The effects of stimulation of carotid body chemoreceptors on blood pressure, heart rate and ventilation were compared in normal rats and rats with local or generalised tetanus toxicity induced by injection of the toxin. Carotid chemoreceptor stimulation in an increase in blood pressure and a decrease in heart rate in both control and tetanus rats. However… CONTINUE READING
