Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


On the basis of their own experimental results and of those from the literature, the authors have studied the possibility of bloodless evaluation of the ratio: oxygen extraction (DAV) to total peripheral resistances (TPR). The so called 'peripheral factor' which can be thus obtained (units: m102/min/mm Hg), appears to be a sensitive index of the metabolic-functional behaviour of skeletal musculature and of the degree of left ventricular involvement during various types of muscular exercise. From resting value for 3-5, the 'peripheral factor' can increase up to 40 m102/min/mm Hg in well trained athletes, and it appears to be influenced not only by the amount of work performed but also by the 'type' of muscle group involved.
