Episode 120: PREMIUM – Two interesting studies for your patients with coughs and colds

In Episode 120, Mike and James, in an attempt to truly make this a PREMIUM podcast, elicit Tina Korownyk to yet again help us unravel the mysteries of medicines. In this podcast, we report on two new studies that look at two old therapies for cough and cold symptoms (Vapor Rub and Zinc). We learn that despite coughs and colds being a very common condition, effective therapies are definitely not common.

Show notes

1) Vapor Rub for children with nocturnal cough and cold symptoms

Pediatrics 2010;126:1092-9 

2) Zinc systematic review

Cochrane Library
