MetadataShow full item record
This study was designed to investigate the differences in maximum oxygen consumption (VO2) in children with and without an innocent heart murmur. Data was collected on 15 children diagnosed with an innocent heart murmur and 15 children aged and sex matched to the murmur group as selected from a local elementary school. The testing utilized the Bruce treadmill protocol to help access maximum VO2, maximum HR and endurance time.
