Factors affecting the sensitivity of upper airway reflexes Using low inspired concentrations of ammonia vapour as an irritant chemical stimulus allows study of the upper airway in a repeatable and reliable manner. The lowest concentration of ammonia required to elicit a response is termed the threshold concentration (NH3TR). A low value of NH3TR indicates sensitive or reactive airways, whereas a higher NH3TR value represents a reduction in the sensitivity of upper airway reflexes and a depression of airway reflexes.

Anatomy of the upper airway. NP: nasopharynx; TNG: tongue; SP: soft palate; VP: velopharynx; OP: oropharynx; HP: hypopharynx; L: larynx. 6.
