Acute and Chronic Cough Care

Cough is among the most common complaints bringing patients to the New York Cough Center at Kamelhar-Teller Pulmonology. There are several types of cough, each with their own implications and causes. An acute cough is one that has been troubling the patient for days to weeks and is most often the result of a simple infection or irritation. A chronic cough is one that has lasted for eight weeks and requires a more complex evaluation.

Diagnosing Cough

The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) has developed a science-based algorithm, or recommended outline, of how a cough should be assessed. By following this outline, serious conditions are excluded and more “routine” but troubling conditions are considered for diagnosis and treatment. According to the ACCP, most chronic coughs arise in the upper airway or throat/voice box region.
