Purpose Exercise testing by cycle ergometer allows to observe the interaction between oxygen uptake (VO 2) and workload (W), and VO 2/W‐slope can be used as a diagnostic tool. Respectively, peak oxygen uptake (VO 2 PEAK) can be estimated by maximal workload. We aim to determine reference for VO 2/W‐slope among prepubertal children and define agreement between estimated and measured VO 2 PEAK. Methods A total of 38 prepubertal children (20 girls) performed a maximal cycle ergometer test with respiratory gas …
