To determine whether the Hering-Breuer inflation reflex could be demonstrated in the presence and absence of behavioral influences on breathing, lung inflation was performed via the tracheal stoma in eleven laryngectomized subjects: seven seated at rest with their eyes closed and six recumbent during their deepest non-rapid eye movement sleep.(More)
Patients with interstitial lung disease (ILD) characteristically exhibit an increased ventilation and breathing frequency when awake. We wanted to see if these increases persisted during deep non-REM sleep. Using noninvasive techniques, we have quantified the pattern of breathing, arterial oxygen saturation, and transcutaneous PCO2 (PtcCO2) during(More)
Tidal volume (VT), and inspiratory (tI) AND EXPIRATORY (TE) durations have been measured in anaesthetized cats on stimulation of alveolar type J (nociceptive) and lung irritant receptors by intravenous injections of phenyl diguanide and of histamine acid phosphate respectively. The reflexes were studied during eupnoea, hypercapnic and hypoxic hyperpnoea,(More)
