Draw 3 separate graphs showing: (a) change in alveolar ventilation rate when the H+ concentration in th cerebrospinal fluid surrounding cells in the brain stem is varied; (b) the change in ventaliation seen when moving from an alveolar PCO2 concentration from 40 to 46mmHg while maintaining alveolar oxygen constant at a PO2 of 100 mm Hg, and (c) the change in ventaliation seen when changing the alveolar PO2 from 60 to 100 mm Hg while keeping alveolar PCO2 constant at 38 mm Hg. Be sure to labe the axes! Thanks!!!
