|Title:||Co-ordinated intra-abdominal and intra-thoracic pressures regulate cough assisted cardiac circulatory support||Authors:||McLachlan, C.S.
|Issue Date:||11-Jan-2008||Citation:||McLachlan, C.S., Yow, S.Z. (2008-01-11). Co-ordinated intra-abdominal and intra-thoracic pressures regulate cough assisted cardiac circulatory support. International Journal of Cardiology 123 (2) : 191-192. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ijcard.2006.11.134||Abstract:||Periodically case studies emerge that demonstrate voluntary and forced coughing in ventricular fibrillation or asystole can maintain consciousness for up to 100 s. Forced cough is effective in producing co-ordinated abdominal muscle contraction and increases in intra-abdominal and thoracic pressures. These co-ordinated pressure changes are likely to be responsible for assisted circulation. In this short communication we discuss some of the possible abdominal physiological mechanisms for cough assisted circulatory support. © 2007 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
