Dynamics of the ventilatory response to step changes in end-tidal PCO2 in older humans.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the ventilatory response to carbon dioxide (CO2) in young and older men. Six square-wave steps of end-tidal CO2 (PETCO2) were administered in euoxia (PETO2 = 100 torr), hyperoxia (PETO2 = 500 torr), and mild hypoxia (PETO2 = 60 torr). The peripheral and central chemoreflex loops were described by three parameters… (More)
