Control of Ventilation: Effects of Chemo and Mechano Receptors

Producer: University of California (UC Davis)

Experiments demonstrate the effects on respiratory control of central and peripheral chemoreceptors, as well as those of intrapulmonary stretch receptors. The effects on ventilation of increased carbon dioxide (hypercapnia), decreased oxygen (hypoxia), and the two stimuli combined are documented in the first half of the video. In the second half, the effects of the intrapulmonary stretch receptors in producing the Hering-Breuer reflex are examined. This reflex is studied in the intact animal and after bilateral vagotomy.
