Richard S. Irwin, MD, Master FCCP (CHEST Editor in Chief and Cough Guidelines Panel Chair) and Cough Expert Panel Member Tamara Pringsheim, MD, are interviewed by CHEST Podcast Editor, D. Kyle Hogarth, MD, FCCP, to introduce the latest updates to the CHEST Cough Guidelines. The introductory overview article is published in this month's issue and other cough topic updates will be published in upcoming issues of CHEST. The focus of this month's podcast is the development of the current guidelines. Drs. Irwin and Pringsheim emphasize the importance of evaluating research to make recommendations and the importance of bringing experts in all fields to the table. Dr. Pringsheim, in addition to being a guideline writing expert, was invited to join the panel because she is a neuroscientist specializing in movement disorders and could better help to evaluate evidence for habit cough.
