The use of drugs for airway control has its beginnings in medical anaesthesia. Since then, the 'airway effects' of pharmacological agents have sometimes been a matter of concern, while at other times a boon for the clinician. While several effects of agents on airway function are 'off-target effects', an understanding of these effects could aid in better choice of the drug to be administered to the patient. At the same time, it will aid the drug development scientist in selecting and optimising drug candidates. This review details the developments in the pharmacology of drugs that influence airway function.
