Chronic cough is associated with poor quality of life and may signify a serious underlying disease. Differentiating non-specific cough (when 'watchful waiting' can be safely undertaken) from specific cough (treatment and/or further investigations are beneficial) would be clinically useful. In 326 children, we aimed to; (a) determine how well cough pointers (used in guidelines) differentiate specific from non-specific cough; and (b) describe the clinical profile of children whose cough resolved without medications ('spontaneous-resolution').

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 31 March 2015.
All research outputs
of 17,391,055 outputs
Outputs from CHEST
of 10,594 outputs
Outputs of similar age
of 313,069 outputs
Outputs of similar age from CHEST
of 117 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 17,391,055 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 72nd percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 10,594 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 10.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its peers.
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 313,069 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 117 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
