Abstract:

Studies completed during this contract year were aimed at defining a the role of the carotid bodies in ventilatory acclimatization to chronic hypoxia of varying severity b the effects of acute or chronic hypoxia on respiratory muscle metabolism c the effect of changes in pulmonary mechanics on periodic breathing during sleep in hypoxia and d the effects of heavy exercise--in normoxia and hypoxia--on chest wall mechanics and in turn on the control of ventilation and gas exchange in humans.
