By F. De Castro (auth.), Prof. Constancio Gonzalez, Prof. Colin A. Nurse, Prof. Chris Peers (eds.)

The carotid physique arterial chemoreceptors represent particular sensory receptors able to speedily tracking the degrees of arterial blood oxygen and carbon dioxide. each time helpful they begin homeostatic reflexes aimed to right the detected deviations. Chemoreceptor cells of the carotid physique represent excellent types to review the full approaches of O2-sensing in addition to CO2-sensing.

The current ebook represents an up to date evaluate of the body structure of the carotid physique chemoreceptors. most vital, the ebook offers the traits within the box because it includes ends up in the themes which are on the frontiers of destiny advancements in O2-sensing in chemoreceptor cells. also, it comprises facts from reviews carried in different O2-sensing tissues together with pulmonary vasculature and erythropoietin generating cells in addition to on vital CO2/pH chemoreceptors.

Arterial Chemoreceptors can be regarded as a first-rate resource of data and as a tenet to each researcher within the box of arterial chemoreception within the years yet to come. it's also a massive resource of knowledge for researchers and clinicians within the fields of hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction and pulmonary high blood pressure in addition to for researchers within the box of erythropoietin and relevant chemoreceptors.
