The assessment of chemoreflex sensitivity (CRS) is of major importance in studies investigating the adaptation of ventilation to the needs of human body. Increased sensitivity of chemoreceptors to both hypoxia and hypercapnia has recently been shown to be a powerful and independent prognosticator in heart failure (HF) patients, thus highlighting the importance of the assessment of CRS also in the clinical setting. In spite of this, the measurement of CRS is currently limited to the research… CONTINUE READING
