Effect of Progressive Hypoxia with Moderate Hypercapnia on Ventilatory vs. Respiratory Sensation Responses in Humans
Ventilatory response to CO2 combined with hypoxic stimulation has been well documented as exhibiting a positive interaction between the two stimuli in humans1, and in cats2,3. Furthermore, Mohan and Duffin4 examined the effect of hypoxia on ventilatory response to CO2 using a modified Read’s rebreathing method, covering wide range of CO2 including hypocapnic region following prior hyperventilation.
