This study tests the hypothesis that susceptibility to the tussive effect of hypotonic aerosol is related to the ventilatory response to CO2. The threshold concentration of saline required to elicit cough and the ventilatory response to CO2 were determined in 18 normal subjects. Twelve subjects coughed with hypotonic aerosol (responders), and six did not (nonresponders). The CO2 ventilatory responses, which were normalized for vital capacity, were greater in the responders than in the… CONTINUE READING
