Introduction Graded exercise testing (GXT) evaluates cardiac function under conditions that exceed resting requirements in defined, progressive increments to increase myocardial workload. Whether for maximal or submaximal, graded exercise testing is a safe procedure when subject screening and testing guidelines are adhered to. The GXT also objectives the functional capacity of patients with known disease and evaluates progress following different interventions (i.e. surgery or therapeutic). This lab used graded exercise testing and the measurement of oxygen uptake for many purposes. They were used to diagnose coronary artery disease, measure energy in various activities, determine the relative contribution of fat and carbohydrates as energy sources, and measured work efficiency. They were also used to assess maximal aerobic power, determine progress made in exercise training, and to write exercise prescriptions for athletes and non-athletes. Objectives After completing this lab, students will be able to: 1. Predict VO 2 max using regression equations, heart rate/VO 2 and workload plots, and the University of Houston Non-Exercising (NEx) questionnaire. 2. Accurately administer tests of cardiorespiratory fitness using the leg cycle ergometer, treadmill, step-test, and the 1.5 mile run for time. 3. Accurately determine resting and exercise heart rates and blood pressures. 4. Calibrate and operate the Metabolic Cart. 5. Be able to describe and calculate ATPS, BTPS, and STPD values given appropriate data. 6. Accurately calculate all exercise physiology variables listed in “Exercise Physiology Concepts” insert located in the GXT lab section. 7. Accurately calculate and describe the physiological mechanisms of all variables listed on the GXT Summary Data Form. 3
