Ventilatory and heart rate responses to hypoxia and hypercapnia were measured in eight normal subjects (5 women, 3 men, ages 22-27 yr) during wakefulness (W), slow-wave sleep (SWS), and rapid-eye-movement sleep (REM). Ventilatory responses to progressive isocapnic hypoxia were measured as k, the slope of the line relating the logarithm of incremental ventilation to alveolar O2 partial pressure (PAO2) and as the incremental ventilation at PAO2 = 40 Torr delta V 40. Values for k (mean +/- SE… CONTINUE READING
