When exposed to a hypoxic environment the body's first response is a reflex increase in ventilation, termed the hypoxic ventilatory response (HVR). With chronic sustained hypoxia (CSH), such as during acclimatization to high altitude, an additional time-dependent increase in ventilation occurs, which increases the HVR. This secondary increase persists after(More)
Recently, inflammatory processes have been shown to increase O(2)-sensitivity of the carotid body during chronic sustained hypoxia [Liu, X., He, L., Stensaas, L., Dinger, B., Fidone, S., 2009. Adaptation to chronic hypoxia involves immune cell invasion and increased expression of inflammatory cytokines in rat carotid body. Am. J. Physiol. Lung Cell Mol.(More)
