Tip #1

These respiratory conditions can frequently heal by using homeopathic remedies, annulling the necessity of antibiotics administration.

Tip #2

People diagnosed with acute bronchitis need to drink plenty of water and fruit juices, stop smoking for good, take plenty of rest, relax as much as possible, and use humidifiers in their houses. The doctor prescribes medicines such as acetaminophen if the disease is accompanied by mild fever and pain. Sometimes, aspirin is also taken. However, pregnant women and children should not take aspirin because it is suspected to cause heavy bleeding in pregnant women and Reye's syndrome in children.

Tip #3

Bacterial infections need to be medicated using antibiotics and should be taken together with an expectorant cough syrup. This syrup helps expel harmful bacteria from the lungs. Antihistamines should not be used as they work against the expectorant cough syrup. They thicken the mucous making it hard for it to be expelled out of the lungs. For a successful recovery from a bronchitis infection, medication should be taken after having gotten proper prescription from the doctor. The medication should be taken at the right time and the right dosage.

Tip #4

Bronchitis takes part of the disease grouped under COPD which means chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. If the disease doesn't respond to treatment it can progress to COAD (chronic obstructive airway disease). In this case tiny lung air sacs break down to form larger air spaces. At the same time, because of this change, the surface area available for the transfer of the oxygen to the blood is much less. So the other organs are less oxygenated. the mucus block the smaller bronchial tubes which becomes inflamed.

Tip #5

Bronchitis is caused by the inflammation of the medium sized airway, also called the large bronchitis. The causes are smoking, inhaling dangerous fumes and pathogens such as bacteria and viruses. When this occurs, symptoms such as an expectorant cough, wheezing, fever, fatigue, headaches, shortness of breathe and occasional chest pains are experienced.

Tip #6

Smoking is not the only major cause of chronic bronchitis although the ailment is commonly seen among regular smokers. Smoking in itself does not cause the disease; but it facilitates the multiplication of bacteria and thereby slows the healing process in the respiratory tissues. Continuous exposure to pollutants such as hazardous chemicals, smoke, or dust is responsible for chronic bronchitis.

Tip #7

Most individuals who experience some type of respiratory condition are usually diagnosed with bronchitis. Bronchitis is one of the most common of all respiratory illnesses and it can affect anyone, as age does not matter. Bronchitis does tend to have a higher incidence in people who smoke, people with some type of respiratory insufficiency and people that have weak immune systems. The usual symptoms of bronchitis are also similar to many of the other respiratory illnesses and because of this, it can be difficult for the doctor to make the correct diagnosis.
