Bronchitis is an infection of the main respiratory tract of the lungs or bronchi which causes inflammation or inflammation of the channel. This condition is included as a respiratory disease. The following are some of the symptoms caused by bronchitis:
- Cough with grayish or green yellow mucus
- Sore throat
- Hard to breathe
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Pain or discomfort in the chest
- Mild fever
This disease is caused by the same virus in flu and often the flu causes acute bronchitis. There are 2 types of bronchitis :
Patients usually recover within a few days, but the cough can last for more than a few weeks.
coughing conditions that occur every day and produce phlegm that lasts for at least 3 months, 2 consecutive years. This disease is also a risk of causing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Bronchus is an airway in the respiratory system that carries air to the lungs and vice versa. The bronchial wall produces mucosa or mucus to hold dust and other particles that can cause irritation so as not to enter the lungs.
Acute bronchitis comes from lung infections which are mostly caused by viruses. Irritation and inflammation causes the bronchi to produce more mucosa or mucus. And the body tries to remove excessive mucus or mucosa by coughing.
The most common cause of chronic bronchitis is smoking. Every cigarette suction has the potential to damage the small hairs in the lungs called cilia hair. Cilia hair serves to dispel and sweep out dust, irritation, and mucosa or excessive mucus. After a while, the content of cigarettes can cause permanent damage to the cilia and bronchial wall lining. When this happens, dirt cannot be removed and discharged normally. Mucus and dirt that accumulate in the lungs make the respiratory system more susceptible to infection.
There are many risk factors for acute bronchitis, namely:
- Smoker. If you smoke or live with a smoker, you have a higher risk of developing acute bronchitis and chronic bronchitis.
- Weakened immune system: this can occur due to acute symptoms such as flu or chronic medical conditions. Elderly people, babies under 12 months of age, and children are very susceptible to respiratory infections due to the weakness of the immune system.
- Exposure to chemicals at work: the risk of developing bronchitis increases if you work in polluted areas such as grain factories, textile factories, or exposed to chemical fumes.
- Abdominal reflux: severe heartburn and irritating your throat will make you susceptible to bronchitis.
- Age: people over 50 years old, at risk of developing this disease.
