Reflex tracheal gland secretion evoked by stimulation of bronchial C-fibers in dogs.


We examined the effect of stimulating bronchial C-fibers on tracheal submucosal gland secretion in anesthetized dogs with open chest and lungs ventilated through the lower trachea. We opened the upper trachea in the midline, retracted the cut edges, and sprayed powdered tantalum onto the exposed mucosa. Secretions from the ducts of submucosal glands caused… (More)
