A study of the effects of anoxia on the human organism and on laboratory animals is of particular value to physiology and medicine because it lends itself well to demonstrating the interrelation of various organ systems in the body. This aspect of the problem will be stressed in the following discussions as well as some important clinical implications. Finally an attempt will be made to show which characteristics of the central nervous system are ultimately responsible for the adjustment reactions occurring in anoxia.
It is well known that under the influence of anoxia as induced by the breathing of suitable
