Carotid body afferent contributions to activity of the intermediate area of the ventral medullary surface (IVMS) following transient hypoxia and hyperoxia were examined in 6 spontaneously breathing, pentobarbital-anesthetized cats. Two tidal breaths of 100% N2, 100% O2, or room air, were randomly administered before and after carotid sinus denervation (CSD). Images of scattered light from the IVMS showed that activity increased with hypoxia (10.1 +/- 2.4%), and decreased with hyperoxia (4.8 +/- 1.8%). CSD significantly increased the magnitude and delayed the onset of the hypoxic response, but reversed the initial component of the hyperoxic response. We conclude that carotid body afferents modulate the magnitude and timing of IVMS responses to transient respiratory challenges.
