The paper describes work in progress on dynamic aspects of the physiological system concerned with chemical control of respiration in man. The immediate objective of the study is an improved understanding of the influence of the dynamic aspects of various subsystems on measures of controller function used in current clinical tests. A longer term aim involves development of improved tests for clinical investigation of control system performance. The paper presents preliminary results of simulation studies on a dynamic model of the system, including a parameter sensitivity analysis of the control loop involving the central chemoreceptors.
