Effect of 8 Hours of Isocapnic/Poikilocapnic Hypoxia on the Ventilatory Response to CO2
The ventilatory sensitivity to CO2 is thought to increase following a sustained exposure to hypoxia (1–5). This study was conducted to determine whether 8 h of poikilo-capnic hypoxia could elicit a change in the hyperoxic ventilatory response to CO2, and whether there were any differences between poikilocapnic and isocapnic exposures to hypoxia.
