The role of the carotid chemoreceptors in the CO2-hyperpnea under hyperoxia

• Published 1972 in Pflügers Archiv

Abstract

In anesthetized rabbits rebreathing oxygen or inhaling constant mixtures of CO2 and O2, the influence of inactivation of the carotid sinus nerves by section or temporary cold blocking on the respiratory response to increased $$P_{A_{{\text{CO}}_{\text{2}} } }$$ was investigated. In some of the experiments the vagi were intact, in others they were cut. Even… (More)
