Chemoreceptors and Reflexes in Breathing : Cellular and Molecular Aspects
This volume reviews basic knowledge of the sensory receptors and reflexes that control respiration and describes recent developments and new directions in research. Thirty-eight distinguished contributors discuss the vascular and comparative aspects of peripheral chemoreceptors; sensory mechanisms of the carotid body; oxygen sensing mechanisms; peripheral chemoreceptor adaptations; central effects of hypoxia; airway mechanisms; and central mechanisms and effectors. The volume is published in the memory of Julius H. Comroe, who influenced and shaped medical education and research in the vital areas that are the focus of this volume.
