treatment of cough due to bronchitis in adults
The American College of Chest Physicians is highlighting the appropriate treatment of cough due to bronchitis in adults.
Acute bronchitis affects about 5% of adults each year. The cough lasts up to 3 weeks and is only sometimes productive.
Viruses are the most common cause...bacteria account for less than 10% of cases. DON'T routinely recommend antibiotics.
