Validity and Reliability of the VO2 Master for Oxygen Consumption and Ventilation Assessment

ALEXANDER H.K. MONTOYE, JOSEPH D. VONDRASEK, and JAMES B. HANCOCK 

Conclusion

“The VO2 Master had an acceptable validity and test-retest reliability for most intensities tested and may be an appealing option for field-based VO2 and VE analysis… Average absolute VO2 was <0.2 L/min different between analyzers at all stages.”

Validity and Reliability of the VO2 Master

Conclusion

“Typical percent error was less than 2% for all metrics, easily achieving the 3% recommendation by the Australian Sports Institute. Intra and inter reliability of the VO2 Master were excellent with ICC coefficients greater than 0.99, and minimum detectable changes less than 3.5% for VO2 and 1.5% for ventilation.”

VO2 Master versus Parvo TrueOne

Conclusion

“…comparing the VO2 Master against one of the standard metabolic carts we have at our lab, the Parvo Medics TrueOne 2400. The findings are very encouraging as to the validity of the VO2 Master as a novel lab- and field-ready VO2 analyser.”
