  Title A chiropractor's guide to the epidemiology, clinical diagnosis and treatment of pediatric cough
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2013 Jun;14(1):1070-1087
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Background: Pediatric cough is responsible for many visits to the doctor. Chiropractors are often seen as a "gatekeeper" for helping parents determine appropriate care. Although many causes of cough are self-limiting, some are serious and require prompt referral.

Objective: To provide information necessary for determining the cause, diagnosis and appropriate treatment of pediatric cough.

Discussion: A cough is a physiologic reflex and important defense mechanism designed by the body to remove material or secretions from a person's airway. It is an indication of an underlying illness or problem that will need careful diagnosis. All children cough at some time and most resolve naturally; however, parents frequently seek physician care when coughing arises. The cause of cough in children can vary more widely than those seen in adults.

Conclusion: There are many causes for coughs in infants and children. The knowledgeable physician can identify cause with an appropriate history and examination. Once a proper diagnosis is made, effective treatment can be administered.
