Ten asthmatic and 10 normal subjects were exposed to 7 air conditions varying in temperature (-2 to 49 degrees C) and relative humidity (10 or 100%). Normocapnic hyperventilation for 3 min at 40% maximal voluntary ventilation was performed for each condition. A constant-volume body plethysmograph measured functional residual capacity and specific airway conductance (SGaw). Three to five sets of functional residual capacity and SGaw measurements were taken before and 1, 5, and 10 min after each… CONTINUE READING
