  • Hypoxia can depress ventilation, respiratory load sensation, and the cough reflex, and potentially other protective respiratory reflexes such as respiratory muscle responses to increased respiratory load. In sleep-disordered breathing, increased respiratory load and hypoxia frequently coexist. This study aimed to examine the effects of hypoxia on the reflex responses of 1) the genioglossus (the largest upper airway dilator muscle) and 2) the scalene muscle (an obligatory inspiratory muscle) to… CONTINUE READING
