Sist revidert av:

Definisjon:
Daglig produktiv hoste i mer enn 3 måneder i 2 påfølgende år. Skyldes inhalasjon av skadestoffer, hyppigst tobakksrøyk, ev. luftforurensning eller yrkesmessig eksponering.
Forekomst:
Symptomet kronisk hoste finnes hos 6-7% i befolkningen (inkl. KOLS).
Symptomer:
Diagnosen stilles på bakgrunn av sykehistorie med vedvarende slimhoste uten annen forklaring.
Funn:
Det finnes ingen typiske kliniske funn ved denne tilstanden.
Diagnostikk:
Utredning med spirometri, rtg. eller CT-thorax, samt orienterende blodprøver, kan være aktuelt for å utelukke andre tilstander med slimhoste.
Behandling:
Unngå inhalasjon av skadestoffer. I de fleste tilfellene betyr det røykeslutt.
