What is bronchitis?

What is bronchitis?

Children and the elderly are particularly at risk for bronchitis. Similarly, smokers also have more problems with bronchitis.

Bronchitis causes swelling of the trachea (bronchial tube). As a result, people with bronchitis cannot get enough oxygen or air through their lungs.

Problems with bronchitis are caused by exposure to viruses, bacteria, smoking, or chemicals. When the respiratory tract tissue is stimulated, the noise in it stops working. Due to which mucus (sputum) fills the respiratory tract and becomes more irritated. As a result, people with bronchitis tend to have more coughing problems with darker sputum.

Types of bronchitis

There are two types of bronchitis, acute (acute) bronchitis, and chronic (chronic) bronchitis.

The problem of acute bronchitis is short-lived, caused by bacterial infections, pollution, and chemicals. This problem usually develops after the flu or the common cold. Symptoms include chest problems with sputum. Sometimes there are fever and breathing problems. Acute bronchitis lasts from a few days to a few weeks. The problem of bronchitis is more common in children due to small airways. This problem is also considered common in the elderly.

With chronic bronchitis, the patient may have difficulty breathing. And, this problem is becoming more and more chronic. In which the health condition of the patient is deteriorating day by day. And, the patient may feel tired and have difficulty breathing, and may need artificial oxygen.

Bronchitis has three stages, the first, the second, and the third.

Bronchitis has three stages, the first, the second, and the third.

In the first stage of bronchitis, the cough is normal. In this, the lungs work up to 80 percent. In the second stage, the virus that causes acute bronchitis spreads through the respiratory tract to the lower part of the lungs and produces sputum. Which even makes coughing worse. At this stage, the lungs are 50 to 70 percent functioning.

In the third stage, the viral infection is cured in a few days. However, post-bronchitis syndrome tends to appear in the later stages of bronchitis. In which it takes a long time for the patient to recover from coughing and respiratory problems. At this stage, the lungs can only function 30 to 50 percent.

Why does bronchitis occur?

Acute bronchitis is caused by a virus, which develops after a cold or flu. Chronic bronchitis is caused by smoking. However, chronic bronchitis can also be caused by a recurrent onset of acute bronchitis.
