Control of apnea in the hibernating ground squirrel

Rhonda J. Garland
During hibernation the breathing pattern of the golden-mantled ground squirrel consists of short episodes of breathing separated by pauses ranging in length from less than a minute to greater than 30 minutes. A breathing pattern as such results in wide fluctuations in the partial pres sure of oxygen (PO₂ )and carbon dioxide (PCO₂)in the blood and lungs; the increase in PO₂ and decrease in PCO₂ during a breathing episode are reversed in the following apnea....
