3. Activities of daily living decline is a predictor of lowered coughing ability and correlates with rehabilitative effect of tongue cleaning on coughing ability. (Abstract)

Activities of daily living decline is a predictor of lowered coughing ability and correlates with rehabilitative effect of tongue cleaning on coughing ability. Basic activities of daily living (ADL) is a critical indicator of independency in older adults. The purpose of this study is to evaluate impact of ADL decline on coughing ability, as determined by peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR), and to evaluate impact of ADL decline on the ability of tongue cleaning intervention to improve PEFR (...) . Methods: Participants comprised 95 residents of 11 group homes and nursing homes in Kumamoto, Japan. Participants were randomly assigned to cohorts with or without tongue cleaning intervention. Coughing ability was evaluated by measuring PEFR before and after 2 weeks, 4 weeks, and 3 months of intervention. Basic ADL was assessed by Barthel index (BI). Mean BI score among the participants was 59.3 ± 24.2. PEFR in a cohort with ≤ 60 BI score (LB) (1.2, 0.2-4.7 L s-1) was significantly lower than

5. Is there evidence backing the use of guaifensin for cough secondary to upper respiratory infection (URI)?

Is there evidence backing the use of guaifensin for cough secondary to upper respiratory infection (URI)? Chiefs’ Inquiry Corner – 8/12/19 – Clinical Correlations Search Chiefs’ Inquiry Corner – 8/12/19 August 12, 2019 2 min read Clinicians frequently recommend symptomatic management for cough, specifically over-the-counter (OTC) medications, but the data doesn’t necessarily back it up. A 2014 Cochrane review of OTC medications for acute cough in adults and children found that among the 29 (...) randomized, placebo-controlled studies, there was poor reporting and little quantitative data. Among the three studies that specifically compared guaifensin and placebo, only one showed a significant difference, with patients taking guaifensin reporting a greater reduction in cough frequency and intensity after 3 days. Overall, only 11 of the 29 studies showed positive results for OTC medications such as guaifensin, dextromethorphan, and pseudophedrine. “Symptomatic management” may be an even more

Chronic Cough and Gastroesophageal Reflux in Children: CHEST Guideline and Expert Panel Report Whether gastroesophageal reflux (GER) or GER disease (GERD) causes chronic cough in children is controversial. Using the Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcome (PICO) format, we undertook four systematic reviews. For children with chronic cough (> 4-weeks duration) and without underlying lung disease: (1) who do not have gastrointestinal GER symptoms, should empirical treatment for GERD be used (...) ? (2) with gastrointestinal GER symptoms, does treatment for GERD resolve the cough? (3) with or without gastrointestinal GER symptoms, what GER-based therapies should be used and for how long? (4) if GERD is suspected as the cause, what investigations and diagnostic criteria best determine GERD as the cause of the cough?We used the CHEST Expert Cough Panel's protocol and American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) methodological guidelines and GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment

7. Speech and language therapy for management of chronic cough. (Abstract)

Speech and language therapy for management of chronic cough. Cough both protects and clears the airway. Cough has three phases: breathing in (inspiration), closure of the glottis, and a forced expiratory effort. Chronic cough has a negative, far-reaching impact on quality of life. Few effective medical treatments for individuals with unexplained (idiopathic/refractory) chronic cough (UCC) are known. For this group, current guidelines advocate the use of gabapentin. Speech and language therapy (...) of the two studies included children. The duration of treatment and length of sessions varied between studies from four sessions delivered weekly, to four sessions over two months. Similarly, length of sessions varied slightly from one 60-minute session and three 45-minute sessions to four 30-minute sessions. The control interventions were healthy lifestyle advice in both studies.One study contributed HRQoL data, using the Leicester Cough Questionnaire (LCQ), and we judged the quality of the evidence

Clinically Diagnosing Pertussis-associated Cough in Adults and Children: CHEST Guideline and Expert Panel Report The decision to treat a suspected case of pertussis with antibiotics is usually based on a clinical diagnosis rather than waiting for laboratory confirmation. The current guideline focuses on making the clinical diagnosis of pertussis-associated cough in adults and children.The American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) methodologic guidelines and the Grading of Recommendations (...) , Assessment, Development, and Evaluation framework were used. The Expert Cough Panel based their recommendations on findings from a systematic review that was recently published on the topic; final grading was reached by consensus according to Delphi methodology. The systematic review was carried out to answer the Key Clinical Question: In patients presenting with cough, how can we most accurately diagnose from clinical features alone those who have pertussis-associated cough as opposed to other causes

Effect of Tramadol Pretreatment on Sufentanil-Induced Cough. To investigate the effect of tramadol pretreatment on the incidence and severity of sufentanil-induced cough.Randomized controlled trial.Adults of both genders (N = 304; 18 to 65 years old, American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status I to II), scheduled for elective surgery, were randomized into two groups (n = 152): intravenous administration of tramadol 1 mg/kg (group T) or normal saline (group C). Then sufentanil bolus (...) 0.3 mcg/kg was administered intravenously in 5 seconds. The incidence and severity of cough were observed for 1 minute. Mean arterial pressure, heart rate, nausea, vomiting, and truncal rigidity during induction were also recorded.Patient characteristics were similar between the two groups. The incidence of cough was significantly lower in group T when compared with group C (7.9% vs 18.4%, P < .05); there were nine patients coughing severely in group C, whereas no severe cough occurred in group T
