NEW FINDINGS What is the central question of this study? During hypercapnia but not normocapnia, activation of muscle afferents by postexercise circulatory occlusion increases ventilation, possibly due to additional activation of metabolite-stimulated muscle afferents. Alternatively, chemoreflex activation caused by hypercapnia may have a synergistic interaction with muscle afferent feedback, so stimulating breathing. What is the main finding and its importance? Muscle afferent activation… CONTINUE READING
