Respiratory rhythms in the electroencephalogram and the role of the respiratory centre in establishment of the electrical activity of the brain during resuscitation after clinical death

, : Respiratory rhythms in the electroencephalogram and the role of the respiratory centre in establishment of the electrical activity of the brain during resuscitation after clinical death. Fiziol Zhur Sssr [Transl] 46(4): 512-523

Our material has established that the respiratory center can exercise toning or exciting influences on the higher parts of the brain in the verv early stages of restoration of central nervous system functions after clinical death. Under certain conditions the respiratory center may be the pacemaker for the returning background activity of the brain. The influence of the respiratory center on the returning electrical activity is similar in nature to the influence of stimulations of the sense organs (auditory stimulation) with which it may be sum mated. It is postulated that the influence of the respiratory center on the background electrical activity of the brain, apparently effected through the reticular formation of the brain stem, is in its mode of action a special case of action on the reticular formation similar to that of other afferent systems. The specific features of the influence of the respiratory center on, and its function in, the production of the electrical activity of the brain is probably determined by the constancy, rhythmicity and automatism of the activity of this center and its close connection with the reticular formation in the brain stem.
