That the carotid body has a role in circulatory control is well-known - whether we consider 'lumped component' analysis of the circulation as a whole, or the blood flow to individual regions. The present report serves largely to review our observations of the cerebral blood flow (CBQ̇) response to acute hypoxemia, and to contrtibute to the lively discussion of this phenomenon that has appeared recently.
