Respiratory effects in humans of a 5-day elevation of end-tidal PCO2 by 8 Torr.

Abstract:

The aims of this study were to determine 1) whether ventilatory adaptation occurred over a 5-day exposure to a constant elevation in end-tidal PCO2 and 2) whether such an exposure altered the sensitivity of the chemoreflexes to acute hypoxia and hypercapnia. Ten healthy human subjects were studied over a period of 13 days. Their ventilation, chemoreflex sensitivities, and acid-base status were measured daily before, during, and after 5 days of elevated end-tidal PCO2 at 8 Torr above normal. T...
