Respiratory rhythm variations of reaction time after respiratory arrest


, : Respiratory rhythm variations of reaction time after respiratory arrest. Pflugers Arch Ges Physiol Mens Tiere 280(4): 333-336

In 10 healthy subjects the relationship of reaction time to an acoustical signal after expiratory arrest was studied. Middle range of reaction times showed considerable variations, which were evidently related to the expiration times. Individual maximum and minimum values fell in expected ranges. The amplitude of the variations, which after an interval of 2 respiratory cycles had passed and which had corresponded in the middle of the observations to spontaneous respiration, showed a decreasing tendency. It is concluded that variations in respiratory reaction time of central respiratory rhythms can be produced.
