  • The major objective of this review is to evaluate existing information and reach conclusions regarding whether there is interaction between P(CO(2))/H(+) stimulation of carotid (peripheral) and intracranial (central) chemoreceptors. Interaction is defined as a ventilatory response to simultaneous changes in the degree of Pco2/H(+) stimulation of both chemoreceptors that is greater (hyperadditive) or less (hypoadditive) than the sum of the responses when stimulation of each set of chemoreceptors… CONTINUE READING
