In patients presenting with an acute cough:

b) Diagnose a viral infection clinically, principally by taking an appropriate history.
c) Do not treat viral infections with ant
In pediatric patients with a persistent (or recurrent) cough, generate a broad differential diagnosis
In patients with a persistent (e.g., for weeks) cough:
a) Consider non-pulmonary causes, as well as other serious causes in the differential diagnosis.
b) Investigate appropriately.
Do not ascribe a persistent cough to an adverse drug effect without first considering other causes.
In smokers with persistent cough, assess for chronic bronchitis and make a positive diagnosis when it is present.
