Cough is a complex maneuver that is utilized to clear undesired materials including mucous, dust and foreign bodies from the breathing passages. It involves the voice box region, or upper airway, as well as the bronchial tubes. Cough can be a manifestation of simple or complex illness as well. Ongoing or chronic cough (lasting 8 weeks or more) is among the most common symptoms bringing patients to the physician. Solving the problem of chronic cough requires an understanding of the interaction among the sinuses, voice box, lungs and bronchial tubes as well as the esophagus.
