Chronic Bronchitis Patients - can Chronic Bronchitis be Cured?

Chronic bronchitis is no doubt a very irritating and even debilitating condition to have. The shortness of every breath, the coughing up of phlegm, and trouble falling asleep serve as constant reminders that an individual is inflicted with the condition. In the latest stages of the disease the individual may notice labored breathing (hyperventilation), hypoxemia (insufficient amounts of oxygen in the blood) and failure of the right side of the heart. So, is there a cure for chronic bronchitis? :lol:

Helpful Lifestyle Changes for Chronic Bronchitics

Quit Smoking: Smoking is one of the leading causes of chronic bronchitis, and continued smoking when one already has the condition will definitely worsen things and can lead to an exacerbation of chronic bronchitis.

Eat Healthy: The necessary vitamins and minerals will strengthen the immune system to guard against the infections that chronic bronchitics are so prone to. Did you ever believe that there was so much to learn about Bronchitis? Neither did we! Once we got to write this article, it seemed to be endless.

Although there is currently no cure for chronic bronchitis, one can still seek treatment to alleviate the symptoms and to prevent any further complications from the disease from developing. The best thing an individual can do if they are suffering from chronic bronchitis is to quit smoking and start eating right and getting plenty of rest. Those that follow this routine will find a reduction in the symptoms of their chronic bronchitis, and will have taken the right steps in preventing the disease from developing into emphysema or other conditions.

Other Useful Tips

Avoid Polluted Air: Air pollutants such as dust, fumes and second hand smoke can irritate the lungs to worsen the condition. Get Vaccines: Since chronic bronchitis will make a person more susceptible to infections, getting flu shots and pneumonia shots will be good precautions to take. :lol:

  • Proper Exercise: Sometimes, doctors will recommend an exercise program called pulmonary rehabilitation to chronic bronchitis patients.
  • This program involves teaching the patient certain exercises that aim to strengthen breathing muscles to make breathing easier.

Mucolytics: These Drugs Makes Mucous Less Viscous and Easier to Cough Up

Oxygen therapy: Chronic bronchitis makes it difficult to breathe oxygen into the lungs. Oxygen therapy is sometimes administered to increase oxygen content in the body to acceptable levels. We worked as diligently as an owl in producing this composition on Chronic Bronchitis Patients. So only if you do read it, and appreciate its contents will we feel our efforts haven't gone in vain.

Unfortunately, There is No Known Cure for Chronic Bronchitis to Date

However, there are ways to curb the symptoms and slow down its progression. With proper medical treatment in combination with necessary lifestyle changes, a person with chronic bronchitis has every chance of enjoying life and extending his/her lifespan. Some of these treatment options are mentioned below. Go ahead and read this article on Bronchitis. We would also appreciate it if you could give us an analysis on it for us to make any needed changes to it.

Has Long Been Known that Smoking and Lung Cancer are Causally Linked

After having discovered this association though, much has been made of the heightened incidence of other forms of cancer caused by of smoking. I am going to highlight the data that reiterates the claims and suggest that the evidence is not so strong for other forms of cancer being causally linked with smoking. The evidence is analysed from the mortality statistics for the UK in 2002. :D.


Oesophageal cancer deaths numbered just under 5,000 and the deceased were found to be 66% smokers, 71% and 65% men to women respectively; again another clear link that smoking and oesophageal cancer are linked. This can be considered to be a valuable article on Emphysema Bronchitis. It is because there is so much to learn about Emphysema Bronchitis here. :o.


Pancreatic cancer is another cancer that is less prevalent in smokers than the general population. Indeed 20% of men and 26% of women dying from the disease in 2002 were smokers, suggesting parity with women and a disparity with men. It may be reasonable therefore to assume that there are other contributory factors in male pancreatic cancers. Using great confidence in ourselves, we endeavored to write such a long article on Bronchitis Emphysema. Such is the amount of matter found on Acute bronchitis symptom treatment.

Will work through the statistics because 26% of the population are smokers and so one might reasonably assume that any incidence of cancer where less than 26% of sufferers are smokers may have other more prevalent causes than smoking. The sources used for the information for this article on Emphysema Bronchitis are all dependable ones. This is so that there be no confusion in the authenticity of the article.

Deaths from COPD in 2002 in the UK numbered 28,500 of which 84% were smokers demonstrating a clear link between the inhalation of tobacco smoke and the disease as is the case with lung cancer. The information available on Chronic Bronchitis is infinite. There just seems to be so much to learn about, and to write about on Chronic Bronchitis. :roll:


All in all, there were over 114,000 premature deaths in 2002 from cigarette smoking, mostly from cancer, but also from heart disease and pulmonary (lung) disease. The best way to improve ones chances of not suffering from a shortened life and succumbing to one of the diseases mentioned in this article is by quitting smoking once and for all. Benefits have been clearly documented and the sooner smokers quit, the bigger the benefits of quitting become on their life expectancy. Indeed, smokers who quit before they reach thirty, statistically negate virtually all the ill health effect of smoking and can generally expect to live as long as a non-smoking contemporary. We have also translated parts of this composition into French and Spanish to facilitate easier understanding of Emphysema Bronchitis. In this way, more people will get to understand the composition.

Next, Bladder Cancer Takes Over 1,800 Lives Per Year of Which 37% are Found to be Smokers

However, only 19% of female cases were smokers compared with 47% of male cases. It is fair to assume that there are other factors more prevalent in female bladder cancer other than smoking but the link is clear in men. Dwelving into the interiors of Bronchitis has led us to all this information here on Bronchitis. Bronchitis do indeed have a lot to tell!Dwelving into the interiors of Bronchitis has led us to all this information here on Bronchitis. Bronchitis do indeed have a lot to tell!

Death from cancer of the upper respiratory tract was found at a rate of 66% in smokers, nearly three times the percentage of smokers. Note though that women sufferers represented half of their cohort compared with three quarters of men, suggesting upper respiratory cancer is more likely in men than in women smokers.

Some sources suggest that pneumonia is more likely to kill in smokers but only 17% of the 36,000 fatal pneumonia cases were found in smokers suggesting this is not the case.

Finally, heart disease is the biggest single killer in the UK with over a quarter of a million deaths a year as a result of its various forms. Of all the major forms of heart disease, ischaemic heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, aortic aneurysm, myocardial degeneration and atherosclerosis, the percentage of smokers suffering from aortic aneuryism was just under 60%. All other forms of heart disease showed near 26% or below. This suggests that smoking may not be the main contributory factor but it almost certainly will have had an impact. :evil:

Will work through the statistics because 26% of the population are smokers and so one might reasonably assume that any incidence of cancer where less than 26% of sufferers are smokers may have other more prevalent causes than smoking. Perhaps you may not have been interested in this passage on Bronchitis Emphysema. In that case, please don't spread this feedback around!

Deaths from COPD in 2002 in the UK numbered 28,500 of which 84% were smokers demonstrating a clear link between the inhalation of tobacco smoke and the disease as is the case with lung cancer. It was with great optimism that we started out on writing this composition on Chronic Bronchitis Emphysema. Please don't let us lose this optimism.
