Maternal protein restriction increases respiratory and sympathetic activities and sensitizes peripheral chemoreflex in male rat offspring.
[17] Slow pranayamic breathing increases baroreflex sensitivity leading to decreased chemoreflex activation and thus reduces sympathetic reactivity.
Conversely, the chemoreflex triggered by the changing concentration of C[O.sub.2] has an influence on respiratory variability (changing the breathing rate and depth) in return [23, 24].

It is likely a function of the energy deficit that is greater than strength exercise and, consequently, the greater sympathetic activation and the lower baroreflex sensitivity due to the increase of the metaboreflex and chemoreflex activities.
Altered nitric oxide mechanism within the paraventricular nucleus contributes to the augmented carotid body chemoreflex in heart failure.

This amplified chemoreflex sensitivity causes a baseline elevated sympathetic tone in OSA, which persists during the day even in the absence of hypoxia [68, 69].
The role of peripheral chemoreflex sensitivity to hypoxia and hypercapnia in the pathogenesis of various pathological conditions has garnered much attention in recent years.
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 [11].
