|Aerobic metabolism uses oxygen and is very efficient. It produces CO2 and 38 units of ATP per glucose.
|Anaerobic Metabolism utilizes one molecule glucose to produce 2 molecules of ATP. It is the backup power supply
|Pulse ThrottleThe apparent reflex where the body limits the pulse as a result of previous accumulated stress. The reflex seems to be a self-protection mechanism to avoid damage.
|The pulse oxymetery saturation level measured by a pulse oximeter.
|The minimum blood saturation level the person is able to achieve while breathing oxygen poor air under load for 1 minute.
|The difference between the normal saturation, 99%, and the Desaturation Floor.
|The rate of return to 99% saturation after 1 minute at the desaturation floor.
|The amount of time the person stays at 99% saturation before blood desaturates under load, while on oxygen poor air.
|The amount of time required to decrease saturation from 99% to the Saturation Floor.
|The amount of time the person can continue to exert while at the desaturation floor without significant discomfort.
|The body’s tendency to deplete oxygen from the blood during exertion.
|The saturation level a person has at rest before exercising or breathing oxygen.
|The maximum pulse rate a person is able to achieve during a session.
|The exercise load, in watts, during the session.
|The tendency for reduced oxygen availability when the body releases cellular waste pursuant to an oxygen pulse.
|When the lactic acid, soreness, in muscles clears because circulation is restored and lactic acid is released.
|When the person feels very good because of high effective oxygen levels.
|When circulation is restored to a chronic degenerate region of the body, trapped noxious gasses enter the blood and exit from the lungs causing death breath see also: Putrescene and cadaverine. This a detoxification reaction where therapy has restored blood flow to regions of inhibited circulation, where decomposition has started.
|The resting pulse rate before a session
