Abstract

Cough is the most common symptom presenting to primary healthcare services. Cough in children is associated with significant morbidity for both children and their parents. While inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) can potentially reduce cough associated with airway inflammation and airway hyper-reactivity, use of ICS in children is not without potential adverse effects. Therefore, it would be beneficial to clinical practice to evaluate the evidence for the efficacy of ICS in reducing the severity of cough in children with subacute cough (defined as cough duration of two to four weeks) systematically.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 5. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 May 2013.
All research outputs
#3,151,914
of 12,527,219 outputs
Outputs from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#5,478
of 8,923 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#34,323
of 142,256 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Cochrane database of systematic reviews
#62
of 102 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,527,219 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 74th percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 8,923 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 21.2. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 142,256 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 75% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 102 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 39th percentile – i.e., 39% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
