About this book

Like the geological treasures that surely must lie below the Athabasca glacier, some of the answers to key questions about the control of respiration remain buried. But bit by bit, year by year the ice is melting and perhaps in some areas the rocks are starting to be revealed. With a mission to advance our understanding of the emerging th th gems of respiration, the X Oxford Conference was held between 19–24 September (2006) next to the turquoise and tranquil waters of Lake Louise, in the middle of Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. Since its inauguration 30 years ago in Oxford, the Oxford Conference on mo- ling and control of breathing has been held every three years in locations spanning the globe (a list of past conferences and publications that have emerged is included in the pages that follow). The series has provided key opportunities for respiratory scientists to meet with colleagues, discuss recent advances and celebrate their field. The 2006 Lake Louise meeting was Canada’s second Oxford Conference; the th previous Canadian meeting (the VII Oxford Conference) was held in 1997 at the Grandview Inn in Huntsville (Ontario) and was chaired by Richard Hughson, David Cunningham and Jim Duffin.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This excellent resource for researchers working in the area of respiratory control is full of original work presented at the 10th Oxford conference held in 2006 in Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. … Researchers and clinicians in pulmonary and sleep medicine will find this book valuable, as will respiratory physiologists, students, and trainees in pulmonary diseases. … This is a good referral resource for researchers who are actively working in the field of respiratory control." (K. P. Ravikrishnan, Doody’s Review Service, October, 2008)
