It is mainly because of oxygen deprivation that is caused due to an immature respiratory center
in the child's brain.
Therefore, the VentMG may have induced decreased muscle strain and muscle reflexes to the respiratory center
(Busse et al., 1991).
In case of central sleep apnoea, there is cessation of breathing due to various disturbances in the ventilatory control in the respiratory center
of the brain as a result of which the individual is not able to put any effort to breathe during sleep.
To include only children at risk of having asthma, the inclusion criteria were as follows: outpatients attending the respiratory center
of the hospital with an age 6 to 20 months; recurrent wheezing, defined as three or more previous episodes of wheezing with clinical improvement after bronchodilators (assessed by a physician), together with a familial history of asthma or any other clinical finding indicating atopy (e.g., allergic rhinitis or eczema) in one or both parents and or a personal history of allergic dermatitis.

automaticity while awake," Journal of Clinical Research, vol.
Researchers explained that respiratory center
depression, interference in neuromuscular transmission, and poor nerve conduction in hypothyroidism may cause alveolar hypoventilation which may affect central ventilatory control.
Patient-ventilator interaction is influenced by the machine's features, such as ventilatory mode and settings [sup],, and the patient's own breathing pattern, respiratory center
drive and effort.[sup], Patient breathing pattern, drive, and effort are affected by sedatives, whose effects vary depending on the drug used and the sedation depth.[sup], To enhance tolerance to an endotracheal tube, decrease the stress response, and minimize patient discomfort and pain, sedation is often necessary even with modes of partial support such as pressure support ventilation (PSV) in postoperative patients.
This allows for positive regulation of the sympathetic nervous system by the respiratory center
of the brainstem during times of increased C[O.sub.2].
Intense hypercapnia may lead to cerebral edema and paralysis of the respiratory center
. In concentrations of up to 1%, it will make some people feel drowsy.
To help health and safety managers find the resources they need to develop and implement a successful, Occupational Safety and Health Administration-compliant program, 3M Personal Safety Division has announced the online Center for Respiratory Protection, www.3m.com/ respiratory center
Recent studies by Fernando Martinez, regents' professor of pediatrics and director of the BIO5 Institute and the Respiratory Center
at the University of Arizona, Tucson; Donata Vercelli, professor of cellular and molecular medicine; and collaborators show that similar differences in asthma prevalence are found in two unique U.S.
