Hypoxic ventilatory decline: site of action.
Although superficially similar, HVD appears to arise from different mechanisms in the awake animal as compared with the anesthetized animal. Consequently, the good evidence supporting a central site of action for hypoxia in the genesis of HVD in the anesthetized animal cannot be used as evidence for a central site of action for hypoxia in the awake animal. In their paper on HVD in the awake cat, Long et al. (10) conclude: "The striking similarity between feline and human ventilatory responses...Expand abstract
