How come the breathing and pulse rate increases as the length of exercise increases?

How come the breathing and pulse rate increases as the length of exercise increases?

Cardiac drift: With prolonged exercise, breathing rate increases to meet the oxygen demands of working muscle. Heart rate increases, but it does not plateau. A steady increase in heart rate is seen with prolonged exercise due to 'cardiac drift'. The heart rate increases in order to maintain your cardiac output in the face of decreased 'preload' due to dehydration and blood diverting to skin for heat loss. ...Read more
