    Background Expiratory muscle action is prominent during anaesthesia and can impair lung function. This activity is exaggerated by the use of opioids. Airway pressure during occlusion of expiration would be a valuable measure in the study of expiratory muscle activation. However, this would only...

    BACKGROUND: Patients with Iate-onset Pompe disease develop progressive hypercapnic respiratory failure that can be disproportionate to the respiratory muscle compromise and/or thoracic restriction. Although recent studies have reported the presence of a blunted hypercapnic respiratory response...

    Background and Objective: Asthma is associated with airway narrowing in response to bronchoconstricting stimuli and increased airway smooth muscle (ASM) mass. In addition, some studies have suggested impaired β-agonist induced ASM relaxation in asthmatics, but the mechanism is not known....

    The effect of a head-down tilt on the responses of the external respiration system and the functional capacity of the diaphragm and parasternal muscles were investigated in 11 healthy subjects. A 30-min head-down tilt posture (−30° relative to the horizontal) significantly increased the...

    Acute experiments on rats were performed to study the effects of intraventricular microinjections of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) on the volume-time parameters of external respiration and the inspiration-inhibiting Hering–Breuer reflex. The state of this reflex before and after GABA...
