Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this paper two types of evidence are presented which question the commonly presumed role of carotid chemoreceptor stimulation as the primary mediator of the hyperventilatory response to heavy exercise. First, carotid-body denervation in ponies increases their hyperventilatory response to heavy exercise. Second, the awake dog and the goat at rest show an immediate and substantial depression of tidal volume and of ventilation when their isolated carotid chemoreceptors are made hypocapnic. Accordingly, it is proposed that during heavy exercise the carotid chemoreceptors are inhibitory to respiratory motor output and that the cause of the hyperventilatory response originates from extrachemoreceptor, locomotor-linked, feed-forward stimuli.
