Classification of Cough as a Symptom in Adults and Management Algorithms: CHEST Guideline and Expert Panel Report.

CONCLUSION: While the quality of evidence was low, the published literature since 2006 suggests that the CHEST Organization's 2006 Cough Guidelines and management algorithms for acute, subacute, and chronic cough in adults appeared useful in diagnosing and treating patients with cough around the globe. These same algorithms have been updated to reflect the advances in cough management as of 2017. PMID: 29080708 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: February 2020Source: Research in Developmental Disabilities, Volume 97Author(s): Claire Gosse, Marie Van ReybroeckAbstractSeveral studies have demonstrated that children with dyslexia frequently show poor and slow handwriting skills. It is not clear whether these difficulties are a consequence of their spelling deficit or if they arise from graphomotor difficulties. The present study aims to test the hypothesis of the presence of handwriting difficulties in dyslexia, through the investigation of the impact of graphic and orthographic complexity of words on writing. Participants were all monolingual French...
