An index of aerobic capacity—maximal oxygen consumption—declines about 8 to 10% per decade in sedentary healthy populations (40–44). This decline is secondary to a fall in maximal cardiac output and a decrease in arteriovenous oxygen difference, the central and peripheral components of measured oxygen consumption, respectively (45). The hemodynamic differences in the exercise response between healthy young and older subjects are explained primarily by the decrease in β- 8 Schulman adrenergic responsiveness with increasing age.
