We studied the effects of hypoxic, hypercapnic, and hypercapnic-hypoxic exposures on brain tolerance to ischemia. All respiratory training modes had a neuroprotective effect, but the most pronounced effect was observed after exposure to hypercapnic hypoxia. Experimental stroke in rats preliminary exposed to hypercapnic hypoxia was associated with minimal neurological defi cit and motor coordination disturbances in comparison with training modes.
