Chronic Cough is a clinical resource for practitioners treating patients with chronic cough. It is also a reference for any practicing or training clinician who wants to feel more confident in their understanding, workup and treatment of this symptom.

As the diagnosis and treatment of chronic cough evolves, empiric treatments are giving way to objective testing. Research is driving new therapeutics and testing modalities, and diagnostic advances and multidisciplinary collaboration has led to more successful treatments. Chronic Cough addresses these advancements by covering the basics of what is known, what is not known, and what is currently being discovered about chronic cough.

This practical resource will appeal to residents, advanced practice providers, and physicians in the fields of family practice, internal medicine, otolaryngology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, and speech-language pathology.

Key Features

  • Thinking Outside of the Box sections in each chapter provide practical information and controversial or less conventional ideas surrounding chronic cough
  • Take Home Points at the end of each chapter provide readers with a succinct summary of important facts
  • 20+ expert contributors from backgrounds in otolaryngology, including laryngology and rhinology, pulmonology, molecular and cellular pathology and speech-language pathology


"This is an important new book, dealing with what can seem a heart sink symptom and which is often referred to Otolaryngology as a last resort. The poor physicians have tried their bronchodilators and steroids, eliminated any vestige of gastric secretion and, in despair, wonder about 'the sinuses', if only to share the problem.

Much here is novel, especially the major input from laryngologists and rhinologists. At a first flick through the book, features like “Take Home Points” and especially the boxed 'Thinking Outside the Box' in every chapter really appealed. I quickly regretted only getting this to read at three months after retiring from clinical practice!"
Liam M Flood FRCS FRCSI, Middlesbrough UK in the Journal of Laryngology and Otology (April 2019)

"This is a thorough overview of chronic cough with up-to-date references in which experts in their fields discuss etiologies and treatments. The book discusses a multidisciplinary treatment paradigm and covers cough etiologies and treatment possibilities from the specialist's area of expertise. Each chapter provides avenues of consideration when approaching the evaluation of a chronic cough patient. The references to both landmark studies and more recent publications are particularly noteworthy. The "think outside the box" on controversial and less-controversial ideas surrounding chronic cough are particularly engaging. I am particularly pleased with the contribution of four speech pathologists to this publication."
Jonelyn Langenstein, MM, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Doody's Book Reviews (May 2019)
