abstract

  • Augmentation of endogenous adenosine with dipyridamole increases sympathetic nerve activity and ventilation in conscious humans. The ventilatory effects of endogenous adenosine are mediated predominantly by chemoreceptor activation, but the sympathetic and hemodynamic responses to endogenous adenosine are probably mediated by an additional afferent mechanism that is independent of peripheral chemoreceptor activation.
