VO2 mask

Krys Bankard, health promotion technician, Standardized Fort Carson Army Wellness Center, straps the VO2 Max mask on Capt. Sarah Reynolds, commander, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2nd Battalion (General Support), 4th Aviation Regiment, 4th Combat Aviation Brigade, 4th Infantry Division, before she starts the VO2 Max test at the Standardized Fort Carson AWC, Jan. 11, 2013, in preparation for the VO2 Max competition in February. VO2 Max is the scientific term used for cardio respiratory fitness, and is the maximum capacity to transport and use oxygen in the body. “The VO2 Max Competition is a great chance for those soldiers who think they’re pretty fit to come out and prove it,” said Bankard.
