|Title||The Role of the Central Chemoreceptors on Ventilatory and Hemodynamic Control during Graded Thermoneutral Water Immersion|
|Description||The purpose of this study is to determine if the central chemoreceptors play a role in ventilatory and hemodynamic control during graded thermoneutral water immersion. |
Participants will be asked to complete 5 study visits.
Study visits will be at the University at Buffalo, South Campus

|Objective||This is an experimental study that will examine the interaction between hypercapnia, central hypervolemia, and respiratory muscle fatigue on central chemosensitivity. Participants will undergo four experimental visits that will involve tests of CO2 sensitivity during graded thermoneutral water immersion. |
Keywords: hypercapnia, chemorecptors, and graded water immersion
