  • ventilation
  • The distinction lies in what is observed at the trough of ventilation: Cheyne-Stokes respiration involves apnea (since apnea is a prominent feature in their original description) while periodic breathing involves hypopnea (abnormally small but not absent breaths). (wikipedia.org)
  • apnea
  • Cheyne-Stokes respiration /ˈtʃeɪnˈstoʊks/ is an abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by progressively deeper, and sometimes faster, breathing followed by a gradual decrease that results in a temporary stop in breathing called an apnea. (wikipedia.org)
  • airway
  • If a victim was choking before falling unconscious, the Heimlich maneuver may be used to clear the airway before beginning mouth-to-mouth respiration. (britannica.com)

  • Another example is methanogenesis, a form of carbonate respiration, that is used to produce methane gas by anaerobic digestion. (wikipedia.org)
  • thus
  • Respiration is sometimes called BIOLOGICAL OXIDATION and thus may be compared to BURNING. (angelfire.com)
  • Thus Cheyne-Stokes respiration can be maintained over periods of many minutes or hours with a repetitive pattern of apneas and hyperpneas. (wikipedia.org)
  • Time
  • We must probably also at the same time state the causes of respiration as well, since in some cases living and the reverse depend on this. (wikipedia.org)
