Abstract

As in other species also in the anaesthetized rabbit the ventilatory minute volume increases with decreasing arterial oxygen pressure, thereby counteracting the fall of PAO2. The present paper describes how effectively the chemoreflex drive approaches, under various conditions, the arterial oxygen pressure to that of the inspiratory gas mixtures.
