Respiratory symptoms among glass bottle workers--cough and airways irritancy syndrome? (1/1515)

Glass bottle workers have been shown to experience an excess of respiratory symptoms. This work describes in detail the symptoms reported by a cohort of 69 symptomatic glass bottle workers. Symptoms, employment history and clinical investigations including radiology, spirometry and serial peak expiratory flow rate records were retrospectively analyzed from clinical records. The results showed a consistent syndrome of work-related eye, nose and throat irritation followed after a variable period by shortness of breath. The latent interval between starting work and first developing symptoms was typically 4 years (median = 4 yrs; range = 0-28). The interval preceding the development of dysponea was longer and much more variable (median = 16 yrs; range = 3-40). Spirometry was not markedly abnormal in the group but 57% of workers had abnormal serial peak expiratory flow rate charts. Workers in this industry experience upper and lower respiratory tract symptoms consistent with irritant exposure. The long-term functional significance of these symptoms should be formally investigated.  (+info)

Defining and analysing symptom palliation in cancer clinical trials: a deceptively difficult exercise. (2/1515)

The assessment of symptom palliation is an essential component of many treatment comparisons in clinical trials, yet an extensive literature search revealed no consensus as to its precise definition, which could embrace relief of symptoms, time to their onset, duration, degree, as well as symptom control and prevention. In an attempt to assess the importance of these aspects and to compare different methods of analysis, we used one symptom (cough) from a patient self-assessment questionnaire (the Rotterdam Symptom Checklist) in a large (>300 patient) multicentre randomized clinical trial (conducted by the Medical Research Council Lung Cancer Working Party) of palliative chemotherapy in small-cell lung cancer. The regimens compared were a two-drug regimen (2D) and a four-drug regimen (4D). No differences were seen between the regimens in time of onset of palliation or its duration. The degree of palliation was strongly related to the initial severity: 90% of the patients with moderate or severe cough at baseline reported improvement, compared with only 53% of those with mild cough. Analyses using different landmark time points gave conflicting results: the 4D regimen was superior at 1 month and at 3 months, whereas at 2 months the 2D regimen appeared superior. When improvement at any time up to 3 months was considered, the 4D regimen showed a significant benefit (4D 79%, 2D 60%, P = 0.02). These findings emphasize the need for caution in interpreting results, and the importance of working towards a standard definition of symptom palliation. The current lack of specified criteria makes analysis and interpretation of trial results difficult, and comparison across trials impossible. A standard definition of palliation for use in the analysis of clinical trials data is proposed, which takes into account aspects of onset, duration and degree of palliation, and symptom improvement, control and prevention.  (+info)

Influence of central antitussive drugs on the cough motor pattern. (3/1515)

The present study was conducted to determine the effects of administration of centrally active antitussive drugs on the cough motor pattern. Electromyograms of diaphragm and rectus abdominis muscles were recorded in anesthetized, spontaneously breathing cats. Cough was produced by mechanical stimulation of the intrathoracic trachea. Centrally acting drugs administered included codeine, morphine, dextromethorphan, baclofen, CP-99,994, and SR-48,968. Intravertebral artery administration of all drugs reduced cough number (number of coughs per stimulus trial) and rectus abdominis burst amplitude in a dose-dependent manner. Codeine, dextromethorphan, CP-99,994, SR-48,968, and baclofen had no effect on cough cycle timing (CTtot) or diaphragm amplitude during cough, even at doses that inhibited cough number by 80-90%. Morphine lengthened CTtot and inhibited diaphragm amplitude during cough, but these effects were not dose dependent. Only CP-99,994 altered the eupneic respiratory pattern. Central antitussive drugs primarily suppress cough by inhibition of expiratory motor drive and cough number. CTtot and inspiratory motor drive are relatively insensitive to the effects of these drugs. CTtot can be controlled independently from cough number.  (+info)

Cough and angiotensin II receptor antagonists: cause or confounding? (4/1515)

AIMS: Cough is one of the most frequent side effects associated with angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) but is not thought to be associated with losartan, an angiotensin II receptor antagonist (ARA). This study compares reports of cough with losartan and three ACEIs used in general practice. METHODS: Studies have been conducted for losartan, and three ACEIs enalapril, lisinopril and perindopril, using the technique of Prescription-Event Monitoring. Patients were identified using dispensed prescription data. Questionnaires were sent to patients' general practitioners 6 months after the date of first prescription. Cases of cough within the first 60 days of treatment with losartan resulting in withdrawal of the drug were followed up with additional questionnaires. Incidence rates for reports of cough were calculated. In order to reduce the impact of carry-over effects, rate ratios were calculated for first reports of cough between days 8 and 60 using losartan as the index drug. RESULTS: The cohort for each drug exceeded 9000 patients. Age and sex distributions and indications for prescribing the four drugs were similar. Cough was the most frequent reason for discontinuation of losartan and the most frequently reported event in the first month of treatment with this drug. When reports of cough between days 1-7 were excluded, rates of cough were significantly higher for the three ACEIs when compared with losartan (rate ratios 1.5, 4.8 and 5.7, all P<0.03). 101 patients had discontinued losartan due to cough. 91% of these had previously been prescribed an ACEI and 86% had previously experienced ACEI cough. CONCLUSIONS: Carry-over accounted for the observed excess of reports of cough with losartan. Rates of cough between days 8 and 60 were significantly higher for the three ACEIs compared with losartan. Confounding factors associated with comparative observational cohort studies are discussed.  (+info)

Multifunctional laryngeal motoneurons: an intracellular study in the cat. (5/1515)

We studied the patterns of membrane potential changes in laryngeal motoneurons (LMs) during vocalization, coughing, swallowing, sneezing, and the aspiration reflex in decerebrate paralyzed cats. LMs, identified by antidromic activation from the recurrent laryngeal nerve, were expiratory (ELMs) or inspiratory (ILMs) cells that depolarized during their respective phases in eupnea. During vocalization, most ELMs depolarized and most ILMs hyperpolarized. Some ILMs depolarized slightly during vocalization. During coughing, ELMs depolarized abruptly at the transition from the inspiratory to the expiratory phase. In one-third of ELMs, this depolarization persisted throughout the abdominal burst. In the remainder ("type A"), it was interrupted by a transient repolarization. ILMs exhibited a membrane potential trajectory opposite to that of type A ELMs during coughing. During swallowing, the membrane potential of ELMs decreased transiently at the onset of the hypoglossal burst and then depolarized strongly during the burst. ILMs hyperpolarized sharply at the onset of the burst and depolarized as hypoglossal activity ceased. During sneezing, ELMs and ILMs exhibited membrane potential changes similar to those of type A ELMs and ILMs during coughing. During the aspiration reflex, ELMs and ILMs exhibited bell-shaped hyperpolarization and depolarization trajectories, respectively. We conclude that central drives to LMs, consisting of complex combinations of excitation and inhibition, vary during vocalization and upper airway defensive reflexes. This study provides data for analysis of the neuronal networks that produce these various behaviors and analysis of network reorganization caused by changes in dynamic connections between the respiratory and nonrespiratory neuronal networks.  (+info)

Influence of family factors on the incidence of lower respiratory illness during the first year of life. (6/1515)

In a study of a cohort of over 2000 children born between 1963 and 1965, the incidence of bronchitis and pneumonia during their first year of life was found to be associated with several family factors. The most important determinant of respiratory illness in these infants was an attack of bronchitis or pneumonia in a sibling. The age of these siblings, and their number, also contributed to this incidence. Parental respiratory symptoms, including persistent cough and phlegm, and asthma or wheezing, as well as parental smoking habits, had lesser but nevertheless important effects. Parental smoking, however, stands out from all other factors as the one most amenable to change in seeking to prevent bronchitis and pneumonia in infants.  (+info)

Persistent cough: is it asthma? (7/1515)

The aim of this study was to determine if children in the community with persistent cough can be considered to have asthma. A validated questionnaire was given to the parents of 1245 randomly selected children aged 6-12 years. Atopy was measured with skin prick tests. Children with persistent cough had less morbidity and less atopy compared with children with wheeze. Although the syndrome commonly referred to as "cough variant asthma" could not be shown in this study, a significant number of children with persistent cough had been diagnosed as having asthma and were treated with asthma medications including inhaled corticosteroids. Studies are urgently needed to determine the appropriate treatment for children with persistent cough.  (+info)

Gastro-oesophageal reflux related cough and its response to laparoscopic fundoplication. (8/1515)

BACKGROUND: This study was designed to determine prospectively the rate of cough before and after laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication performed for the control of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease. METHODS: One hundred and ninety five consecutive patients (76 men) of mean (SD) age 46.9 (14.1) years with proven gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, who were either on long term omeprazole (n = 187) or who had not responded to a trial of omeprazole (n = 8), took part in the study which was carried out in a university teaching hospital that included a regional respiratory referral centre. Patients underwent oesophageal manometry, 24 hour oesophageal pH testing, and symptom score evaluation by an independent observer before and six months after laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication. RESULTS: One hundred and thirty three patients presented with reflux symptoms and 62 with respiratory symptoms; 68% of patients complained of cough before surgery (86% with respiratory symptoms, 60% with gastrointestinal symptoms). The percentage reflux time in 24 hours fell significantly (p < 0.0001) from a mean (SD) of 9.38 (10.99)% to 1.22 (2.92)%, lower oesophageal sphincter tone rose significantly (p < 0.0001) from a mean (SD) of 7.71 (5.90) mm Hg to 21.74 (10.84) mm Hg, and the cough score fell from a median value of 8.0 (IQR 12.0) to 0 (IQR 3) following surgery. Of the patients with cough, 51% were cough free after surgery and 31% improved. The patients with respiratory symptoms had a higher cough score before (median 12.0 (IQR 5.5) versus 4.0 (IQR 8.75), p < 0.0001) and after surgery (median 1 (7.5) versus 0.0 (IQR 1.0), p = 0.0045) than those with gastrointestinal symptoms. CONCLUSIONS: Patients who present to gastroenterologists with severe reflux commonly complain of cough. Laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication is effective in the control of cough in patients with gastro-oesophageal reflux disease, with or without primary respiratory disease.  (+info)

Background Cough variant Asthma (CVA) is defined as chronic cough without wheezing, and may be precursor of typical asthma. Thus, the diagnosis of CVA and early intervention can partly inhibit asthma progression.This study aimed to evaluate the role of spirometry in diagniosis of Cough variant Asthma in Iranian Children. Materials and Methods This descriptive observational study included a total of 73 patients, who were referred to the specialized lung clinic of Tabriz Pediatric Center, Tabriz city, Iran. Patients were divided into two groups with classic asthma (n=37) and cough variant asthma (n=36) and basic spirometry parameters such as FEV1, FVC, FEV1/FVC, FEF 25-75% and PEF were measured, and the spirometry findings of each individual were measured based on the European Respiratory Society (ERS) criteria. Results The mean of FEV1 and FVC in the classic asthma group were 83.45 ± 20.49% and 86.45 ± 21.57%, respectively; and in the cough variant asthma group were 87.44 ± 13.99% and 86.8 ± 14.71%,
INTRODUCTION: Acute cough has a significant impact on physical and psychosocial health and is associated with an impaired quality of life (QOL). The Leicester Cough Questionnaire (LCQ) is a validated cough-related health status questionnaire designed for patients with chronic cough. The purpose of this study was to validate the LCQ for the assessment of health related QOL in patients with acute cough and determine the clinical minimal important difference (MID). METHODS: 10 subjects with cough due to acute upper respiratory tract infection underwent focused interviews to investigate the face validity of the LCQ. The LCQ was also evaluated by a multidisciplinary team. 30 subjects completed the revised LCQ-acute and a cough visual analogue score (VAS: 0-100 mm) within one week of onset of cough and again |2 weeks later and at resolution of cough. The concurrent validity, internal reliability, repeatability and responsiveness of the LCQ-acute were also assessed. Patients also completed a Global Rating of
AIMS: Unexplained chronic cough is a common condition with no satisfactory treatments. Previous work has suggested that cough may be linked to neutrophilic airway inflammation. This study tested the hypothesis that long-term low-dose erythromycin reduces the induced sputum neutrophil count and 24 h cough frequency in patients with unexplained chronic cough. METHODS: 30 patients with an unexplained chronic cough lasting more than 8 weeks were randomly assigned to take 250 mg erythromycin once daily (n=15) or placebo (n=15) for 12 weeks in a double-blind parallel group study. Cough frequency, cough reflex sensitivity and cough severity were assessed at baseline, 6, 12 and 24 weeks. The primary outcome measure was change in 24 h cough frequency at 12 weeks. RESULTS: There was no difference in the change in cough frequency between the erythromycin and placebo groups at 12 weeks (mean difference in fold change 1.1; 95% CI 0.7 to 1.5; p=0.585) or at other times. There was a statistically significant between
To the Editor:. Chronic cough is a difficult clinical problem, partly because there is an absence of well-validated means to assess cough [1, 2]. We have previously reported that the semi-automated computerised Leicester Cough Monitor detects cough accurately over 6 h and that cough frequency is increased in patients with chronic cough compared to controls [3, 4]. There remains uncertainty on the performance of the system over 24 h and across the range of expected cough frequency in larger populations. We set out to address these questions in healthy adult volunteers and adult volunteers with respiratory disease.. 44 healthy volunteers were recruited from those responding to a poster advertisement. All reported no current respiratory symptoms, were nonsmokers with a ,5 pack-yr past smoking history and had normal spirometric values, methacholine airway responsiveness and induced sputum inflammatory cell counts. 78 patients with respiratory disease were recruited from respiratory clinics. The ...

Capsaicin has been used as a tussive agent in studies in adults to determine cough receptor sensitivity. The aim of this study was to determine the tolerance, repeatability and influence of inspiratory flow on the capsaicin cough receptor sensitivity test in children. Thirty children (mean age 11 yrs; range 6-16 yrs) were tested on two different days, to determine the lowest concentration of capsaicin required to stimulate two or more coughs (cough threshold (Cth)), 2-4 coughs (C2), and five or more coughs (C5). Capsaicin was nebulized through a dosimeter, with an arrangement that allowed the subjects to visualize and regulate their inspiratory flow. Using a constant inspiratory flow of 20 L x min(-1), tests were reproducible for C2, C5 and Cth (doubling dose changes of 1.13, 1.03 and 1.08, respectively). An increase in the inspiratory flow from 20 to 60 L x min(-1) significantly increased C2 (19.5 to 46.8 microM; p=0.016) and C5 (46.8 to 128.8 microM; p=0.008). We conclude that in children, the ...
Mercks Gefapixant Significantly Decreased Cough Frequency Compared to Placebo in Patients with Refractory or Unexplained Chronic Cough
The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice talks about cough frequency patterns differ between patients with and without asthma.
About Coughs. Coughs are incredibly common. Its one of the most common reasons for people to come and see their GP. A cough is a reflex action to clear your airways of mucus and irritants, foreign particles and microbes. Coughs may be dry or chesty. Most coughs clear up within two weeks.. Dry or chesty cough. Dry coughs are usually felt in the back of the throat as a tickle that sets off the coughing. It happens when the throat and upper airways become inflamed (swollen). It is closely related to tickly coughs and often, these terms are used interchangeably. Both dry coughs and tickly coughs are known as non-productive coughs (no phlegm), as distinct from chesty coughs where mucus is produced. A dry cough is most often the result of infection by cold and flu viruses because your brain thinks the inflammation in your throat and upper airways is a foreign object and tries to remove it by coughing. It can also be triggered by atmospheric pollutants (such as cigarette smoke) irritating your ...
Both chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) frequently lead to a chronic cough that negatively impacts the quality of life (QOL) for patients and those around them. This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial to determine whether interferon-alpha, delivered in low doses via orally dissolving lozenges given 3 times per day for 4 weeks, can reduce the frequency and severity of chronic cough in patients with COPD or IPF. Cough frequency will be assessed via 24-hour digital audio recordings made prior to entry, and at weeks 2 and 4 of treatment. Cough severity will be assessed via a 100-mm visual analog scale questionnaire completed by the subject prior to entry and then weekly during treatment. Subjects will also complete questionnaires regarding cough frequency, duration and intensity, QOL, dyspnea, and antitussive medication usage weekly during treatment. All questionnaires will be repeated weekly during a 4-week post-treatment ...

In the current study, 37.5% of the patients had non-productive cough and of these patients, 46.6% were admitted to hospital with cough at least once before diagnosis of pSS. LCQ score was 13.2±3.1. LCQ is divided into three domains: physical, psychological, and social. There was no significant difference between domains of LCQ. Depression was more common in patients with chronic cough. Furthermore, there was a significant delay in the diagnosis of pSS in patients with chronic cough. This may have resulted from the nature of symptoms in these patients such as dryness of the mouth and eyes and cough. These complaints are relatively non-specific and the patients may consult with clinics that do not deal with rheumatological disorders. Cough is an important symptom and is the main reason to seek medical attention for patients with lung diseases.(13) Chronic cough affects approximately 10% of the adult population and suffering from chronic cough can affect the quality of life negatively. The ...
Cough, the most important airways defensive mechanism is modulated by many afferent inputs either from respiratory tussigenic areas, but also by afferent drive from other organs. In animal models, modulation of cough by nasal afferent inputs can either facilitate or inhibit the cough response, depending on the type of trigeminal afferents stimulated. In this study we addressed the question of possible bidirectional modulation of cough response in human healthy volunteers by nasal challenges with TRPA1 and TRPM8 agonists respectively. After nasal challenges with isocyanate (AITC), cinnamaldehyde, (−) menthol and (+) menthol (all 10-3 M) nasal symptom score, cough threshold (C2), urge to cough (Cu) and cumulative cough response were measured). Nasal challenges with TRPA1 relevant agonists induced considerable nasal symptoms, significantly enhanced urge to cough (p|0.05) but no statistically significant modulation of the C2 and cumulative cough response. In contrast, both TRPM8 agonists administered to

Chronic unexplained cough triggered by environmental irritants is characterized by increased cough reflex sensitivity, which can be demonstrated by means of inhaled capsaicin. Topical capsaicin can be used to improve non-allergic rhinitis and intestinal hypersensitivity and to reduce neuropathic pain. Objectives: We established whether an oral intake of natural capsaicin (chilli) could desensitize the cough reflex and improve unexplained coughing. Methods: Twenty-four patients with irritant-induced, unexplained chronic cough and 15 controls were included in the study. For 4 weeks, the participants took capsules with pure capsaicin, and for 4 weeks, they took placebo capsules. The protocol was crossover, randomized, and double blind. Cough sensitivity during the study was evaluated by a standardized capsaicin inhalation cough test that assessed the capsaicin concentration required to reach two coughs (C2) and five coughs (C5). Participants were also administered questionnaires on cough and ...
Dog cough is one of the most common canine symptoms. It is also a symptom of a wide range of conditions, so determining what is causing your dog to cough can be challenging. Dog cough can be triggered by something as simple as inhaling an irritant such as smoke, pollen or dust or it can be caused by something as serious as heart disease. The first step in treating dog cough is to determine the source. Causes of Dog Cough Besides irritants such as smoke, pollen or house dust, some common causes of dog cough include insect bites, dog allergies, dog parasites or worms, fungus disease, heartworm disease, respiratory infection, and kennel cough or tracheobronchitis. Much like humans, the sound of the cough and associated symptoms is a great indicator of what the problem might be. A dry cough, for example, can be the result of kennel cough, while a moist cough can come from a buildup of fluid in the throat or airways in the dogs body. If your dog has a deep, wheezy cough, he could have bronchitis. ...

A management pathway for chronic cough in childhood has been proposed by Chang and colleagues and is currently being evaluated by multicenter randomized controlled clinical trial. If validated it may become a standard for the approach to children with a chronic cough.. If you are able to confirm that the patient has Chronic Cough, what treatment should be initiated?. Treatment of Chronic Cough is directed at the etiology when established. It is important to recognize that in many cases the cause may be multifactoral: patients with asthma often have post nasal drip, for example; and habit cough can develop in the face of post-infectious cough and asthma.. While a complete discussion of the treatment of every possible cause of cough is beyond the scope of this section, a review of some highlights for certain entities follows:. Asthma.

There will be an option open to participants, who respond to treatment by meeting pre-determined criteria, to remain in the study for an additional 9 months or for a total of 54 weeks ...
Chronic or recurrent cough is extremely common in young children and the management of cough during childhood constitutes a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge for the general practitioner and the pulmonary specialist. The differential diagnosis encompasses a wide range of pathology, however in most instances clinical and laboratory investigations do not identify a specific cause. Usually the pressing question to the clinician is whether this common symptom is an expression of asthma (cough variant asthma). Recent epidemiological, clinical and laboratory evidence suggests that cough without wheeze most likely is not asthma. Cough and bronchoconstriction are probably mediated via two separate pathways that may be activated simultaneously or separately and can be selectively inhibited. There is little room for non-etiologic pharmacological treatment of cough. The present review discusses the definition, epidemiology, diagnostic approach and treatment of chronic and recurrent cough in children. The
The bodys natural reflex reaction to get rid of mucus, trapped organisms, and foreign material from the lungs and throat is by coughing. There are 2 types of cough, one is productive cough and the other is termed as non-productive cough. In productive cough, the lungs are filled with mucus and one needs to cough up the phlegm. In non-productive cough, mucus is not produced and one suffers from dry cough. One may suffer from either chronic or acute cough. There are several causes of cough, like asthma, allergies, inflammation of the larynx or pharynx, bacterial respiratory infection, smoking, inhalation of irritants, changes in weather, etc. In the following paragraphs, we shall cover some remedies that will help you get rid of this annoying condition ...
Dogs Cough. By Admin. Why dogs cough? Coughing in dogs in a common problem. All dogs that cough do not have a serious illness. A dog that coughs can have a sore throat. A canine cough is one of your dogs best defense mechanisms. Any irritation of the breathing tubes will trigger a cough reflex in dogs. A violent rush of air cleans material from the breathing tubes and the lungs. Pollution and pollens in the air can irritate the respiratory system.. If the dog cough is accompanied by fever, weight loss, difficulty breathing, lethargy, blue gums and tongue, with a history of heart disease, heart murmur, or a malignant tumor, you should call your vet immediately.. If your dog is coughing, it could have canine influenza which is commonly called dog flu.. Tracheobronchitis or dog kennel cough causes a dog dry cough that is unproductive and sounds serious. Kennel cough is a viral disease that is highly contagious among dogs. Kennel cough causes the dog to gag after the coughing spasm and bring up a ...
Although chronic cough in adults (cough lasting longer than eight weeks) can be caused by many etiologies, four conditions account for most cases: upper airway cough syndrome, gastroesophageal reflux disease/laryngopharyngeal reflux disease, asthma, and nonasthmatic eosinophilic bronchitis. Patients should be evaluated clinically (with spirometry, if indicated), and empiric treatment should be initiated. Other potential causes include angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor use, environmental triggers, tobacco use, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and obstructive sleep apnea. Chest radiography can rule out concerning infectious, inflammatory, and malignant thoracic conditions. Patients with refractory chronic cough may warrant referral to a pulmonologist or otolaryngologist in addition to a trial of gabapentin, pregabalin, and/or speech therapy. In children, cough is considered chronic if present for more than four weeks. In children six to 14 years of age, it is most commonly caused by asthma,
Upper Airway Cough Syndrome (UACS). This includes all nasopharyngeal conditions (including allergic rhinitis (AR), rhinosinusitis, and laryngopharyngitis) that may be associated with post-nasal drip and subtle sensation of irritation of secretions in the back of the throat and the upper airways that present with a cough as the only symptom. Throat examination may reveal signs of pharyngitis and cobble-stone appearance. These conditions can be silent (no symptoms besides a cough) in up to 20% of cases. Because of disease chronicity, it is likely that, over time, patients will become tolerant of other symptoms, which are not as bothersome as a cough. The diagnosis of silent UACS can reliably be made only after patients show significant improvement with prescribed treatment directed to suggestive features in history, physical examination, or laboratory testing.[3]. Cough-Variant Asthma(C-VA). A cough can be the only manifestation of asthma. Unlike silent UACS, the diagnosis of C-VA can be confirmed ...
A cough that is more noticeable when your child is lying down is usually caused by mucus running down the back of the throat (post-nasal drip) from an upper respiratory infection, such as a cold, sinusitis, or allergy. A child usually has a runny or stuffy nose, may be irritable, and may have a fever. Home treatment is usually all that is needed to provide relief for this type of cough.. A cough during the night that sounds like a barking seal may be a sign of croup. Your child may sound hoarse with a high-pitched sound (stridor) when breathing in. Home treatment may be all that is needed in most cases. But a barking cough that continues through the day or occurs with difficulty breathing can be more serious.. A child may cough in response to emotional issues (psychogenic cough). This type of cough is present without other symptoms.. Any cough in a baby younger than 3 months, even without other symptoms, needs to be taken seriously. If the cough occurs with a change in feeding habits or ...

Cough due to upper respiratory tract infections (URIs) is one of the most frequent complaints encountered by pediatric health-care providers, and one of the most disruptive symptoms for children and families. Despite the frequency of URIs, there is limited evidence to support the few therapeutic agents currently available in the United States (US) to treat acute cough due to URI. Published, well-designed, contemporary research supporting the efficacy of narcotics (codeine, hydrocodone) and US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved over-the-counter (OTC) oral antitussives and expectorants (dextromethorphan, diphenhydramine, chlophedianol, and guaifenesin) is absent for URI-associated pediatric cough. Alternatively, honey and topically applied vapor rubs may be effective antitussives.
Cough is a natural process that protects the airway. Cough can occur spontaneously or voluntarily. It is considered chronic when it is present for longer than 4 weeks in children or 8 weeks in adults. In both, chronic cough causes patient distress and increased healthcare utilization. Etiologies of pediatric chronic cough include asthma, protracted bacterial bronchitis, tracheomalacia, habit cough, and various systemic disorders. While some diagnoses are identifiable by careful history alone, others require testing guided by specific pointers. Flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy has been an important tool to identify etiologies of chronic cough that were not otherwise apparent. In adults, asthma and bronchitis are well-defined etiologies of chronic cough, but much chronic cough in adults is largely a conundrum. Reviews of adult chronic cough report that at least 40% of adults with chronic cough have no medical explanation. Gastroesophageal reflux and upper airway cough syndrome (a.k.a. post-nasal ...
Cough is a common reason for pediatric outpatient visits. Cough as a manifestation of respiratory disease can range from minor upper respiratory tract infections to serious conditions such as bronchiectasis. Acute cough in children is mostly caused by upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs). Chronic cough, defined as daily cough of at least 4 weeks in duration, (1) can be associated with an underlying serious disorder and, hence, requires systematic and thorough clinical evaluation. There is high-quality evidence that a systematic approach to the management of chronic cough in children using pediatric-specific cough algorithms improves clinical outcomes. (1) Treatment of cough should be based on the etiology. Because cough is a common presenting complaint, pediatricians must become familiar with the initial evaluation and management of children with cough to establish a diagnosis and determine appropriate therapy. ...
Pneumonia and asthma are the common diseases in pediatric population. The diseases share some similarities of symptoms that make them difficult to separate without the proper diagnostic tools. The majority of pneumonia cases occur in the third world countries wherein even the basic diagnostic tools (e.g.: x-ray) are extremely rare. In these countries, the WHO recommends using rapid breathing and chest in-drawing as approach to diagnose pneumonia in children with cough. As the results, many asthma patients were misdiagnosed as pneumonia and prescribed for unnecessary antibiotic treatment. In this study, we propose a cough sound analysis based method to differentiate pneumonia from asthma. Cough is the major symptom of pneumonia and asthma. Past studies showed the acoustic of cough sounds may carry important information related with the diseases. However, there were no attempts to use cough sounds to separate pneumonia and asthma in pediatric population. Our method extracted sound features such as ...
1. Ginger. Ayurvedic medicine praises gingers ability to boost the immune system by warming the body so it can break down the accumulation of toxins in the organs. Ginger also has antibacterial properties. It cleans the lymphatic system, preventing the accumulation of toxins that make us susceptible to infections, especially in the respiratory system. (16). 2. Raw Honey. There are many health benefits of raw honey, including its ability to treat coughs just as effectively as over-the-counter commercial cough syrups. Increasing evidence shows that a single dose of honey can reduce mucus secretion and coughs. (17) To help relieve whooping cough symptoms, anyone over the age of one should take 1 to 2 teaspoons of raw honey at bedtime.. 3. Turmeric. It can be argued that turmeric is the most powerful herb on the planet at fighting and potentially reversing disease. Turmeric can be used to reduce inflammation and ease pain. Unlike so many over-the-counter pain medications, turmeric has relatively no ...
1. Twelve non-smoking subjects inhaled capsaicin at three different inspiratory flow rates: 50, 100 and 150 litres/min. Capsaicin was delivered by a breath-actuated dosimeter; inhalations consisted of 0.21-13.6 nmol of capsaicin in doubling amounts given in random order.. 2. The mean number of coughs per challenge decreased with increasing inspiratory flow rate. The difference in cough numbers were significant: 7.7 (95% confidence interval 2.5-12.8) for 50 versus 100 litres/min and 10.9 (95% confidence interval 5.0-16.9) for 100 versus 150 litres/min.. 3. On a separate day, a cough threshold was measured by giving increasing doses of citric acid that were inhaled at 50 litres/min. There was a positive correlation between the sensitivity to capsaicin and the cough threshold to citric acid (r = 0.69, P = 0.01), and also between the cough latencies (r = 0.67, P = 0.02).. 4. The negative relationship between the cough response and the inspiratory flow rate may be caused by increased laryngeal ...
Cough is one of the most important defensive reflexes. However, extensive non- productive cough is a harmful mechanism leading to the damage of human airways. Cough is initiated by activation of vagal afferents in the airways. The site of their convergence is particularly the nucleus of the solitary.... Full description. ...
Many kennels, groomers, doggy daycares, and training facilities these days require dogs to be vaccinated for kennel cough before they are allowed to attend. But, just what is kennel cough, and how safe is the vaccine? Kennel cough is a viral infection that passes between dogs, especially in stressful environments. It typically takes about 8-10 days after exposure for symptoms to develop, including sneezing, runny eyes or nose, and of course, a dry horrible-sounding cough. While kennel cough certainly sounds scary because of its characteristic dry, hacking cough, it is a mild illness that can be easily treated with gentle, natural remedies. There are many resources to consult on treating kennel cough at home. These treatments typically include boosting the dogs immune system and gently soothing its cough. Kennel cough is a self-limiting disease, which means that in all but a few rare cases, the illness will clear up on its own even without treatment. Because kennel cough has a tendency to ...

Upper airway diseases (e.g. allergic rhinitis (AR)) are one of most common causes of chronic cough in subjects with negative X-ray finding. In UACS (upper airway cough syndrome), cough is strongly associated with the ongoing nasal inflammation. Effective treatment of nasal inflammation may lead to down regulation of pathologically enhanced chronic cough. Histamine plays a critical role in upper airway diseases. All known histamine receptors (H1R, H2R, H3R, and H4R) have been demonstrated in the nasal mucosa. Old generation of antihistamines (inverse agonists of H1R) are empirically used in treatment of UACS, although their clinical use is limited by their serious adverse effects. The aim of our study was to ascertain the effect of H3R selective agonist imetit - known to suppress release of substance P from afferent nerves in allergic nasal inflammation on cough and symptoms of AR in an animal model. ...
In the Pascal Beuret et al. study,9 which included ICU patients who had successfully passed the spontaneous breathing trial, the optimal cough PEF value to predict extubation failure was ,35 L/min.. In patients unable to cooperate voluntarily cough PEF cannot be evaluated. Involuntary cough may be assessed either by instilling normal saline2 or by advancing a suctioning catheter through the patients tracheostomy tube to induce a cough.10 Although not compared directly two different studies using voluntary11 and involuntary cough PEF2 have come out with approximately the same cut-off point (60 versus 58.5 L/min respectively). In the Salam et al. study11 Cough PEFs were measured in all but five patients who were unable to understand instructions or could not attempt a cough. For the remaining 83 patients who attempted to cough, the Cough PEFs ranged from 10 to 200 L/min; 41% of the measurements were 60 L/min or less.. The study of Smailes12 demonstrated that patients with a cough PEF of ≤60 ...
Because studies have inconsistently targeted the multiple cardinal symptoms of the common cold (e.g., rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, postnasal discharge, throat clearing, cough), the evidence on how to best treat any one symptom is not strong. Therefore, the Duke Center for Clinical Health Policy Research (which conducted an evidence-based review of the literature for the ACCP guideline committee) limited its review to cough.4 Clinically, there are several reasons why it makes sense to target cough caused by the common cold: the common cold, which is the most prevalent condition in humans, is accompanied by cough in up to 83 percent of persons5; the common cold is the most prevalent cause of acute cough6; and cough is the most common complaint seen by primary care physicians in the ambulatory setting in the United States,7 probably because cough adversely affects health-related quality of life.6. Although acute cough from the common cold is usually transient and minor, it may be life threatening ...
Coughs are caused by an irritation in the lining of the throat and lungs. This irritation causes a build up of mucus. When you arent feeling well, the lining of your throat and lungs become more sensitive. Many things can annoy your already irritated and tender lining, including cold air, eating and drinking, and even just breathing. When you cough, it may tickle or feel dry and hacking and may cause you to clear your throat. Some coughs are caused by mucus buildup in your throat or lungs. After a bout of coughing, you usually produce a ball of phlegm. They may cause your lungs to rattle and may sound like barking. This type of cough can become spasmodic as the body works to eliminate mucus. Taking cough drops can reduce your coughing, but wont cure your cough; they only suppress the bodys natural healing process.. The best ways to heal your cough is to soothe irritated areas and give the mucus a way to escape your body. Some good herbal remedies for colds with coughs will include licorice, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effect of viral upper respiratory tract infection on cough reflex sensitivity. AU - Dicpinigaitis, Peter Vytautas. PY - 2014/10/1. Y1 - 2014/10/1. N2 - Acute viral upper respiratory tract infection (URI; common cold) is among the most common medical conditions affecting man, with cough being a typical feature of the associated syndrome. Studies employing capsaicin inhalation challenge to measure cough reflex sensitivity have demonstrated a transient tussive hyperresponsiveness induced by URI that reverts to normal by 4-8 weeks post infection. Mechanisms proposed to explain the induction of cough by URI include a number of infection-associated airway effects, such as enhanced release of cytokines, neurotransmitters, and leukotrienes; increased neural receptor levels; reduced activity of neutral endopeptidases; transient modulation of afferent neural activity; mucus hypersecretion; and, possibly, effects on cholinergic motor pathways. Recent studies evaluating urge-to-cough (UTC), ...
BACKGROUND--To evaluate the effect of inhaled beta 2 adrenergic agonists on the sensitivity of airway cough receptors, the effect of inhaled procaterol on cough induced by aerosolised capsaicin, a stimulant of C fibres, was studied in patients with asthma or chronic bronchitis and in normal subjects. METHOD--Eleven patients with asthma and 10 with chronic bronchitis and 14 normal subjects participated. Increasing concentrations of capsaicin solution were inhaled for 15 seconds by tidal breathing through the mouth at one minute intervals until five or more coughs were elicited, before and 30 minutes after inhalation of 20 micrograms procaterol or placebo (freon gas alone) through a metered dose inhaler. Cough threshold was defined as the lowest concentration of capsaicin that elicited five or more coughs. To evaluate the bronchodilator effect of procaterol and the bronchoconstrictor effect of inhaled capsaicin, forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) was measured before and one minute after ...
Home Care Advice for Cough:. 1. Reassurance:. * Coughs are a normal part of a cold. * Coughing up mucus is very important for protecting the lungs from pneumonia. * We want to encourage a productive cough, not turn it off. 2. Homemade Cough Medicine:. • Goal: Reduce the irritation or tickle in the throat that triggers a dry cough. * Child Aged 3 Months to 1 Year: Give warm, clear fluids (eg, warm water, apple juice) to treat the cough. Amount: 1 to 3 teaspoons (5 to 15 mL) 4 times per day when coughing. Avoid honey until 1 year of age.. * Child Aged 1 Year and Older: Use HONEY, ½ to 1 teaspoon (2 to 5 mL), as needed as a homemade cough medicine. It can thin the secretions and loosen the cough. (If not available, you can use corn syrup). * Child Aged 6 Years and Older: Use COUGH DROPS to coat the irritated throat. (If not available, you can use hard candy). 3. Nonprescription Cough Medicine (Dextromethorphan):. * Nonprescription cough medicines are NOT recommended (Reason: no proven benefit ...
Patients with multiple chemical sensitivity and eczema patients with airway symptoms elicited by odorous chemicals have enhanced cough reflex to capsaicin when applying the tidal breathing method. The aims of the present study were to test whether the capsaicin induced cough reflex was enhanced when applying the single breath inhalation method in similar groups of patients with symptoms related to odorous chemicals e.g. other persons wearing of perfume; and to investigate to what extent the reporting of lower airway symptoms influenced the cough reflex. Sixteen patients fulfilling Cullens criteria for multiple chemical sensitivity and 15 eczema patients with airway symptoms elicited by odorous chemicals were compared with 29 age-matched, healthy controls. We measured C5--the capsaicin concentration causing five coughs or more--using the single breath inhalation test. No difference was found between groups in age, body mass index or pulmonary function. The median C5 were 129 micromol/L (control group),

Postnasal drip is a condition characterized by production of excess mucus secretion by the nasal mucous membrane and leading to number of annoying symptoms like cough, irritation in the throat and a constant urge to clear the throat. It is also known as upper airway cough syndrome. Severe cases of postnasal drip may lead to serious types of ear infection.. An allergy is the most common cause associated with postnasal drip; however, other causes like cold, flu and foreign objects impacted in the nasal cavity may also be responsible. Treatment options include management of the underlying problem along with relieving of symptoms by drugs like antihistamines and nasal decongestants.. ...
Cough caused by URTI can be a very troublesome symptom for a child, and for a health professional, not to offer any treatment may seem unacceptable to many parents and lay people. However, as this systematic review shows, there is very little evidence to suggest that OTC cough medicines are effective. For this reason, we cannot recommend these as first line treatment for acute cough. It is, however, vital that paediatricians, GPs, and other health care workers take the symptoms of acute cough seriously, taking a careful history and performing a thorough physical examination to search for possible underlying diagnoses. If a viral URTI seems the most likely diagnosis, the treatment options and the lack of evidence for the effectiveness of OTC cough medicines should be discussed carefully with parents. Whether a child is being treated or not, parents should always be offered a further appointment in case the cough persists, which may suggest the possibility of another underlying condition.. At ...

For coughs with mucus. If we want a temporary relief, try applying VapoRubs. It should be applied on the neck for 20 minutes. If we want to loosen mucus, we should consider expectorant. Expectorants are sold over the counter. After taking expectorants, lets try to cough and spit mucus or phlegm as much as possible. Furthermore, if we want to feel better, lets consider inhaling moisture with the use of humidifiers.. It is essential that we get a lot of sleep and more importantly, we should drink a lot of water. We should avoid carbonated drinks and citrus juices to avoid throat irritation.. For dry coughs. Dry cough does not produce phlegm or mucus. If we are suffering from this, we should purchase cough syrups. Aside from cough syrups, we can try brewing tea (thyme tea and marshmallow tea). We can also make homemade syrups. If we have honey and lemon juice, we can make a syrup that can help coat the throat so we can cough the mucus.. When to call the doctor. If the cough lingers for more than ...
Cough and airway eosinophilic inflammation has not been highlighted in hypereosinophilic syndrome (HES). We report 2 further cases and reviewed the clinical features and treatment of HES present with cough from the literature. Both cases were middle age male, presenting with chronic cough, airway eosinophilic inflammation and hyper eosinophilia who have been previous misdiagnosed as cough-variant asthma and failed anti-asthma treatment. PDGFRA fusion gene was confirmed in one case, but not in the other case. Both had evidence of myeloproliferative features. The tyrosine kinase inhibitor, imatinib, resulted in complete resolution of eosinophilia and cough. By searching PubMed, we found 8 HES cohorts of 411 cases between 1975 and 2013, where the incidence of cough was 23.11%. Sixteen case reports of HES presented with cough as predominant or sole symptom, with nine male patients with positive PDGFRA fusion gene, who responded well to imatinib. Six of seven patients, who tested negative for the PDGFRA,

Principal Investigator: Shonna Yin MD, MS. Project Duration: 9/30/15-9/29/18. Regulatory Science Challenge. One in ten U.S. children are exposed to cough and cold medications in a given week. Parent confusion about the appropriate use of cough and cold medications is one contributor to the ,20,000 U.S. poison control center calls per year attributed to therapeutic errors, or errors in management, involving cough and cold medications. Approximately 7000 annual pediatric emergency department visits involve cough and cold medications in young children. Children less than 6 years old, who use liquid formulations, are at a particularly high risk. Suboptimally designed product containers or carton labeling and packaging have been specifically cited as important factors in medication errors and adverse events. The ability to understand instructions for proper administration of pediatric cough and cold medications is an important health literacy and patient safety concern. As the majority of cough and ...
A public health physician, Dr Shallom Oni, has advised Nigerians with over weeks cough to seek medical attention. Oni, at the unveiling of Herbacough cough syrup made by Dexa Medica, in Lagos said more awareness was needed for people to know when to stop using medication and when they should visit the hospital for a test. It is important that people are enlightened so that they wont just keep on loading themselves with cough syrups for two or three weeks. Every Nigerian is advised to visit a doctor for a proper check if they have a prolonged cough. Youve been taking cough syrup and other medication and you are not getting relived, and the cough seems to be recurring, you need to see a doctor if it persists so that you can be screened. This is vital to ensure that it is not a cough that has to do with some other chronic illnesses. There is the need to raise the awareness on this so that people will not just be using cough syrups for the wrong ailment. The government is trying on the ...
In an interview with The Daily Mail, Professor Alyn Morice, who is the head of cardiovascular and respiratory studies at the University of Hull, said that chocolate can calm coughs. This may sound too good to be true, especially for chocolate lovers.. Professor Morice, who is also a founding member of the International Society for the Study of Cough, is an independent clinician and she has spent several years studying the mechanism of cough. Professor Morice explained that while this sounds unbelievable, it is a fact that is backed by verified scientific data.. The professor referenced a European study on over-the-counter (OTC) cough remedies. In the study, researchers found that patients who took a new medicine with cocoa had a significant improvement in their cough and sleeplessness after only two days, unlike the participants who took standard cough syrup.. Professor Morice added that there are other studies which prove that chocolate can help calm coughs.. Prior to the European study, ...
The Coughing action is a sudden explosion of air from your lungs, which may produce mucus and phlegm. Productive Cough produces phlegm. If you get cold or a flu type of cough, you should not take any medications unless it keeps you awake at night.. Another type of Cough is: unproductive that are dry hacks that irritate your throat. This type of cough appears at the end of the cold or when you have been exposed to an irritant such as smoke or dust. There are 2 types of Cough medications which exist such as Expectorants and Suppressants. The expectorants active ingredients are Quaifenesin, which thins your mucus to make it easier to cough up, something you may also do by drinking plenty of water, tea and fruit juice. While an ingredient Quaifenesin has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), its effectiveness has not been conclusively demonstrated in clinical trials. Other type of Cough medicine includes Suppressants such as Diphenhydramine, Codeine, or Dextromethorphan. Each of ...

Today, the Irish Medicines Board (IMB) recommended that over-the-counter cough and cold medicines should no longer be sold for Under 6s. You can read the full news bulletin here: IMB gives new advice for use of cough and cold medicines in children. I was quite taken aback by the news, and even a little bit miffed by it when I heard it first. My initial reaction was Well what are we supposed to give Little Man now - and for the next four years! - when he has a cough or a cold??? But then I thought about it and I realised that we havent actually been using specific cough and cold medications for Little Man for quite a while. Through trial and error, we discovered that a spoonful of honey was far more effective at soothing a cough for Little Man than the over-the-counter cough medicine available for his age group. (We had been trying Nelsons Sootha cough syrup, but Little Man didnt like taking it, and it didnt seem to give him any relief.). According to the IMB press release, the reason ...

By Stephanie Clue [1]. BELLEVILLE - A case of pertussis [2], or whooping cough, was reported in a Belleville school last week by Hastings and Prince Edward [3] health officials.. The health unit says no other cases have been reported in city schools. All students at the school affected - which the health unit has declined to identify, citing confidentiality issues - were informed of what the symptoms of whooping cough are.. Last May, several cases of whooping cough were reported in Bancroft [4].. Pertussis is a highly contagious virus spread by droplets in the air when someone who carries it coughs or sneezes.. Its most contagious in the first two weeks after the coughing starts. The cough can become more frequent and can be identified by a high-pitched whooping sound when the person with the virus is trying to breathe in.. One person with the illness could infect between 12 and 16 people at once, according to Bill Sherlock, the communicable-disease program manager at the health ...
People who have a post nasal drip cough should realize their condition is now being called upper airway cough syndrome (UACS). This is a situation where a person has a cough for a long period of time with nasal congestion. It is often caused by mucus dripping down the back of their throat.

UACS can cause a person to have a hoarse voice as well as wake up in the morning with something noticeable in the back of their throat. UACS can result from a person having an allergic or a nonallergic reaction to something in their environment. It could also be the result of sinusitis. ...
Due to the small numbers of trials in each category, the limited quantitative data available and the marked differences between trials in terms of participants, interventions and outcome measurement, we felt that pooling of the results was inappropriate.. We included 29 trials (19 in adults, 10 in children) involving 4835 people (3799 adults and 1036 children). All studies were placebo-controlled RCTs. However, assessment of the risk of bias of the included studies was limited by poor reporting, particularly for the earlier studies.. In the adult studies, six trials compared antitussives with placebo and had variable results. Three trials compared the expectorant guaifenesin with placebo; one indicated significant benefit, whereas the other two did not. One trial found that a mucolytic reduced cough frequency and symptom scores. Two studies examined antihistamine-decongestant combinations and found conflicting results. Four studies compared other combinations of drugs with placebo and indicated ...

PURPOSE We sought to determine the prevalence of airway obstruction and bronchodilator responsiveness in adults consulting for acute cough in primary care. METHODS Family physicians recruited 3,105 adult patients with acute cough (28 days or shorter) attending primary care practices in 12 European countries. After exclusion of patients with preexisting physician-diagnosed asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), we undertook complete case analysis of spirometry results (n = 1,947) 28 to 35 days after inclusion. Bronchodilator responsiveness was diagnosed if there were recurrent complaints of wheezing, cough, or dyspnea and an increase of the forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) of 12% or more after bronchodilation. Airway obstruction was diagnosed according to 2 thresholds for the (postbronchodilator) ratio of FEV1 to forced vital capacity (FEV1:FVC): less than 0.7 and less than the lower limit of normal. RESULTS There were 240 participants who showed bronchodilator responsiveness

The condition is difficult to detect and may go unnoticed, because many patients have no specific symptoms. Diagnosis is further complicated by the fact that many patients with the injury experienced multiple other serious injuries as well,[10] so the attention of hospital staff may be distracted from the possibility of aortic rupture. In fact most cases occur along with other injuries.[4] A common symptom is unusually high blood pressure in the upper body and very low blood pressure in lower limbs. Another symptom is renal failure where the creatinine level shoots very high and urine output becomes negligible. In most cases, however, the doctors would misinterpret renal failure as due to issues with the kidney itself and may recommend dialysis. Though not completely reliable, chest X-rays are the first-line treatment,[4] initially used to diagnose this condition when the patient is unstable and cannot be sent to the CT bay. The preferred method of diagnosis used to be CT angiogram until it was ...
