Muscular exercise is accompanied by evident and perfectly matched cardiovascular and respiratory adjustments to avoid changes in arterial blood gases. The mechanisms responsible for this perfect regulation have not yet been defined. Our previous experimental investigations have shown that a consistent rate of cardiorespiratory reflex responses to exercise is caused by chemosensitive muscular receptors activation. The 2 different types of classical muscular exercise (rhythmic and isometric exercise) are joined with the 2 different patterns of cardiorespiratory reflex responses attributed in our opinion to the activation of 2 different kinds of muscle receptors (K and P). It has been observed that the increase in ventilation (VE), elicited by activation of both types of chemoreceptors during muscular experimental exercise is not accompanied by significant variations of partial pressure of CO2 (PaCO2) in the arterial blood (isocapnic hyperpnea). This suggest that muscular chemoreceptor activation during physical exercise determines an adequate cardiopulmonary matching. The main purpose of the present study has been to verify, in anesthetized rabbits, if also the chemical activation of muscular receptors was able to evoke reflexly an adequate degree of cardiopulmonary matching. The ventilation reflex changes and the concomitant variations of PaCO2 induced by injection of bradikinin (BK 250 ng) and hypertonic solutions (NaCl 10% 1 ml) in femoral artery have been evaluated in 10 anesthetized rabbits. The PaCO2 modifications observed during reflex hyperpnea have been compared with those recorded during hyperpnea induced by artificial ventilation.
