efficient)

### What is the respiratory exchange ratio (RER) for fats combustion?

$rac{16 CO2}{23 O2}$

### What is the equation for carb combustion?

$C6H12O6 +6 O2 + 38 ADP + 38 Pi → 6CO2 6H2O + 38 ATP + (heat)$

O2

### What is the steady state definition?

O2 provides required energy and does not change over time

It increases

### What is the effect of more lactic acid production on acidity?

Increases acidity

### What is the equation for fats combustion?

$C16H32O2 + 23O2 + 129 ADP + 129 Pi → 16 CO2 + 16 H2O + 129 ATP + (heat)$

### What is the effect of detraining on lung efficiency?

Lungs become less efficient

### What is the equation for the Krebs cycle Pyruvate processing (PDH reaction)?

$C16H32O2 + 23O2 + 129 ADP + 129 Pi → 16 CO2 + 16 H2O + 129 ATP + (heat)$

5 kcal/L O2/min

### What is the formula to calculate caloric cost (kcal/min) of an activity using VO2 (L/min) and the caloric equivalent (kcal/L O2/min)?

Caloric cost (kcal/min) = VO2 (L/min) * caloric equivalent (kcal/L O2/min)

12.6 METs

### What is the formula to calculate mechanical efficiency (%)?

Mechanical efficiency (%) = external work accomplished (watts) / energy expended (VO2) * 100

4.25 kcal/min

13.9%

22.0%

26.7%

### What is the definition of hyperpnea?

Increased depth and rate of breathing

### What is the definition of 'ventilatory drift' and its function?

Rise in ventilation after a period of exercise; helps in acid base balance

### What is the physiological dead space from?

Non-perfused alveolus

### What is the equation for minute ventilation (VE)?

Frequency * Tidal volume

### What is the triphasic response in ventilation related to?

Breathing factors

### What is the measure of gas exchange efficiency represented by the VD/VT ratio?

Dead space to tidal volume ratio

### Why is 'ventilatory drift' considered to make breathing inefficient?

It causes unnecessary air to be breathed

150 mL

### What is the primary factor responsible for the initial increase in minute ventilation?

Tidal ventilation

### What does the term 'tidal volume' refer to?

Volume of air inhaled and exhaled during normal breathing

Detect pH

### What is the effect of an increase in blood pH on the oxyhemoglobin dissociation curve?

Shifts left, enhancing oxygen binding to hemoglobin

### What is the primary function of peripheral chemoreceptors?

Detect hypoxia and hypercapnia

### What is the main factor that affects hemoglobin binding to oxygen?

PO2 (partial pressure of oxygen)

It levels off

Lactic acid

### What is the primary function of bronchodilation?

Decreases resistance in airways with exercise

### What is the main function of minute ventilation (VE)?

Factors affecting the rate and depth of breathing

### What is the main factor that affects the diffusion of oxygen into the blood?

Alveolar and arterial partial pressure difference

### What is the definition of exercise-induced arterial hypoxemia (EIAH)?

Condition when O2 carried in arterial blood is severely reduced during exercise

### What happens to alveolar ventilation during incremental exercise?

It follows minute ventilation

### Why does the body pump more blood to muscles during exercise?

To supply more oxygen to the muscles

### What happens to oxygen levels in the muscles during incremental exercise?

Oxygen levels plateau around ~50%

### What is the effect of higher intensity exercise on arterial CO2 levels?

Arterial CO2 levels drop off

760 mm Hg

### What characterizes mild exercise-induced arterial hypoxemia (EIAH)?

Arterial blood oxygen reduced to 93-95%

### What happens to the oxygen gradient at around 80% intensity of maximum exercise?

Gradient increases to get oxygen into the blood

### What happens to venous blood saturation as workload increases during incremental exercise?

It decreases and plateaus around ~80%

### What defines severe exercise-induced arterial hypoxemia (EIAH)?

Arterial blood oxygen reduced by 10 mm Hg PaO2
