Ventilatory effects of substance P, vasoactive intestinal peptide, and nitroprusside in humans.

Abstract

Animal studies suggest that the neuropeptides, substance P and vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP), may influence carotid body chemoreceptor activity and that substance P may take part in the carotid body response to hypoxia. The effects of these peptides on resting ventilation and on ventilatory responses to hypoxia and to hypercapnia have been… (More)
