Figure 3. The effect of superimposing reactive hyperemia on the recovery from plantar flexion exercise on convective oxygen delivery (left panel), capillary blood flow (middle panel), and peak mitochondrial phosphorylation rate (Vmax)(right panel). Data are presented as mean ± SEM. * Reactive hyperemia significantly different from free flow condition (P < 0.05), ** (P < 0.01).
