In a minority of conscious sheep, the hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstrictor response is blunted ("nonresponders"). The purpose of this investigation was to determine if this blunted response is related to an increased activity of H2-histamine receptors, beta-adrenergic receptors, or the generation of inhibitory prostaglandins. We measured pulmonary arterial… CONTINUE READING
