Clinical disorders associated with pulmonary venous hypertension frequently result in tachypnea and hyperpnea. The response to pulmonary vascular congestion (PVC) in anesthetized or decerebrate animals has consisted of modest and bidirectional changes in respiratory rate with no hyperpnea. We hypothesized that anesthesia or decerebration in previous animal experiments may have attenuated the hyperpneic response that would otherwise have been evident. A conscious dog model was developed in which… CONTINUE READING
