The electromyographic (EMG) activities of the costal and crural diaphragm were recorded from bipolar fine-wire electrodes placed in the costal fibers adjacent to the central tendon and in the anterior portions of the crural fibers in 12 anesthetized cats. The EMG activities of costal and crural recordings were compared during posture changes from supine to head up and during progressive hyperoxic hypercapnia in both positions. The activity of both portions of the diaphragm was greater in the… CONTINUE READING
