Interactions between vagal afferent nerve subtypes mediating cough

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The cough reflex is initiated through activation of vagal afferent nerves. Rapidly adapting receptors fulfill all criteria for the afferents subserving the cough reflex. Bronchopulmonary C-fibres may also initiate cough when activated. C-fibre-mediated cough may depend upon ongoing or initiated activity in rapidly adapting receptors. The interaction between airways C-fibres and rapidly adapting receptors may occur at sites in the periphery or in the brainstem. C-fibre mediated cough must also overcome a coincident inhibitory effect of C-fibre activation on cough, an inhibitory effect that becomes prominent under general anesthaesia.
