This module allows you to explore metabolic responses to exercise.
Measurable physiological variables in this module:
- Metabolic Rate - total metabolic rate (calories/min)
- Muscle Aerobic Cals - aerobic skeletal muscle metabolic rate (calories/min)
- Muscle Anaerobic Cals - anaerobic skeletal muscle metabolic rate (calories/min)
- Muscle Lactate - lactate concentration in skeletal muscle (mEq/L)
The following Variables can be graphed for this simulation. The orange New Graph button will allow you to add additional graphs.
- Time (Minutes)
- Exercise Bike Power Setting
- Metabolic Rate
- Skeletal Muscle Aerobic Metabolism
- Skeletal Muscle Anaerobic Metabolism
- Skeletal Muscle Lactate
