1. Electromyography was used to measure the response of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles to CO2 in artificially ventilated decerebrate cats. 2. Hypocapnia produced tonic activity in either inspiratory or expiratory muscles or both, according to the preparation. 3. A graded effect of CO2 on both rhythmic and tonic activity was observed and for the latter this could be seen at as low as 10 torr PA,CO2. 4. In one human subject tonic firing of expiratory motoneurones was also induced by… CONTINUE READING
