Abstract

Oral acute and prolonged salicylate administration to ten male patients with obstructive pulmonary emphysema and hypercarbia failed to improve the impaired ventilatory response to inhaled carbon dioxide so characteristic of this group of subjects. Ventilatory depression consequent to inhalation of high oxygen gas mixtures was not inhibited, in these patients, by salicylate therapy.
