Effects of intermittent hypoxia on cat petrosal ganglion responses induced by acetylcholine, adenosine 5'-triphosphate and NaCN.

Abstract

Exposure to chronic intermittent hypoxia (CIH) for 4 days enhances the cat carotid body (CB) chemosensory responses to acute hypoxia. However, it is not known if CIH enhances the responses of the petrosal ganglion (PG) neurons that innervate the CB chemoreceptor cells. Accordingly, we studied the effects of the CB putative excitatory transmitter… (More)
