Acetazolamide protects against posthypoxic unstable breathing in the C57BL/6J mouse.


Acetazolamide (Acz), a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, is used to manage periodic breathing associated with altitude and with heart failure. We examined whether Acz would alter posthypoxic ventilatory behavior in the C57BL/6J (B6) mouse model of recurrent central apnea. Experiments were performed with unanesthetized, awake adult male B6 mice (n = 9… (More)
