Ventilatory responsiveness to hypercapnic hypoxia during dopamine infusion in humans.

Abstract

The effect of dopamine on the ventilatory response to transient asphyxia was examined to test the hypothesis that dopaminergic mechanisms modulate carotid body function in humans and to determine whether a change in ventilatory responsiveness is effected by changes in tidal volume or breathing frequency. Five healthy adults were subjected to brief episodes… (More)
