Adv Exp Med Biol 618:277-81. 2007..K., or abroad during his many forays into thin air. In 2007 the International Hypoxia Symposium honored Jim for his outstanding service and role in leading the entire field of high altitude medicine and physiology...
- Mechanisms of improvement of respiratory failure in patients with restrictive thoracic disease treated with non-invasive ventilationA H Nickol
Osler Chest Unit, Churchill Hospital, Headington, Oxford OX4 7LJ, UK
Thorax 60:754-60. 2005..We hypothesised that NIV may reverse respiratory failure by increasing the ventilatory response to carbon dioxide, reducing inspiratory muscle fatigue, or enhancing pulmonary mechanics...
- Temazepam at high altitude reduces periodic breathing without impairing next-day performance: a randomized cross-over double-blind studyAnnabel H Nickol
Oxford Centre for Respiratory Medicine, Churchill Hospital, Headington, Oxford, UK
J Sleep Res 15:445-54. 2006..We conclude that at high altitude temazepam is effective in reducing periodic breathing, and is safe to use, without any adverse effect upon next-day performance...
- A quick and easy method of measuring the hypercapnic ventilatory response in patients with COPDAnnabel H Nickol
Clinical and Academic Unit of Sleep and Breathing, National Heart and Lung Institute, Royal Brompton Hospital, Fulham Road, London SW3 6NP, UK
Respir Med 103:258-67. 2009..We have tested the hypothesis that end-tidal PCO(2) may be used to test the HCVR in COPD during non-steady-state rebreathing, despite the fact that large (arterial-end-tidal) PCO(2) differences (P(a-et)CO(2)) exist during air breathing...
