Abstract

The present study examines whether changes in arterial PCO2 (PaCO2), due to exogenous causes, affect muscular metabolism. Few reports in the literature have considered this point of view which is of interest, the degree of arterial oxygenation being usually considered as the main factor affecting muscular metabolism.
