Maximal Oxygen Consumption

The Sensormedics VMAX 229lv and VMAX 29 Systems are used for stress tests measuring breath by breath Oxygen consumption and Carbon Dioxide production. The electrical activity of the heart is monitored during all stress tests on the Quinton Q710. A majority of studies utilize the Quinton Medtrak T55 treadmill for measuring VO 2max. Maximal capacities include 9.6 mph and 25% grade.
