Health care workers can now draw from more than 200 new recommendations from evidence-based guidelines for diagnosing and managing acute, subacute, and chronic cough thanks to a new document published by the American College of Chest Physicians. Diagnosis and Management of Cough: Evidence-Based Clinical Practice Guidelines provides recommendations for identifying and treating everything from the common cold to chronic lung conditions (Irwin RS et al. Chest. 2006;129(suppl):1S-292S).
