Estimates of the proportional contribution of the peripheral chemoreceptors (i.e., the carotid bodies) to human ventilatory control during moderate exercise (i.e., below the lactate threshold, theta L) suggest that they: (a) exert no discernible influence on the initial (usually rapid) phase I component; (b) provide significant modulation of the slower, exponential phase II dynamics, therefore contributing to the tightness of arterial PCO2 regulation and the magnitude of the transient hypoxemia… CONTINUE READING
