To investigate the contribution of vascular and metabolic stimuli to the sustained hyperpnea after exercise, the respiratory effects of obstructing and then releasing the femoral blood flow were recorded in 15 normal volunteers during recovery from steady-state cycle exercise (80 W). Obstruction was achieved using cuffs around the upper thighs, inflated for the first 2 min of recovery to a pressure of 200 mmHg. Cuff inflation significantly reduced ventilation during recovery compared with… CONTINUE READING
