BACKGROUND: In humans the ventilatory response to isocapnic hypoxia is biphasic: an initial increase in minute ventilation (VE) from baseline, the acute hypoxic response, is followed after 3-5 min by a slow ventilatory decay, the hypoxic ventilatory decline, and a new steady state, 25-40% greater than baseline VE, is reached in about 15-20 min. The transition from 20 min of isocapnic hypoxia into normoxia results in a rapid decrease in VE, the off-response. In humans, halothane, at subanesthetic concentrations, is known to decrease the acute hypoxic response.

In the appendicular skeleton, substantial evidence demonstrates that somatosensory input from deep tissues including limb muscles and joints elicits somatosympathetic reflexes. Much less is known about the presence and organization of these reflexes from the axial skeleton. We determined if mechanical loading of the lumbar spine and lumbar paraspinal muscle irritation reflexively affects postganglionic sympathetic nerve discharge (SND) to the spleen and kidney.
