Effects of nasal cold receptors on pattern of breathing.


To investigate the effect on the pattern of breathing of cooling receptors in the nose, eight normal male volunteers underwent a steady-state CO2 stimulation by nasal inhalation. The inhaled gas temperature was randomly switched between "warm" (32 degrees C) and "cold" (2 degrees C) at each of three levels of inspired CO2 fraction (FICO2). Breathing cold… (More)
