Ok guys I know this is going to sound stupid, but I don't have my physio book with me at the library, is J-reflex the same as Herring bauer inflation reflex?

I do know however for a fact that J receptors are sensory nerve endings in alv wall in juxtaposition to pulm capillaries. They are stimulated when irritant chemicals are injected into pulm bld or when pulm capillaries become engorged with bld or in pulm edema(as in CHF)

thanks again ppl!
