Tonic respiratory drive in the absence of rhythm generation in the conscious dog.

Abstract

This study was designed to determine whether a chemoreceptor-mediated tonic respiratory drive exists below the apneic threshold. Expiratory (triangularis sterni) and inspiratory (diaphragm and parasternal intercostal) electromyographic activities were recorded in three awake relaxed dogs breathing through an endotracheal tube inserted into a permanent… (More)
