    The article presents information on the study conducted to evaluate the aging effect in female never-smokers on the perception of urge-to-cough. The study was conducted on 14 young, healthy female never-smokers from a nursing home residence. The evaluation of the urge-to-cough and cough reflex...

    Objective.--Altitude-related cough is a troublesome condition of unknown etiology. Inhaled tussive agents are used to quantify cough, and the citric acid cough threshold has been shown to fall on ascent to altitude. Cough can occur in patients taking angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors due...

    Introduction Capsaicin or citric acid cough challenges have been used as an objective measure of cough reflex sensitivity for many decades. It remains unclear how the response to these agents differs in different diseases and how the response to one cough challenge agent differs from that to...

    Background: Although cigarette smoking has been implicated as an important risk factor for the development of respiratory symptoms, the perceptional aspects of two symptoms in smokers have not been fully elucidated. Therefore, we simultaneously evaluated the cough reflex sensitivity, the...

    Background: A substantial proportion of patients with recurrent pneumonia do not have an apparent underlying condition, but they may have unknown defects in host defence mechanisms such as cough reflex. Methods: Capsaicin cough sensitivity was measured in seven patients with recurrent pneumonia...

  • The effect of mindfulness meditation on cough reflex sensitivity. E C Young // Thorax;Nov2009, Vol. 64 Issue 11, p993 

    BACKGROUND: Chronic cough is common, and medical treatment can be ineffective. Mindfulness is a psychological intervention that aims to teach moment-to-moment non-judgemental awareness of thoughts, feelings and sensations. METHOD: 30 healthy subjects and 30 patients with chronic cough were...

    The risk of aspiration pneumonia in Parkinson's disease (PD) may be increased by sensory loss in the laryngopharynx and a reduced cough reflex. This study investigated changes in chemo- and mechanosensation with age and in PD and documented cough thresholds and cortical influences over cough....

    Background: Non-pharmacological options for symptomatic management of cough are desired. Although chest wall mechanical vibration is known to ameliorate cough reflex sensitivity, the effect of mechanical vibrations on perceptions of urge-to-cough has not been studied. Therefore, we investigated...

  • Differences in motor activation of voluntary and reflex cough in humans. Lasserson, D.; Mills, K.; Arunachalam, R.; Polkey, M.; Moxham, J.; Kalra, L. // Thorax;Aug2006, Vol. 61 Issue 8, p699 

    Objectives: To study motor activation patterns of voluntary and reflex cough adjusted for cough flow rotes. Methods: Surface electromyography (EMG) and cough flow rate were measured in 10 healthy volunteers. Voluntary cough was assessed for 20 efforts in each quintile of increasing cough flow...
