Ventilatory long-term facilitation in unanesthetized rats.


We tested the hypothesis that unanesthetized rats exhibit ventilatory long-term facilitation (LTF) after intermittent, but not continuous, hypoxia. Minute ventilation (VE) and carbon dioxide production (VCO(2)) were measured in unanesthetized, unrestrained male Sprague-Dawley rats via barometric plethysmography before, during, and after exposure to… (More)
