What Is A Cardiac Cough
Cough: Cough can be a symptom of cardiac disease, particularly heart failure. Sometimes people can wheeze as well. However, there is no such entity as a "cardiac cough" that has any specific characteristics that differentiate it from other types of cough. The whole clinical picture has to be considered. ...Read more
The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

I had a stent placed in april '12 and have had a cough since. In the last 3 months it has become productive, but clear. I take no cardiac meds.
Nonresolving cough needs evaluation. Common causes include sinus drainage or esophageal reflux..
More worrisome causes would include lung pathology including cancer or pulmonary embolism.
Most patients who have stents placed should be on an ace inhibitor like Lisinopril - this can cause chronic cough.
Aspirin and statins are also good post-stent meds; surprising that you are not on these. ...Read more
Do u have to have a cough with pneumonia because I was having chest pain sob ruled out cardiac but found pneumonia on cxr but had no cough?

Experiencing pain in left outside edge of rib cage; no cough, cardiac ruled out, hurts to lie on at night. Radiates down arm; fasciculations. Ideas??
Musculoskeletal?: Greetings to my old hometown! I'm a runnin' Ute. Symptoms sound musculoskeletal, particularly how they run down arm and are aggravated by lying on affected side at night. If you are a smoker I'd start with a chest X-Ray to help rule out intrathoracic pathology. If not, then I'd give nonsteroidals a shot, say Ibuprofen 400mg three times a day for one week if no allergies to the same. Then, see MD ...Read more

Can diltiazem be the cause of my cough? I have WPW & myocardial bridging of the coronary arteries
Probably not.: Diltiazem is a calcium channel blocker and is not usually associated with a cough. ACE inhibitors such as enlapril, lisinopril and captopril have a significant side effect with a cough. Angiotensin Converting Enzyme drugs cause a chemical reaction in the lungs by blocking the conversion of angiotensin 1 to angiotensin 2. Look for other factors like reflux causing the cough. Good luck. ...Read more

This has never: Been scientifically proven.Get a more detailed answer ›
Sometimes people: Have a cardiac arrest preceded by an arrhythmia, or abnormal heart rhythm. Not always from a blockage of a coronary artery. The rhythm that may respond to coughing is called ventricular tachycardia. If th epatient coughs hard, it may sometimes trigger the neves to the heart that slow the heart rate and at least temporarily return the rhythm to one that is less dangerous. But you must seek help. ...Read more

I keep coughing and I have a severe head cold with an avg. resting heart rate of 110. I am scared about cardiac arrest, should I go back to a doc?
Endoscopy, was given cardiac-XYLOCAINE , propofol, some med to dry mouth. After the procedure heart was racing, coughing, jittery, legs shakey. Why?
The medication to: dry your mouth has vagolytic effects resulting in elevated heart rate, jittery and leg shake. Also post anesthetic you would not be clearing your secretions normally so you would probably cough. The Lidocaine was probably given because the propofol burns in the IV and is very uncomfortable without it. It all sounds pretty normal and routine. No worries. ...Read more
