Laryngeal hemiplegia increases the respiratory effort required during exercise. By use of 15-micron-diam radionuclide-labeled microspheres, respiratory muscle blood flows were studied at rest, submaximal exercise (SE), maximal exercise (ME), and ME + adenosine (3 mumol X kg-1 X min-1) in nine healthy laryngeal hemiplegic (LH) ponies to ascertain whether vasodilator reserve in these tissues may be exhausted during SE, which caused maximal respiratory frequency (f) to be reached. Blood flows were… CONTINUE READING
