These were physiologic observations that tallied well with the observations of F. De Castro, a student, and later a colleague, of Ramón y Cajal, who was sufficiently impressed by the histologic structure, location, and rich innervation of the carotid body to propose that it might be stimulated by blood-borne substances (Fig. 25 Figure 1-13 Drawing by De Castro showing the structure of the chemoreceptor.

During the following decade, he and his coworkers, Neergaard and Wirz, applied Poiseuille’s law for laminar flow and his equations to the determination of airway resistance. Use of Fleisch’s pneumotachygraph, coupled with periodic interruptions of airflow, permitted measurement of alveolar pressure. Clinically useful measurements of alveolar pressure became available in 1956 with the introduction by DuBois and associates of the whole-body plethysmograph, which they coupled with the application of Boyle’s law.
