Other specified cough
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Tracheal esophageal fistula cough
- Antitussive Agents-. agents that suppress cough. they act centrally on the medullary cough center. expectorants, also used in the treatment of cough, act locally.
- Cough-. a sudden, audible expulsion of air from the lungs through a partially closed glottis, preceded by inhalation. it is a protective response that serves to clear the trachea, bronchi, and/or lungs of irritants and secretions, or to prevent aspiration of foreign materials into the lungs.
- Headache Disorders, Primary-. conditions in which the primary symptom is headache and the headache cannot be attributed to any known causes.
- Whooping Cough-. a respiratory infection caused by bordetella pertussis and characterized by paroxysmal coughing ending in a prolonged crowing intake of breath.
- Expectorants-. agents that increase mucous excretion. mucolytic agents, that is drugs that liquefy mucous secretions, are also included here.
- Headache-. the symptom of pain in the cranial region. it may be an isolated benign occurrence or manifestation of a wide variety of headache disorders.
- Bordetella pertussis-. a species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria that is the causative agent of whooping cough. its cells are minute coccobacilli that are surrounded by a slime sheath.

R058 replaces the following previously assigned ICD-10-CM code(s):
Coughing is a reflex that keeps your throat and airways clear. Although it can be annoying, coughing helps your body heal or protect itself. Coughs can be either acute or chronic. Acute coughs begin suddenly and usually last no more than 2 to 3 weeks. Acute coughs are the kind you most often get with a cold, flu, or acute bronchitis. Chronic coughs last longer than 2 to 3 weeks. Causes of chronic cough include:
- Chronic bronchitis
- COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
- GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease)
- Throat disorders, such as croup in young children
- Some medicines
Water can help ease your cough - whether you drink it or add it to the air with a steamy shower or vaporizer. If you have a cold or the flu, antihistamines may work better than non-prescription cough medicines. Children under four should not have cough medicine. For children over four, use caution and read labels carefully.
