In order to study the effects of hypoxic and hypercapnic respiratory gas mixtures on brain activity, the auditory nerve brain stem evoked potentials (ABP) were recorded in 6 human volunteers and in 12 cats while they were breathing various gas mixtures. In humans, no effect of gas mixtures containing 9-13% O2 or 7.5-10% CO2 was observed on the wave form, latency and amplitude of the ABP. The cats were exposed to up to 25% CO2 and down to 5.5% O2 or to combined hypoxic and hypercapnic gas… CONTINUE READING
