Alteration in osmolarity of inhaled aerosols cause bronchoconstriction and cough, but absence of a permeant anion causes cough alone.

Abstract

To determine whether cough and bronchoconstriction result from alterations in the osmolarity or alterations in the ion concentration of inhaled aerosols and to determine if the specific ions in the aerosol are important, we had 9 subjects with mild asthma inhale various solutions while we recorded cough and measured specific airway resistance. To evaluate… (More)
