Table 3 Heart Rate Response to Simulated Rescue Tasks

From: Physical capacity of rescue personnel in the mining industry

  Average Peak
  (bpm) (% APMHR) (bpm) (% APMHR)
Incremental Carry 165 (10.3)* 88 (5.1)* 180 (10.5)* 97 (5.1)*
Coal Shovel 174 (10.0) 93 (4.6) 184 (9.4) 99 (4.0)
Hose Drag 174 (9.2) 93 (4.5) 183 (9.0) 98 (4.3)
  1. NB. APMHR = age predicted maximal heart rate
  2. * Significantly different from Coal Shovel and Hose Drag (p < 0.05)
