Abstract/OtherAbstract:
As the number of published articles in the field of cough increases year on year, it is sometimes helpful to pause and review what might have passed us by. This "Clinical Year in Review" provides an opportunity to reflect on a number of important studies reported in the area of both adult and pediatric cough. It would be impossible to cover all the important published literature; therefore, this effort has been confined to selected topics published in the last 12 months with direct relevance to the clinical management, measurement, and treatment of cough. While this article reflects a personal commentary of the literature, it is hoped that it will contribute to improving "evidence-based" care for the many individuals burdened with a troublesome cough.
