Anamnesis from a medical report
Der Patient leidet an trockenen "Reizhusten" mit Luftnot.
Explanation: non productive (trocken) irritative cough.
"In four subjects who reported development of irritative cough during exposure to PG, FEV1 was decreased by 5%, but FEV1 was unchanged among those who did not develop a cough. Those who developed a cough also had an increased perception of mild dyspnoea." http://oem.bmjjournals.com/cgi/content/full/58/10/649
