Abstract

In adults, the exercise intensity at which a non-linear increase in pulmonary ventilation \({\dot V_E}\) and derived variables occurs with increasing oxygen uptake is considered to be a ventilatory (anaerobic) threshold, which is an indirect indicator for the onset of metabolic acidosis (Wasserman et al., 1973).
