Cough

Cough is always due to a Respiratory Tract condition, somewhere between the nose & depths of the lung.

We divide it into โ€œUpperโ€ and โ€œLowerโ€ Respiratory Tracts:
โ€ข Upper Tract: nose, sinuses, throat, & trachea (windpipe)
โ€ข Lower Tract: lungs
โ€ข See Diagrams — Upper and Lower Respiratory Systems

For the clinician’s approach to diagnosing “Cough,” select either:

Acute Cough (lasting 2-3 weeks or less)

Chronic Cough (going on 4 weeks or more)
