What Is VO2 Max Exercise Testing?
At My Concierge MD our team of doctors are committed to our patients’ preventive healthcare and maximized exercise plans. That end, we offer VO2 max testing, rarely performed in physician’s offices. The VO2 max test is different from a stress test and help us assess overall fitness, cardiac health and lung function.
VO2 exercise testing or VO2 max test can provide direct information about a patient’s body, fitness level, endurance as well as serve as a guide to improve exercise and weight loss programs.
VO2 max, which is a key indicator that is measured during test, refers to the maximal capacity of a person’s body to transport and use oxygen during incremental exercise. This will demonstrate a patient’s physical fitness.
