Calorespirometry

Description

Calorespirometry is the method of measuring simultaneously metabolic heat flux (calorimetry) and oxygen flux (respirometry). The calorespirometric ratio (CR ratio; heat/oxygen flux ratio) is thus experimentally determined and can be compared with the theoretical oxycaloric equivalent, as a test of the aerobic energy balance.

Abbreviation: CR
