The purpose of this study was to clarify the influence of duration of intermittent hypoxia per day on ventilatory chemosensitivity. Subjects were assigned to three different groups according to the duration of exposure to intermittent hypoxia (12.3 ± 0.2% O2): a first group (H-1, n = 6) was exposed to hypoxia for 1 h per day, the second group (H-2, n = 6) was exposed for 3 h per day, and the third (C, n = 7) was used as control. Hypoxic and hypercapnic ventilatory responses (HVR and HCVR) were… CONTINUE READING
