Chemoreceptor Control of Organ Vascular Resistance during Acute Systemic Hypoxia
The purpose of this study was to determine in the anesthetized paralyzed, artificially ventilated cat exposed to acute systemic hypoxia if the carotid and aortic bodies acting in tandem or individually, control the vascular resistance of specific organs.
