HR 0.220 1.0 0.63
SpO2 5.560 1.0 0.01*
Lactate 0.530 1.0 0.46

  1. Note: The association between the physiological variables, the ACTN3 and Lake Louise scores was verified through a GEE analysis including all values of each volunteer in the five times (before, 1 h, 2 h, 3 h and 4 h), totaling 114 values for each variable. The following variables were included in the statistical model: Heart Rate (HR), Peripheral Oxygen Saturation (SpO2), ACTN3, lactate, glucose 3 Hours and glucose 4 Hours
