    Very Basic

    If you increase H concetration in a patient what will happen to his breathing?
    2-If you increase CO2 concentration in a patient what will happen to his breathing?





    1- High levels of H will stimulate the central chemoreceptors so you will breath more fast
    2- You will breath more fast

    why even bother with the obvious. Just know where you are need it and where you can help the most.

    hmmm.. i'm taking undergrad physio right now, and i was taught that H concentration in body does not directly effect central chemoreceptors (due to blood brain barrier), and only responds to co2 levels. on the other hand, peripheral chemoreceptors respond directly to H concentration. but i'm only in undergrad, so i'm really not sure. but this is great review, i have my physio final in a couple weeks.
    the car's on fire and there's no driver at the wheel and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides and a dark wind blows. the government is corrupt and we're on so many drugs with the radio on and the curtains drawn. we're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine and the machine is bleeding to death.

    -GYBE!

    Dear miasma you are 100% correct, but also you have to remember that PH of the CSF will affect your breathing.

    Thanks for the reply very good
