Case report of a world class ironman triathlete: EIAH at the ventilatory treshold

Abstract : To study the exercise-induced arterial hypoxaemia (EIAH) kinetics in a world class Ironman triathlete at ventilatory threshold (TH vent), the authors simulated the cycle-run succession (CR, 20 min + 20 min) and a 20-min isolated run (R). Although 'moderate EIAH' was noted during CR, the SpO 2 kinetics of the isolated R reflected 'severe EIAH' from minutes 7 to 15 with a nadir of 85 % SpO 2 that stabilised at 90 % SpO 2 from minute 15 on. The physiological processes involved in these responses are discussed. These data indicate a systematic 'moderate EIAH' in a world class Ironman champion during CR and R at TH vent and a temporary 'severe EIAH' during R, which was attenuated when running was successive to cycling. The physiological significance of this phenomenon remains unclear, however, and further experiments are needed.
