Abstract

Background: With its potentially conflicting physiological roles of both air-conditioning and body-heat recovery, the response of nasal mucosa blood flow (NMBF) to ambient cold air is not well unDerstood. Objective: To evaluate the NMBF in response to cold ambient air. Methods: The NMBF was continuously measured by laser Doppler flowmetry in nine participants exposed to different air temperatures (24°C and 4°C). Results: The NMBF significantly Decreased at 4°C compared with that at 24°C (p
