Chronic Bronchitis

Chronic Bronchitis is an incurable condition that does not improve even if smoking is stopped. The cough of chronic bronchitis will diminish within weeks of smoking cessation and usually disappears entirely within three months.

What is Chronic Bronchitis?

The bronchi are air passages connecting the windpipe (trachea) with the sacs of the lung (alveoli) where oxygen is taken up by the blood. Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchi causing excessive mucous production and swelling of the bronchial walls. Many people suffer a brief attack of acute bronchitis with fever, coughing, and spitting when they have a severe cold. Chronic bronchitis, however, is the term applied when this coughing and spitting continue for months and returns each year, generally lasting slightly longer each time. Undue breathlessness on exertion is eventually noticed, due to obstruction to airflow in the air passages caused by swelling of the bronchial wall and the presence of mucus that cannot be cleared. Emphysema is a disease in which there is the destruction of the walls of the air sacs of the lung, and it is frequently preceded by chronic bronchitis. Emphysema adds to the breathlessness suffered by the patient with chronic bronchitis.
