    I finally found the information that I was looking for in a web article
    VO2max Test Protocols ~ TRISTUPE.COM
    The photos in the article show a subject doing the test; the treadmill looks nothing like anything I saw when researching to purchase mine. The key for me was the description of the test that had a chart to show that the effort increased in 3 minute intervals ; if you are OK on each level you move on until you A) finish the test or B) can't continue.

    This was the chart that gave me my "Ah Ha!" moment. The subject in the article was being tested to determine fitness levels for his triathlon training. He stopped at 16:59 into the test on level 6! If I choose to try it I can get to level 4 on my machine and that equates to 13 METS, or the original SDI/TDI blog definition of fit to dive.
