if a person has stooped breathing and is receiving pulmonary resuscitation, would it be better to administer pure oxygen or a mixture of carbon dioxide/oxygen?why?

Smoking, air pollution and altitude all affect the rate of respiration. Explain the effects of each of these on respiration. Why?

  • Biology -

    To start you off, carbon dioxide in the body, specifically the part of the brain called the hypothalamus, stimulates the breathing response.

    For the second question, you can Google each of the 3 terms above along with "respiration" to get your information.
