Sine waves of alveolar CO2 at constant high alveolar O2, and sine waves of alveolar hypoxia (1/(PA, O2 -C) where C congruent to 32 torr) at constant alveolar CO2 have been administered to three subjects in each case. Six different periods of the sine waves were studied, ranging between 900 and 30 s for the CO2 sine waves and 300 and 20 s for the hypoxic sine waves. The sinusoidal variations in inspiratory and expiratory volumes (VT, I, VT, E), durations (TI, TE) and mean flows (vI, vE) produced… CONTINUE READING
