Abstract

The isolated upper airway pressure and flow changes during electrical stimulation of the genioglossus muscle in spontaneously breathing anesthetized dogs were measured at given pressures in the inspiratory direction. Upper airway resistance was maximal during no stimulation and decreased rapidly with stimulation at frequencies up to about 40 Hz.
