1) Recognize the differential diagnosis of cough in the preschool age group(e.g., reactive airway disease vs asthma vs sinusitis vs allergies vs persistent bacterial bronchitis, GERD)

2) Identify diagnostic tools for chronic cough in the preschool-aged child (e.g.,  what diagnostic tools are available for kids too young to do spirometry?  How likely is sinusitis and allergic rhinitis in this age group?)

3) Recognize initial management options for cough in preschoolers

Wan Tsai, MD. and the planners of this activity have disclosed that they have no financial relationships with a commercial interest that constitute a relevant financial relationship.  

A commercial interest is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests - unless the provider of clinical service is owned, or controlled by, an ACCME-defined commercial interest.
