To assess the relationship between central control of upper airway and respiratory muscle, simultaneously recorded diaphragmatic electromyogram (EMGdi) and genioglossal EMG (EMG ge) responses to CO2 rebreathing were compared in five supine volunteers. Both EMGs were quantitated in terms of inspiratory peak moving time-average activity. In all subjects both EMGdi and EMGge increased linearly with increasing alveolar CO2 pressure (r = 0.93 +/- 0.04 and 0.87 +/- 0.07, respectively), resulting in a… CONTINUE READING
