BRONCHITIS Overview

WHAT IS BRONCHITIS?


Bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes,which carry air to and from your lungs. Usually the cold or flu completes its course in few weeks and you are again healthy and without any symptoms but when the infection spreads to bronchial tubes it causes swelling and inflammation there producing more mucus and timid cough. Along with that it would also produce tightness in the chest with short breathing accompanied by sound while breathing (wheezing). Low grade fever can also be seen.


Types of bronchitis


a)Acute bronchitis and b)chronic bronchitis


Acute bronchitis: commonly follows a cold or viral infection,such as the flu.It consist of cough with mucus,chest discomfort or soreness, fever and sometimes shortness of breath. Acute bronchitis usually lasts a few days or weeks.


Chronic bronchitis: is a serious,ongoing illness characterized by a persistent,mucus-producing cough that lasts longer than 3 months out of the year for more than 2 year.

If chronic bronchitis occurs with emphysema, it may become chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).


How does it spread

  • By airborne respiratory droplets
  • By saliva(kissing or hugs)
  • By skin to skin contact
  • By touching a contaminated surface

RISK FACTORS

There are several things which can increase the risk of bronchitis:

  • Smoking: active or passive is going to increase the risk of bronchitis- acute or chronic.
  • Fumes: ladies cooking in villages with coal and wood are more at risk of developing bronchitis as they are exposed very frequently to fumes from buring coal and wood.
  • Exposure to irritants: irritants like chemicals, dyes, textile irritants, wood residues etc can also predispose to bronchitis.
  • Poor hygiene: would expose to recurrent infections and would predispose to bronchitis.
  • Heartburns: more acidity would induce more cough due to irritation in throat and food pipe.

COMPLICATIONS


The major complication of bronchitis are:

  • Respiratory failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Enlargement and weakness of right heart ventricle of the heart caused by lung disease.
  • Pneumothorax (collection of air or gas in lungs causing lung collapse)
  • Polycythemia 
  • COPD
  • Emphysema
