MedStats member, Dr Douiri, and colleagues have published a study titled: ‘Physiotherapy, and speech and language therapy intervention for patients with refractory chronic cough: a multicentre randomised control trial’

The study investigated whether physiotherapy, and speech and language therapy intervention (PSALTI) is effective for patients with refractory chronic cough. Using a multi-centred randomised controlled trial, the study found that PSALTI ‘significantly reduced objective cough frequency and significantly improved health related quality of life when compared with control intervention’.
