PURPOSE Systemic hyperoxia, hypercapnia, and hypoxia are known to alter retinal perfusion. The effects such experimentally induced systemic blood gas perturbations have on inner neuroretinal function in humans were examined. METHODS Twenty healthy adults participated in each of three test sessions. The effects of breathing pure oxygen (O2), carbogen, or a hypoxic gas on the pattern electroretinogram (pERG) were investigated. The stimulus consisted of high-contrast, black-and-white, 48-min arc… CONTINUE READING
