Zusammenfassung

Jeder Mensch wind mehr oder weniger häufig von Schluckauf (Singultus) geplagt. Meist handelt es sich dabei um kurze Episoden, z. B. nach hastiger Nahrungsaufnahme, die zu keiner ärztlichen Aufmerksamkeit gelangen. Prolongierte Singultusattacken, die über 48 h anhalten oder trotz Behandlung rezidivierend auftreten, kommen zwar selten vor, können jedoch für den Patienten äußerst belastend sein. Auf keinen Fall dürfen sie von medizinischer Seite unterschätzt werden, da sie zu Schlaflosigkeit, körperlichem Abbau, Erschöpfung und Depression führen können (Launois et al. 1993; Fodstad u. Nilsson 1993). Der berühmteste Patient mit persistierendem Schluckauf war Papst Pius XII (1876–1956; Fodstad u. Nilsson 1993). Den zweifelhaften Ruhm des „Weltrekordes im Schluckauf“ genießt Charles Osbourne (1894–1991) aus Iowa (USA), den der Schluckauf gemäßt dem „Guinness Buch der Rekorde 1997“ im Jahre 1922 beim Schluchten eines Mastschweins überfiel und der ihn seither 69 Jahre und 5 Monate bis eines Februarmorgens im Jahre 1990 alle anderthalb Sekunden plagte (Fricke et ul. 1996). Er führte dennoch ein einigermaßen normales Leben, war zweimal verheiratet und hatte 8 Kinder.
