Spike activity of bulbar respiratory neurons in cats with myocardial ischemia: Microelectrode study

Abstract

Clinical data are evidence of changes in respiratory function when the coronary blood flow is disturbed [9, 14]. It has been shown experimentally that changes in activity of some types of respiratory neurons of the ganglion nodosum and neurons of the respiratory center take place in response to compression of the coronary vessel [4, 6]. It can be tentatively suggested that the cause of the respiratory disturbances in these patients may be the modified character of afferent signals reaching the CNS in acute myocardial ischemia.
