Opioids affect the respiratory rhythm centres of the brainstem, causing slower and irregular respirations, which become increasingly shallow as opioid receptor activation increases.
Selim noted that opioids reduce respiration rate more than tidal volume and cause changes to respiratory rhythm. "[Opioids] decrease hypercapnia but increase hypoxic ventilatory response, decrease the arousal index, decrease upper-airway muscle tone, and decrease and also act on chest and abdominal wall compliance."
In the distraction group (n=56), women received a VR session (an underwater walk cut off from all ambient noise) and the hypnosis group (n=44) received a VR session with hypnosis focused on breathing, slowing respiratory rhythm, along with suggestions to repeat the technique later to find well-being and calm as needed (AQUA Oncomfort EeA).
They are widely expressed in the central nervous system (CNS), especially in brainstem respiratory neurons and motor neuron [9, 12], including the pre-Botzinger complex of the medulla oblongata, which is the generator of basic respiratory rhythm [9,11-13].
An abnormal respiratory rhythm was the second common indication for MV, accounting for 24% of the entire cohort.
There are present oscilatory movements, given by the dissociation of the scapulo-humeral belt from the pelvic and arm movement--opposite foot, it is coordinated with the respiratory rhythm. In the descending phase there are used almost all the body muscles, permanently changing the mass center, being dependent on the itinerary particularities and arms permanently balance the movements.
Many decades ago, researchers suggested that heart rate sinus arrhythmia might be caused by the regulation of cardiac vagal outflow involving the same neuronal processes that generate the respiratory rhythm and reside within the brainstem (Anrep 1936).
Second, we were unable to validate the effect of respiratory rhythm on the relationship between cardiac and locomotor rhythms.
While the basic respiratory rhythm in normal situations is maintained by the impulses discharged by the dorsal group of neurons, the pneumotaxic center indirectly controls the duration of inspiration helps in relaying the supra-pontine impulses which promote voluntary inspiration and expiration.
