I am doing some research on cough sounds but my background is not health sector and I am facing issues to identify the correct type of cough.

I have two doubts :

  1. Is chesty cough Wet cough?
  2. Is Barking cough Dry cough?

If a person is suffering from Dry cough is it barking cough?


My understanding is that wet cough is the same as chesty cough. Dry coughs are those that do not bring up sputum. In my experience, "barking" cough has almost always referred to croup.
