Changes in Plasma Bradykinin Concentration and Citric Acid Cough Threshold at High Altitude
Wilderness & Environmental Medicine, pp. 353-358, 2009.
Methods Twenty healthy volunteers underwent baseline tests at 700 m before a 2-week stay at 3800 m. Angiotensin-converting enzyme activity and plasma bradykinin were measured at baseline and altitude. Citric acid cough threshold and nocturnal cough frequency were measured at baseline and throughout the 2 weeks at altitude. Results Citric ...More
