Cough from a cardiologic perspective Abstract. A cough is at the efferent end of a complex reflex arc and, due to its well-known mechanical respiratory cleaning function, usually the first symptom prompting a pneumological clarification. However, the chemical and mechanical afferent neuronal parts of the reflex, the cough receptors, are distributed over a variety of organ systems, some of which directly and indirectly affect the heart. Cardiology therefore plays a central role in the clarification of coughs. In cardiology, a cough is most frequently caused by acute and chronic heart failure resulting from different types of cardiomyopathies. It can, however, be caused by other pathologies as well. The connection between cough and cardiac arrhythmia is interesting, although cough can be cause, consequence and therapy. Last but not least, almost all drugs frequently prescribed in cardiology can cause cough in one way or another. In addition, a cough is the current number 1 warning sign when it comes to COVID-19 infection. On the one hand, it must be differentiated from cardiac-induced coughs, but on the other hand it can also be closely related to them.
