‘‘Use of Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing to Evaluate Long COVID-19 Symptoms in Adults. A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis’’

Is exercise capacity reduced more than 3 months after SARS-CoV-2 infection among those with long COVID-19 (LC) symptoms compared with recovered individuals without symptoms, and what patterns of limitations on cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) are common?

Oxygen Uptake Measurements and Rate of Perceived Exertion During a Marathon

Although the marathon race has been democratized, it remains complex due to the famous “hitting the wall” phenomenon after the 25th km. To characterize this “wall” from a physiological and Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) perspective in recreational marathon runners, we report first continuous breath-by-breath gas exchange measurements during an actual marathon race.

Routine use of indirect calorimetry in critically ill patients: pros and cons

In this new review, the authors identify the pros and cons of Indirect Calorimetry (IC) to estimate Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) and define individual nutritional energy targets among critically ill patients.
