The hypoxic drive is a phenomenon in which:
A) a chronically hypoxic patient's primary respiratory drive is stimulated by increased levels of carbon dioxide in the arterial blood.
B) a relatively large percentage of patients with COPD become acutely apneic after receiving high-flow oxygen.
C) high levels of oxygen rapidly depress a COPD patient's respiratory rate and depth, leading to worsened hypoxia and severe acidosis.
D) bicarbonate ions migrate into the cerebrospinal fluid of a chronically hypoventilating patient, making the brain think that acid and base are in balance.
