Ventilatory response to 8 h of isocapnic and poikilocapnic hypoxia in humans.

Abstract:

Almost all studies of the effects of prolonged hypoxia on ventilation (VE) in humans have been performed with the end-tidal PCO2 (PETCO2) left uncontrolled. The purpose of this study was to compare the effects of 8 h of hypoxia with PETCO2 held constant with 8 h of hypoxia with PETCO2 left uncontrolled. Ten subjects completed the study. Each was seated inside a chamber in which the inspired gas could be controlled so as to maintain the desired partial pressures of end-tidal gases (sampled via...
