Ventilatory Threshold Analysis

Ventilatory Threshold The Ventilatory threshold was reached at 5 minutes or stage 3 for patient 92 C. The ventilatory threshold is important because it indicates the point at which the blood lactate acid increases non-linearly. It indicates that there is an increase in the lactate acid level in the blood as well as the excess carbon dioxide (Kenny et al., 2015). The increase in carbon dioxide will stimulate chemoreceptors to increase ventilation. The ventilatory threshold is related to the anaerobic threshold which refers to the increase in carbon dioxide and indicates that the body has shifted towards anaerobic metabolism (Kenny et al., 2015).
