NMDA Receptors of A5 Area in the Regulation of Blood Pressure and Respiratory Activity during Hypoxia in Rats


In narcotized (40 mg/kg sodium ethaminal intraperitoneally) spontaneously breathing albino rats, experimental short-term hypoxia induced BP drop and increased phrenic nerve firing rate. Unilateral microinjection of a selective NMDA receptor blocker ketamine hydrochloride (50 nl; 4 mM) into A5 area did not affect BP and phrenic nerve fi ring rate. However… (More)
