View Full Version : spiroergometry and 'inner power'

12-12-2006, 03:03 AM
Dear all!

being absolutely new on the subject of ergospirometric measurements, i
was wondering whether it is possible to calculate the inner power
production of a subject and thus being able to reliably calculate the
human efficiency (mechanical power (e.g. cycle-ergometer) vs inner power

Literature I´ve cross-read so far speaks of an average 5 kcal/l O2, (5,1
for carbohydrates, and 4,6 for fat).

Maybe you could suggest some literature where my questions will be answered.

Thanks for your help

regards from Vienna
