Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Endocrinology
  • Enzyme

Bengt Saltin mostly deals with Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Heart rate and Cardiology. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Anatomy and Internal medicine. His research investigates the connection between Endocrinology and topics such as Ageing that intersect with problems in Strength training and Elbow.

He combines subjects such as Biceps, Endurance training and Biochemistry, Myosin with his study of Skeletal muscle. His Heart rate research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Physical medicine and rehabilitation, Cardiac output, Oxygen metabolism and Exertion, Physical therapy. His studies deal with areas such as Peripheral, Oxygen transport, Blood pressure, Supine position and Sitting as well as Cardiology.

His most cited work include:

  • Diet, Muscle Glycogen and Physical Performance (1343 citations)
  • Exercise as medicine – evidence for prescribing exercise as therapy in 26 different chronic diseases (1077 citations)
  • Maximal perfusion of skeletal muscle in man. (1057 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Bengt Saltin focuses on Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Cardiology and Glycogen. In his study, Isometric exercise is strongly linked to Anatomy, which falls under the umbrella field of Internal medicine. Endocrinology is closely attributed to Biochemistry in his work.

The Skeletal muscle study combines topics in areas such as Muscle hypertrophy, Endurance training, Myofibril and Myosin. He has researched Cardiology in several fields, including Blood pressure and Heart rate. His Vasodilation study incorporates themes from Vasoconstriction and Adenosine.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (71.08%)
  • Endocrinology (53.19%)
  • Skeletal muscle (35.29%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2018)?

  • Internal medicine (71.08%)
  • Endocrinology (53.19%)
  • Skeletal muscle (35.29%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Vasodilation and Cardiology. Much of his study explores Internal medicine relationship to Anatomy. He has included themes like Oxidative phosphorylation and Bed rest in his Endocrinology study.

His Skeletal muscle research includes elements of Glycogen, Biochemistry, Hypoxia and Acclimatization. His studies in Vasodilation integrate themes in fields like Artery, Adenosine, Receptor, Muscle contraction and Vasoconstriction. His Cardiology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Exercise intensity and Heart rate.

Between 2006 and 2018, his most popular works were:

  • Exercise as medicine – evidence for prescribing exercise as therapy in 26 different chronic diseases (1077 citations)
  • Aerobic exercise capacity at sea level and at altitude in Kenyan boys, junior and senior runners compared with Scandinavian runners (194 citations)
  • Morphology, enzyme activities and buffer capacity in leg muscles of Kenyan and Scandinavian runners (136 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Enzyme
  • Endocrinology

His main research concerns Internal medicine, Endocrinology, Skeletal muscle, Vasodilation and Exercise physiology. His Hemodynamics, Blood pressure, Blood flow, Hypoxia and Physical exercise investigations are all subjects of Internal medicine research. His Endocrinology study combines topics in areas such as Oxidative phosphorylation and Anatomy.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Glycogen, Bed rest, GLUT4 and Citrate synthase in addition to Skeletal muscle. His Vasodilation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Vasoconstriction, Receptor and Adenosine. His study looks at the intersection of Exercise physiology and topics like VO2 max with Leg muscle.
