PURPOSE: The purpose of the study is to demonstrate the applicability of the therapeutic strategy in the different grades of hospitals.

METHODS: Sequential empirical three-step therapy was given to the patients with chronic cough in respiratory clinics of one tertiary hospital and three second care hospitals respectively. Recruiters were initially treated with methoxyphenamine compound as first-step therapy, followed by corticosteriods as second-step therapy and the combination of a proton pump inhibitor and a prokinetic agent as third-step therapy. The efficacy of the therapy was verified according to the changes in cough symptom score before and after treatment, and compared among the different grades of hospitals.
