Time domains of the hypoxic ventilatory response.


The ventilatory response to hypoxia depends on the pattern and intensity of hypoxic exposure and involves several physiological mechanisms. These mechanisms differ in their effect (facilitation or depression) on different components of ventilation (tidal volume and frequency) and in their time course (seconds to years). Some mechanisms last long enough to… (More)
