Should I be worried if I'm continuously coughing after a night at ICU Waiting Room?Register Today!
- by delrepublica1776 Nov 24, '10I'll keep it brief: I'm a male pre-nursing student who volunteers Tuesday and Wednesday nights at an ICU Waiting Room at a nearby hospital.
So tonight, after I've come home, I keep on coughing and coughing. I've never had it so persistent!
And my throat feels a little itchy and irritated.
Am I just being paranoid that it might be something big just because I was periodically in and out of an ICU?
Or should I just go to sleep and hope it goes away when I'm awake?
- Nov 24, '10 by kgh31386Coughing anything up at all? Well what do you think could have caused it? No one was on any kind of airborne or droplet precautions right? And I really doubt you just came down with something like TB in a few hours. Probably just sucked something down your throat. Take some Robitussin and see if it goes away by tomorrow

I'm laying down in bed while writing this, and it's sort of mitigating the cough
