Quick Reference

Any test of the ability of the heart and lungs to supply oxygen to large muscle groups, thereby allowing the muscles to sustain activity for long periods. Some tests, such as the cardiopulmonary index, are quite simple, while others are very complicated and may use formulae with up to 100 physiological indicators (see Cureton's tables). All the tests involve comparing physiological measurements during rest with those directly after exercise, and after a specified recovery period.
