Figure 3: Representation of exercise oximetry results expressed in DROP: Limb changes from rest minus chest changes from rest) in a patient with bilateral occlusion of hypogastric arteries (upper panel) ad isolated right femoropopliteal occlusion (lower panel). The walking period (“phase d'effort”) is the gray area. Note that in the lower figure, the recovery period was extended to 15 min due to the very slow recovery of regional flow impairment on the left calf. DROP: Decrease from rest of oxygen pressure
