Abstract

Respiratory gas exchange is less common used in Europe to determine any sort of “threshold”. Investigations on relationship between acid base status, blood lactate and ventilation are of importance to elucidate physiological events during exercise. It is generally accepted that a nonlinear increase in minute ventilation (VE) is consequence of the release of lactic acid in the blood (5). However, there exists also considerable doubt this theory (e.g. 3, 4, 1). The aim of this study was to present more information on the regulation of ventilation and interrelationship between lactate and ventilation thresholds during incremental work load tests.
