Exercise Physiology Illustrated: Moving Oxygen From Air To Muscle

Exercise Physiology Illustrated: Moving Oxygen From Air To Muscle

Oxygen is one of the keys of life, and when we exercise, it is required at higher rates. Exercise Physiology Illustrated: Moving Oxygen from Air to Muscle focuses on this theme as it follows the path of oxygen from respiration in the lungs, to transport by the cardiovascular system throughout the body, to utilization by exercising muscle to produce movement. Exercise physiology is the integration of physiological systems to deliver and utilize oxygen to bring about movement, and it is this perspective on which this course is based.


Exercise Physiology Illustrated therefore takes an integrative approach in describing the pathways of oxygen throughout the body. The discussions and figures describe and explain in a coherent manner how physiological systems work together to produce movement. Various features, such as Clinical Applications, Research Highlights, and Sport Applications, are interspersed throughout the book to clarify and illuminate the discussions.


This course was designed with student learning in mind. Because of the more challenging exercise physiology concepts that students encounter, we have utilized various teaching approaches to address these sticking points.
