    • The hypoxic ventilatory response (HVR) is the body’s first line of defense against environmental hypoxia, for example, at high altitude. In acute hypoxia, the HVR ia a reflex increase in ventilation in response to decreased arterial PO2, which is rapidly sensed by arterial chemoreceptors primarily in the carotid bodies.With sustained exposure to hypoxia, the HVR changes (8)...
