    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Advanced Exercise Physiology Lab – VO2 Max Test

Today in my exercise physiology lab we ran a VO2 max test on two of my classmates who volunteered. This test is a maximal exertion test where the participant goes until they can’t go any further. We also hooked up the EKG machine to get print outs during the test. The participant was also hooked up to the metabolic cart so we could get oxygen consumption values like VO2, VCO2, RER, etc. It was just like in a clinical setting where the participants signed a consent form, pre-test measures (height, resting heart rate, weight, risks, blood pressure, etc.) were taken, and the test was delivered. It was neat to be the person running the test like a clinician to realize what all goes into the process. All went well and the participants did a great job. It was a fun lab and I definitely feel like I am taking what I learn in the classroom and applying it in lab. We are fortunate at CSS to have great resources and equiptment in our lab that give us the capability to learn first hand in a more controlled environment.
