Ventilatory response to hypoxia in experimental pathology of the diaphragm.

Abstract

In this study, we examined the usefulness of arterial blood gas variables, as changed by the hypoxic stimulus, in discerning various experimentally-induced conditions of diaphragm weakness in anesthetized cats. We defined three experimental situations (models): (i) intact muscle, statistical Class I, (ii) four degrees of muscle dysfunction (after sequential… (More)
