Respiratory effects of positive and negative pressure breathing were studied in 1- and 4-day-old rabbit pups anesthetized with ketamine (50 mg/kg, im) and acepromazine (3 mg/kg, im). We recorded tidal volume (VT), tracheal pressure (Ptr), and integrated diaphragmatic EMG (DiEMG). Inspiratory (TI) and expiratory time (TE) were measured from the records of… CONTINUE READING
