Reflex-mediated bronchoconstriction in cold climates may be more important than it has previously been thought. This issue has seldom been studied using physiological methods. We wanted to investigate, using physiological methods, what triggers the bronchoconstriction occurring at cold ambient temperature during resting nasal ventilation: cooling of the… CONTINUE READING
