H(+) is maintained constant in the internal environment at a given body temperature independent of external environment according to Bernard's principle of "milieu interieur". But CO2 relates to ventilation and H(+) to kidney. Hence, the title of the chapter. In order to do this, sensors for H(+) in the internal environment are needed. The sensor-receptor is CO2/H(+) sensing. The sensor-receptor is coupled to integrate and to maintain the body's chemical environment at equilibrium. This chapter… CONTINUE READING
