Research Paper Title Study of the changes in respiratory function in self-contained underwater breathing apparatus divers. Background The objective was to investigate the respiratory function of professional divers by conducting spirometry and to compare the data obtained with those of non-divers. Methods This study involved 52 military divers who carried out dives at small and… Read More
Pacing & Cardiorespiratory Demands while Carrying either Fighting or Approach Loads during Short Mixed Terrain Marches
Research Paper Title Cardiorespiratory responses to heavy military load carriage over complex terrain. Background This study examined complex terrain march performance and cardiorespiratory responses when carrying different Soldier loads. Methods Nine active duty military personnel (age, 21 ± 3 yr; height, 1.72 ± 0.07 m; body mass (BM), 83.4 ± 12.9 kg) attended two test… Read More
Cardiorespiratory Responses to Load Carriage: Compact Mode vs Distributed Mode
Research Paper Title Effect of heavy load carriage on cardiorespiratory responses with varying gradients and modes of carriage. Background The present study was undertaken to determine the effect of different uphill and downhill gradients on cardiorespiratory and metabolic responses of soldiers while carrying heavy military loads in two different modes. Methods Eight physically fit male… Read More
Can We Determine the Genetic, Physiologic, & Behavioural Predictors of Cardiorespiratory Fitness in Specialised Military Men?
Research Paper Title Genetic, Physiologic, and Behavioral Predictors of Cardiorespiratory Fitness in Specialized Military Men. Background Cardiorespiratory fitness (CRF) is a crucial performance requirement of specialised military occupations. Age and physical activity are established predictors of CRF, but it is not clear how these predictors combine with each other and/or with genetic predisposition. The goal… Read More
