Chronic Bronchitis - Bronchitis - Definition, Symptoms and Treatment

Definition It is a type of respiratory disease. It involves inflammation of the mucous membrane in the bronchial passage of the lungs. Coughing spells, breathlessness and thick phlegm accompany this breathing difficulty disease. They are caused by the thickening and swelling of the irritated membrane which closes or narrows down the tiny air passages inside the lungs and makes breathing troublesome. There are two types of bronchitis-chronic and acute.

Cough Suppressants or Expectorants Will Help to Loosen Mucus

Since most bronchitis breathing are viral attacks, you can give antibiotics a miss. Antibiotics, however, may be necessary if a bacterial infection has led to bronchitis or if he has impaired lung function. In cases of chronic bronchitis, oral or inhaled steroids for reducing inflammation, annual flu shots, one shot pneumonia vaccine, or/and supplemental oxygen are to be taken, as advised by your doctor, to protect your vulnerable lungs.

Treatment Please do not commit the blunder of waiting for all of the above mentioned symptoms to appear. Seek medical assistance. Take enough rest.
