    ..Consistent with previous animal work, these data indicate that the CC contributes to exercise-induced increases in sympathetic vasoconstrictor outflow. ..

    ..Despite relatively minor airflow obstruction, mild COPD patients exhibit a diminished DLCO and capillary blood volume response to exercise, which appears to contribute to ventilatory inefficiency and greater dyspnea. ..

    ..These results establish an important role for the CCs in cardiovascular control in the healthy animal during exercise and in the CHF animal both at rest and during exercise. ..

    ..004), but decreased in HF (P = 0.02). Our findings indicate that the peripheral chemoreceptor contributes to cardiovascular control at rest in HF patients and during exercise in risk-matched controls. ..

    ..These findings indicate that the carotid chemoreceptor contributes to skeletal muscle blood flow regulation during normoxic exercise in healthy humans, but that the influence of the CC on blood flow regulation in hypoxia is limited. ..
