GERD-Related Cough: Pathophysiology and Diagnostic Approach.

16:34 EST 20th December 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "GERD-Related Cough: Pathophysiology and Diagnostic Approach."

Chronic cough is a common problem resulting in significant impairment of quality of life. Along with cough variant asthma and nasal disease, gastroesophageal reflux is considered one of three main causes of cough. Despite this, acid suppression therapy is often far from effective. This review aims to explore whether reflux can lead to cough, the circumstances in which this is most likely to occur, and the potential mechanisms linking these processes. Particular mechanisms to be explored include laryngopharyngeal reflux, microaspiration, and neuronal cross-organ sensitization. Finally, diagnostic approaches are considered.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Agents that suppress cough. They act centrally on the medullary cough center. EXPECTORANTS, also used in the treatment of cough, act locally.

Narcotic analgesic related to CODEINE, but more potent and more addicting by weight. It is used also as cough suppressant.

An opioid analgesic related to MORPHINE but with less potent analgesic properties and mild sedative effects. It also acts centrally to suppress cough.

Any situation where an animal or human is trained to respond differentially to two stimuli (e.g., approach and avoidance) under reward and punishment conditions and subsequently trained under reversed reward values (i.e., the approach which was previously rewarded is punished and vice versa).

Facilities providing diagnostic, therapeutic, and palliative services for patients with severe chronic pain. These may be free-standing clinics or hospital-based and serve ambulatory or inpatient populations. The approach is usually multidisciplinary. These clinics are often referred to as "acute pain services". (From Br Med Bull 1991 Jul;47(3):762-85)
