An assessment of central-peripheral ventilatory chemoreflex interaction in humans.

Abstract:

The independence of the central and peripheral chemoreflexes has been tested in humans. Acute metabolic acidosis generated by a prior bout of brief, hard exercise was used to stimulate primarily the peripheral chemoreceptors, and respiratory acidosis generated by inhaled CO2 was used to stimulate both central and peripheral chemoreceptors. Seven healthy young men were studied. Ventilation and arterial pH, PCO2 and PO2 were recorded. Peripheral chemoreflex sensitivity to hypoxia during acute m...
