VO2 = HR x SV x (A - VO2 difference)
1 MET (Metabolic Equivalent) = 3.5 ml/kg/min (rest) or approx. 250 ml/min.
Aerobic Capacity is VO2 max.; ca. 12 METS
Anaerobic Threshold - peak rate of O2 uptake sustainable without increasing blood lactate and producing muscle fatigue; evident by increased CO2 release.
VO2 = oxygen uptake (ml/kg/min.)
Q = cardiac output (ml/min.)
HR = heart rate (beats/min.)
SV = stroke volume (ml)
A-VO2 diff. = arteriovenous oxygen diff. (ml/dl)
