Sad Chronic Bronchitis Signs and Symptoms
Chronic Bronchial Asthma - Chronic Bronchitis Signs and Symptoms
Chronic bronchitis is the inflammation or swelling of the air passageways (bronchi) in the upper respiratory system. This is usually accompanied by the excessive production of mucus. Chronic bronchitis can manifest as many different symptoms, and is often hard to diagnose because the symptoms are so similar to other diseases that affect the lungs and respiratory system. Today, one in twenty Americans currently suffers chronic bronchitis. Even though the number has been steadily falling since the 70s, the number of patients suffering from chronic bronchitis still concerns doctors as it is often fatal. Below are some common signs and symptoms of chronic bronchitis:
  • Fatigue - Fatigue is often experienced by individuals suffering from chronic bronchitis.
  • They become tired just after waking, or other random times throughout the day.
  • This is because the amount of oxygen in their blood is significantly less than those who don't suffer from the disease.
  • A substantial amount of the words here are all inter-connected to and about Bronchitis Often.
  • Understand them to get an overall understanding on Bronchitis Often.

Swelling of the Legs and Ankles - Because chronic bronchitis can often lead to further complications, due to a lack of oxygen in the blood, it may cause the skin to turn blue or the extremities to swell in the later stages of chronic bronchitis. Swelling of the legs is also an indication of congestive heart failure, so individuals experiencing this symptom should see a doctor right away.

Respiratory Infections
Chronic bronchitis is often the cause of respiratory infections. Because more mucus is produced by the body in those suffering from respiratory infections, this makes the upper respiratory system very damp and warm. This can be a breeding ground of sorts for infection, and makes infections very hard to treat once they are contracted.

Shortness of Breath
This occurs in most people suffering from chronic bronchitis. The shortness of breath may be aggravated by overworking or even just mild activity. As the disease progresses the shortness of breath may even come from simply walking a short distance, or walking down some stairs. Even if you are a stranger in the world of Bronchitis Signs Symptoms, once you are through with this article, you will no longer have to consider yourself to be a stranger in it!
  • Coughing - Coughing caused by chronic bronchitis is usually first noticed in the early morning, just after waking up.
  • The individual may cough for several hours after waking up.
  • As the disease progresses, this coughing will last for longer into the day, and in some cases never goes away.
  • Bronchitis is the substance of this composition.
  • Without Bronchitis, there would not have been much to write and think about over here!

Bronchitis symptoms will most commonly begin to be manifest following a bout of the flu or the common cold. The body cannot manage to heal itself fully, and symptoms such as heavy coughing will begin to be manifest, this coughing could be dry, or phlegmy. The cough produced by bronchitis can potentially last for several weeks, also bringing with it the possibility of pain in the chest and abdomen, as well as difficulty breathing to the point of wheezing.

You have been suffering with bronchitis symptoms for longer than two weeks or have had a fever for even just a couple of days, you may need to call your physician's office for an appointment. You need to rule out pneumonia. Also, if you start coughing up blood or have phlegm with a rusty tint, you need to be checked immediately. If a virus has caused the bronchitis, your physician will not be able to do much to treat the bronchitis. The doctor can treat you with medications for relief of the symptoms associated with bronchitis. However, only time and rest will help the bronchitis, itself. At any cost, do not accept a prescription for antibiotics. They may affect your immune system's ability to attack the disease and eradicate it. Also, they will not help your bronchitis. Accept the way things are in life. Only then will you be able to accept these points on Bronchitis. Bronchitis can be considered to be part and parcel of life.
  • Advil, Tylenol, and aspirin are three of the most often used medications to treat bronchitis symptoms.
  • However, aspirin is not advised for anyone eighteen years old or younger.
  • A complication known as Reye's Syndrome can occur which could be fatal.
  • Drinking a lot of liquids can help to avoid the dehydration normally associated with fever.
  • It can also relieve an irritated throat from constant coughing.
  • Another treatment for the cough is over the counter cough suppressants.
  • Ignorance is bliss they say.
  • However, do you find this practical when you read so much about Bronchitis?

Bronchitis include a cough that produces mucus (sometimes called sputum), trouble breathing and a feeling of tightness in your chest. Acute bronchitis is most often caused by one of a number of viruses that can infect the respiratory tract and attack the bronchial tubes. Even one puff on a cigarette is enough to cause temporary paralysis of the tiny hair like structures in your lungs, called cilia , that are responsible for brushing out debris, irritants, and excess mucus. Chronic bronchitis is defined by the presence of a mucus-producing cough most days of the month, three months of a year for two successive years without other underlying disease to explain the cough. People who have chronic bronchitis are more susceptible to bacterial infections of the airway and lungs, like pneumonia. Pneumonia is more common among smokers and people who are exposed to secondhand smoke. :o.

Breathing moist air from a humidifier, hot shower, or sink filled with hot water. The heat and moisture can help keep mucus in your airways moist so it can be coughed out easily. Bronchitis are versatile as they are found in all parts and walks of life. It all depends on the way you take it.

Causes of Bronchitis
The common Causes of Bronchitis : The most common cause of chronic bronchitis is smoking. Heredity. Weather changes. There is a vast ocean of knowledge connected with Bronchitis. What is included here can be considered a fraction of this knowledge!

Some cases, the doctor will recommend using a medicine called a bronchodilator that makes breathing easier. Persistent symptoms and more severe disease are treated with anti-inflammatory medicines called steroids (of the glucocorticoid type) which are given with an inhaler.
  • Acute bronchitis is usually caused by a viral infection but can also be caused by a bacterial infection.
  • Use of drugs.
  • Symptoms of Bronchitis Bronchitis Common play a prominent part in this composition.

Mild fever Coldness Chills Mild chest pains Treatment of Bronchitis Medicines called bronchodilators that are usually prescribed to treat asthma will help to open the bronchial tubes and clear out mucus. There are many varieties of Chronic Bronchitis found today. However, we have stuck to the description of only one variety to prevent confusion!

Medicines called mucolytics which thin or loosen mucus in the airways, making it easier to cough up can also be used to treat chronic bronchitis. Developing a vision on Cough Chronic Bronchitis, we saw the need of providing some enlightenment in Cough Chronic Bronchitis for others to learn more about Cough Chronic Bronchitis.

Some Symptoms of Bronchitis : Vibration in chest when breathing Fatigue and/or malaise Headache Shortness of breath Wheezing

First, the Cause:
Acute bronchitis may become chronic if it is not properly treated and relieved. When a cold is allowed to continue, the infection may extend down into the lungs and become chronic. Occasionally, if it is not cured, it may encourage the development of tuberculosis or some other serious chronic lung disease.

Some forms of stomach trouble may be a cause of bronchitis and even pneumonia. This is particularly true of those persons who bring up acid and other stomach contents into the mouth while asleep, and then aspirate it into their lungs. We have written a humorous anecdote on Acute Bronchitis to make it's reading more enjoyable and interesting to you. This way you learn there is a funny side to Acute Bronchitis too!

Almost continual coughing; coughing up quantities of mucus and phlegm; shortness of breath and wheezing. These symptoms may become very severe and disabling. It was at the spur of the moment that we ventured to write something about Bronchitis Coughs. Such is the amount of matter that is available on Bronchitis Coughs.

Everyone should keep herbs on hand for colds and influenza and not let them develop into chronic bronchial trouble. Medicinal Herbs Sage: Used for bronchitis and al kinds of lung trouble and throat sicknesses. We were furnished with so many points to include while writing about Acute Bronchitis that we were actually lost as to which to use and which to discard!

"Side Effects"
It cleanses the blood and can be used healing most everything as it boosts the immune system. Licorice: Used for lung and throat problems. Bronchitis, coughs and congestion, ect. It has been shown to support antiviral activity, support the stress response, as well as inflammatory response The results of one reading this composition is a good understanding on the topic of Acute Bronchitis. So do go ahead and read this to learn more about Acute Bronchitis.

This is why we have introduced this side of Acute Bronchitis to you.

There are two basic categories of bronchitis. Acute bronchitis is typically associated with colds and flu like symptoms. While chronic bronchitis may last months or even years, the acute variety typically is limited in duration to no more than a week or two.

A Low to Mid Grade Fever
And a general feeling of "yuckyness." Most acute bronchitis is usually caused by a viral infection and can be spread through person-to-person contact either directly or indirectly. This means that if you are a caregiver of someone who has bronchitis, you are at risk of contracting the illness yourself. Patience was exercised in this article on Bronchitis. Without patience, it would not have been possible to write extensively on Bronchitis.

Avoid smoking and smoke whenever possible. There are many chemicals, fumes and particle dust that can irritate and compromise bronchial passages. None more so however than smoking. If you have someone suffering from acute bronchitis, try to keep them away from any smoking environment. They simply don't need the extra stress on an already infected pulmonary system We have actually followed a certain pattern while writing on Bronchitis Acute.

We consider that we have only touched the perimeter of information available on Bronchitis. There is still a lot more to be learnt!

Cover Your Mouth
Teach anyone that gets ill to cover their mouths when they cough to limit transmission of the illness. Once again, this is not perfect solution that can help to contain an influenza virus that may result in bronchitis. Perhaps you may not have been interested in this passage on Bronchitis.

Rainbow RE: Chronic Bronchitis Signs and Symptoms
Does a Bronchitis Cough - Bronchitis With Asthma - Understand Significant Facts
What is Asthamtic Bronchitis? This is a disease which is very close to bronchitis in that the airways are inflamed or irritated. And because the disease is similar to other respiratory illnesses such as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis and emphysema..it is much harder to recognize this type of illness a person may have.

Quote:Lingered exposure to smoking is 90% of the risk! pollutants or irritants will no doubt lead to asthmatic bronchitis if the person is already suffering from chronic bronchitis. No definitive link is known about why this is but some physicians say that environmental factors influence the illness. If there is the slightest possibility of you not getting to understand the matter that is written here on Bronchitis Treatment, we have some advice to be given. Use a dictionary!

Symptoms of this Disease are:
* Wheezing * Cough * Difficulty breathing * Chest discomfort * Pain and soreness and * an increased infection vulnerability. This article serves as a representative for the meaning of Chronic Bronchitis in the library of knowledge. Let it represent knowledge well. :o.
  • Misdiagnosis can happen since there are more than one illness associated with the ones listed above.
  • Sometimes, doctors would like chest x-rays to make sure pneumonia is not setting in.
  • This can also lead to the treatment of the disease.
  • Slang is one thing that has not been included in this composition on Bronchitis Treatment.
  • It is because slang only induces bad English, and loses the value of English.

You are Tired of Being Sick and Going It Alone, You First Need an Accurate Diagnosis
It's only then that you'll get the medication you need to heal. Further complications can arise if left untreated for too long. To stave off other complications, it's wiser to face the issue than ignore it. We needed lots of concentration while writing on Chronic Bronchitis as the matter we had collected was very specific and important.

More treatments are: * Oral corticosteroids like prednisolone tablets * Salmeterol, a symptom controller * Oral antibiotics * Anti- inflammatory medicine like Fluticasone
  • Those who suffer from severe chronic bronchitis is capable of developing asthmatic bronchitis as well as those of persistent asthma.
  • Unfortunately, a bacteria infection causes chronic bronchitis but not asthmatic.
  • When particles pass through the cilia of the bronchial tubes, it aggravates this type of condition.
  • Mucus is then produced to cover lungs, soft tissues and trachea by the bronchial tubes.
  • The magnitude of information available on Chronic Bronchitis can be found out by reading the following matter on Chronic Bronchitis.
  • We ourselves were surprised at the amount!

What Treatments are Available for this Illness?
Bronchodilators, antibiotics and steroids can be used to treat the illness. They are not effective in fighting against the causes of the disease but rather the disease itself. Inhalers and bronchodilators only provide temporary relief but with ongoing treatment improvements will be noticeably different. Writing this composition on Bronchitis Disease was a significant contribution of ours in the world of literature. Make this contribution worthwhile by using it.

Oddly enough, several factors can cause this type of disease: * Bronchial Hyperactivity; * Immunologic Abnormalities; and * Severe Childhood Infections

Even though the symptoms of both asthma and asthmatic bronchitis are one in the same, the latter will suffer them with them in larger degrees of intensity. Maintaining the value of Bronchitis was the main reason for writing this article. Only in this way will the future know more about Bronchitis.

Salbutamol or Another Type of Reliever Medicine
Although easier said than done, physicians always advise patients to avoid irritants including dust and pollen. Patients can also get their flu shot as a necessary precaution against any bacteria or virus looking to invade your body.
  • Mucus is created in such an enormous amount that it blocks the air from getting into the lungs very well.
  • This is quite common for those with persistent asthmatic bronchitis.
  • Give yourself a momentary pause while reading what there is to read here on Asthmatic Bronchitis.
  • Use this pause to reflect on what you have so far written on Asthmatic Bronchitis.

When a Disease is Not Treated Early on, It can Always Develop Into Other Forms of Illness
Three things can help establish if you have asthmatic bronchitis. They include, having a clinical exam, a laboratory testing analysis must be done and pulmonary testing. The information available on Bronchitis Treatment is infinite. There just seems to be so much to learn about, and to write about on Bronchitis chest burning.
  • It's typically found to be an association with chronic bronchitis that can develop into asthamtic bronchitis if left untreated.
  • What causes Asthamtic Bronchitis?
  • The completion of this article on Bronchitis Treatment was our prerogative since the past one month.
  • However, we completed it within a matter of fifteen days!

Bronchitis is a Disease that can be Tenacious as a Stubborn Dog
It is caused by a severe inflammation or the blocking of the air tubes in the lungs. Bronchitis generally occurs in two forms: acute or chronic. Acute bronchitis is the lesser condition of the two but it can still last for several weeks and may result in pneumonia if it is not taken care of right away. Chronic bronchitis, on the other hand, can eventually lead to more serious heart problems.

Is a Common Mistake to Take Antihistamines, Antibiotics, or Decongestants for Bronchitis
These drugs do not relieve inflamed windpipes and can even dry the mucus linings of the lungs. They can also make the mucus so thick that coughing can be very difficult and painful. Antibiotics don't usually help because most bronchitis is not caused by bacterial infections. Antibiotics hurt your chances of getting better by killing off friendly micro-organisms and making certain bacteria strains more antibiotic-resistant. A common herbal antidote for bronchitis is to try drinking half a cup of horehound tea three times a day. This can help to thin and release mucus that accumulates in the lungs of bronchitis patients. We needed lots of concentration while writing on Chronic Bronchitis as the matter we had collected was very specific and important.

You can take a number of vitamins to promote healing of bronchitis as well as preventing it. Vitamin A in large doses taken daily for up to 30 days can promote faster healing of irritated mucus membranes and strengthens the whole immune system. Vitamin C taken along with it can boost your immunity also and helps build up better collagen and mucus linings in the lungs. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects your lungs from air pollution. Zinc works with vitamin A to heal lung membranes and other tissues. An herb called astragalus taken daily in small doses can also help reduce symptoms associated with chronic bronchitis.

Bronchitis can be recognized by the following symptoms: frequent and painful cough with phlegm, high fever, sore throat, chest pain, harsh sounds when breathing and chills. Acute bronchitis is the common result of an infection like the flu or an untreated cold. Chronic bronchitis is usually caused by a lung irritant like cigarette smoke, allergies, dust and all other forms of air pollution. The magnitude of information available on Lungs Bronchitis can be found out by reading the following matter on Lungs Bronchitis. We ourselves were surprised at the amount!

There are Many Things You can Do to Prevent the Onset of Bronchitis in Any Form
The most important thing to do is to stop smoking and avoid secondhand smoke. Avoid pollution by staying indoors during smog alerts and refrain from using sprays for cleaning, insect repelling, or deodorizing. These contain a large number of potentially harmful ingredients that can weaken your lung tissues if used too often. If you are sensitive to dairy products, avoid them because they can increase mucus formation. When you notice the beginning of a cough, get plenty of rest and apply mild heat on your chest and back before going to bed. Drink at least eight to 10 glasses of clear water every day and eat foods that are high in vitamin A, C, E and zinc. Foods that are high in these nutrients including eggs, chicken, pecans, citrus fruits, sunflower seeds, broccoli, sardines and avocados. Writing this composition on Bronchitis was a significant contribution of ours in the world of literature. Make this contribution worthwhile by using it.

Asthmatic Bronchitis


Bronchitis is an acute inflammation of the air passages within the lungs. It occurs when the trachea (windpipe) and the large and small bronchi (airways) within the lungs become inflamed because of infection or other causes.

Bronchitis causes discomforts in patient's life, that is why it is important to become aware of the signs and symptoms of this illness to determine if you already have this condition, or if it is time to consult your doctor. Bronchitis is a preventable illness, establishing proper hygiene inside your house and taking care of your health may help you avoid this condition. Having a penchant for Bronchitis Causes led us to write all that there has been written on Bronchitis Causes here. Hope you too develop a penchant for Bronchitis Causes!

Symptoms Talking about the bronchitis symptoms, inflammation takes place in the bronchi and consequently, secretion of mucus occurs in large quantities and gets expelled as phlegm that is sticky. Other symptoms include fever, difficulty in breathing, pain in chest, cough and loss of appetite. Don't be surprised if you find anything unusual here about Bronchitis Acute Bronchitis. There has been some interesting and unusual things here worth reading.
  • Medications for chronic bronchitis include anti-inflammatory medications and bronchodilators.
  • Anti-inflammatory drugs decrease the inflammation in the respiratory tract tissues.
  • There has been an uncalculatable amount of information added in this composition on Bronchitis Symptoms.
  • Don't try counting it!
  • Causes Bronchitis is usually caused by infection with a virus.
  • However, bronchitis may also be caused by bacteria, smoking or the inhalation of chemical pollutants or dust.
  • The most common viruses that cause bronchitis are influenza A and B, The most common bacteria that causes bronchitis is Mycoplasma pneumoniae.
  • We would like you to leisurely go through this article on Causes Bronchitis to get the real impact of the article.
  • Causes Bronchitis is a topic that has to be read clearly to be understood.

Acute Bronchitis Usually Develops on the Heels of a Cold or the Flu
Your body's battle to defeat these infections leaves your bronchial tubes sensitive, irritated, and inflamed, explains Alan P. Brauer, M.D. This impairs the ability of the tiny hairs that line the bronchial tubes, called the cilia, to sweep mucus and other debris out of your respiratory tract. With your bronchial tubes inflamed and your cilia impaired, your body resorts to its coughing mechanism to keep those bronchi clear. There is a lot of jargon connected with Bronchitis Caused. However, we have eliminated the difficult ones, and only used the ones understood by everyone.
  • Cigarette smoking is the most common cause of chronic bronchitis.
  • Chronic bronchitis may also result from a series of attacks of acute bronchitis.
  • Other causes include air pollution and industrial dusts and fumes.

Common symptoms of both kinds of bronchitis are nasal congestion, muscle pains, fever and chills, sore throat, poor sleep, and dyspnea (common in chronic bronchitis). Basically, the symptoms of bronchitis are similar to that of the common cold. It starts with an irritation at the back of the throat and as it gets worse, cough will enter the picture which may come with phlegm. If the phlegm is streaked with blood, it is best to consult a physician. Sometimes, what we hear about Asthmatic Bronchitis Acute can prove to be rather hilarious and illogical. This is why we have introduced this side of Asthmatic Bronchitis Acute to you.

The disease comes in two forms: acute (lasting less than 6 weeks) and chronic (reoccurring frequently for more than two years). In addition, people with asthma also experience an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes called asthmatic bronchitis We have included the history of Bronchitis here so that you will learn more about its history. It is only through it's history can you learn more about Bronchitis.
