Histamine-induced end-tidal inspiratory activity and lung receptors in cats.


Hyperinflation in acute asthma has been associated with inspiratory muscle activity, which persist during expiration. The main objective of the present study was to evaluate the role of rapidly adapting receptors (RARs), slowly adapting receptors (SARs) and C-fibre endings in generating end-tidal inspiratory activity (ETIA). ETIA was induced by intravenous… (More)
