The Lung Disease
Children and the elderly are particularly at risk for bronchitis. Similarly, smokers also have more problems with bronchitis. This causes swelling of the trachea (bronchial tube). As a result, people with this disease 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 this disease tend to have more coughing problems with darker sputum.
Types of Bronchitis
There are two types of bronchitis, Acute and Chronic. 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 is a fever and breathing problems.
Acute lasts from a few days to a few weeks. The problem of this disease is more common in children due to the 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, first, second and third. In the first stage of this disease, the cough is normal. In this, the lungs work up to 80 percent. In the second stage, the virus that causes 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 this disease. In which it takes a long time for the patient to get cough and respiratory problems to be cured. At this stage, the lungs can only function 30 to 50 percent.
Why does Bronchitis occur?
Acute is caused by a virus, which develops after a cold or flu. However, chronic develops due to smoking. However, chronic bronchitis can also be caused by a recurrent attack of acute . In addition, exposure to air pollution, dust, toxic gases, and chemicals can cause bronchitis.
