English term or phrase:patients muscle failure.
The cardiovascular system carries blood, oxygen and energy to the muscles during aerobic exercise. But, when you are exerting yourself at a very high intensity, the cardiovascular system often cannot keep up. At that point the muscles can utilize additional stores of energy through an anaerobic process. That means it does not require a constant supply of oxygen. Eventually those additional energy stores run out and that is what we see happening when we see the patients muscle failure.
