During entrance into hibernation i n mammals, continuous breathing i s converted to intermittent breathing i n conjunction with the reductions i n metabolic rate (MR) and body temperature (Tg). The intermittent breathing pattern i s characterized by long non-ventilatory periods (Tjjyp) , which are interrupted by bursts of several breaths (Cheyne-Stokes r e s p i r a t i o n , CSR) i n some species, or by only sing l e breaths i n other species. The nature of t h i s species difference i n… CONTINUE READING
