Impaired response to hypoxia after bilateral carotid body resection for treatment of bronchial asthma.

Abstract

Decreased ventilatory responsiveness to isocapnic hypoxia and increased breath-holding times were measured in a 12-year-old asthmatic boy who had undergone bilateral resection of the carotid bodies. The patient had episodes of cyanosis in which he became disoriented, but he had no subjective feelings of discomfort or dyspnea.
