Abstract

The symptom of cough may result from a multitude of etiologies involving different parts of the aerodigestive tract. This article focuses on the association of cough and swallowing dysfunction in the sense that cough may be an indicator of swallow dysfunction and in the importance of cough in preventing aspiration and aspiration-related disorders. Whereas these associations have been known for a long time, research is starting to connect the dots, allowing targeting of strategies aimed at diagnosing and preventing illness in certain dysphagic patients.
