Alveolar PCO2 oscillations and ventilation at sea level and at high altitude
Journal of applied physiology (Bethesda, Md. : 1985), Volume 104, Issue 2, 2008, Pages 404-415.
This study examines the potential for a ventilatory drive, independent of mean PCO2, but depending instead on changes in PCO2 that occur during the respiratory cycle. This responsiveness is referred to here as "dynamic ventilatory sensitivity." The normal, spontaneous, respiratory oscillations in alveolar PCO2 have been modified with insp...More
