10] Progesterone decreases the threshold and increases the sensitivity of the central ventilator chemoreflex
response to carbon dioxide.
Altered nitric oxide mechanism within the paraventricular nucleus contributes to the augmented carotid body chemoreflex
in heart failure.
Diet and exercise improve chemoreflex
sensitivity in patients with metabolic syndrome and obstructive sleep apnea.
with simultaneous metaboreflex and chemoreflex
activation was conducted on 13 healthy participants randomized into three groups: gruop I had PC activation with isocapnic hypoxia, group II had isometric handgrip exercise in normoxia and group III had metaboreflex activation in exercise during hypoxia .
SKY decreases chemoreflex
sensitivity, increases arterial baroreceptor sensitivity, oxygenation, and exercises tolerance.
Malnutrition enhances cardiovascular responses to chemoreflex
activation in awake rats.
Slow breathing reduces chemoreflex
response to hypoxia and hypercapnia, and increases baroreflex sensitivity.
and baroreflex interactions in cardiovascular regulation in humans.
2005) found a reduction in the ventilatory response to hypercapnia in swimmers after 12 weeks of inspiratory and expiratory muscle training program but no differences with their control group, indicating that the changes in chemoreflex
threshold were the result of the TS.
Slow breathing reduces sympathetic activity quickly, tends to increase baroreflex sensitivity and reduces chemoreflex
sensitivity (17, 24) in COPD patients.
Role of the peripheral chemoreflex
in the early stages of ventilatory acclimatization to altitude.
The mechanisms for the activation of the SNS during 24 hour are not fully understood, but one possibility is that increased chemoreflex
gain by OSA results in tonic chemoreflex
activation even during normoxia, with consequent increased sympathetic activity (26).
