Abstract

Tussive syncope is a rare condition that often responds to treatment of the underlying cause of coughing. Therefore, the workup and diagnosis of the cause is essential. However, at times, the cough is refractory to conventional treatment. The use of nebulized lidocaine in such instances may be an important adjunctive therapy.
