March 2002 What Causes Chronic Bronchitis? Who Gets Chronic Bronchitis? How Serious Is Chronic Bronchitis? How Chronic Bronchitis Attacks ...

Cigarette smoking is by far the most common cause of chronic bronchitis. The bronchial tubes of people with chronic bronchitis may also have been irritated initially by bacterial or viral infections. Air pollution and industrial dusts and fumes are also causes.
Once the bronchial tubes have been irritated over a long period of time, excessive mucus is produced constantly, the lining of the bronchial tubes becomes thickened, an irritating cough develops, air flow may be hampered, and the lungs are endangered. The bronchial tubes then make an ideal breeding place for infections.
WHO GETS CHRONIC BRONCHITIS? Over 8.8 million Americans are diagnosed with chronic bronchitis annually. The prevalence rate of chronic bronchitis has been consistently higher in females than in males. Chronic bronchitis affects people of all ages, but is higher in those over 45 years old. No matter what their occupation or lifestyle, people who smoke cigarettes are those most likely to develop chronic bronchitis. But workers with certain jobs, especially those involving high concentrations of dust and irritating fumes, are also at high risk of developing this disease.

    There are two types of bronchitis: acute and chronic. Acute bronchitis is the inflammation of the mucous membrane that lines the bronchi (brawnk-eye), or main passages of the lungs, and usually only lasts a few days. It is often caused by a viral infection and may begin after you develop a cold or sore throat. The first symptom is an uncomfortable cough which often produces a thick yellowish or grayish phlegm (flem). Other symptoms include pain in the upper chest, wheezing, and fever. Make yourself comfortable and avoid cold air, tobacco smoke, and air pollution. Inhaling steam from a running shower or vaporizer may help to clear nasal passages. Your doctor may also recommend cough medicine, antibiotics, and bed rest. Chronic bronchitis usually persists for long periods of time and occurs most often in heavy smokers or as the result of recurring episodes of acute bronchitis. People with chronic bronchitis should not smoke and should avoid cold, polluted, and smoky environments. They should also stay away from people with colds, which could lead to another attack of bronchitis. Treatment depends on how far the disease has progressed, but will probably include an inhaler and antibiotics. For more information about bronchitis, contact your health care provider.

    Chronic Bronchitis: Primary Care Management
    A patient information handout on chronic bronchitis , written by the authors of this article, is provided on page 2376. C hronic bronchitis is one of the principal manifestations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. About 10 million Americans are affected by some degree of COPD; it causes 40,000 deaths annually. Chronic bronchitis is a clinical diagnosis characterized by a cough productive of sputum for over three months' duration during two consecutive years and airflow obstruction. These requisites exclude more transient causes of cough associated with sputum production, such as acute bronchitis. The airflow obstruction in chronic bronchitis is caused by excessive tracheobronchial mucus production and is distinct from the anatomic findings of distal air space distention and alveolar septa destruction, which define emphysema. Cigarette smoking is the most important risk factor for the development of chronic bronchitis. Over 90 percent of patients with chronic bronchitis have a smoking history, although only 15 percent of all cigarette smokers are ultimately diagnosed with some form of obstructive airway disease.

    6. Chronic Bronchitis
    What Is Chronic bronchitis? bronchitis is an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes. These tubes, the bronchi, connect the windpipe with the lungs.
    Chronic bronchitis What is chronic bronchitis? It is a persisting inflammation of the bronchial tree (air passages) of the lungs. It is a potentially dangerous problem because it starts so quietly that many people do not realise that they have it. Repeated irritation thickens and damages the delicate lining of these important tubes. This leads to lots of mucus and thus narrowing of the tubes. What are the symptoms? The main symptom is a morning cough with sputum (phlegm). Smokers may consider this to be a normal smokers' cough, but there is nothing normal about it. As time goes by, this productive cough increases. Later on, wheezing and breathlessness become a problem. If you are breathless when you exert yourself, you probably have significant lung damage. What are the causes?
    • Smoking is the main cause. People who work in dusty atmospheres are also at risk. Air pollution is a minor factor.
    At first the bronchitis gets worse with bad colds or influenza, but eventually even a mild cold can bring on a nasty flare-up. Colds or other infections can cause deterioration, especially in winter. However, chronic bronchitis is not caused by chronic infection. It is usually caused by chronic irritation from smoke. What are the risks?

    The disease is a chronic inflammation of bronchi due to infection, physical and chemical irritations and allergic agents. The majority of the patients are of over middle age. It is characterized by chronic course and recurrent episodes. In some chronic cases, the disease may progress to chronic obstructive emphysema and chronic pulmonary heart disease. In TCM, this disease is related to the categories of "ke sou" (cough), "tan yin" (phlegm retension), "xiao chuan" (asthma) and so on. Main Points of Diagnosis 1. Long-term cough, sputum production and dyspnea which attack repeatedly and fluctuate are worse in autumn and winter. There may be fever, exacerbation of cough and mucopurulent sputum production, and dyspnea is more marked if acute concurrent infection is present. 2. Chronic bronchitis usually persists for many years. It can be classified into 3 stages, acute episodic stage, chronic persistent stage and clinically remissive stage. The last stage may last for a period of time and an attack may be induced by infections or catching a cold. Based on the clinical manifestations, the disease can be divided into simple chronic bronchitis and chronic asthmatic bronchitis. In the former, cough and sputum production are predominant. In the latter, in addition to the above symptoms, there are dyspnea and wheezing, indicating that the spasm of the smooth muscles of bronchi and bronchioli is an important pathogenic factor.

    A patient information handout on acute bronchitis , written by the authors of this article, is provided on page 1281. Acute bronchitis is a lower respiratory tract infection that causes reversible bronchial inflammation. In up to 95 percent of cases, the cause is viral. While antibiotics are often prescribed for patients with acute bronchitis, little evidence shows that these agents provide significant symptomatic relief or shorten the course of the illness. In a few small studies, bronchodilators such as albuterol have been found to relieve some symptoms of acute bronchitis. Increased attention is being given to the role of Chlamydia species in acute bronchitis and adult-onset asthma. Studies in progress may help to clarify the importance of these organisms in acute bronchitis and to determine whether early treatment can prevent or ameliorate asthma. A cute bronchitis is one of the most common diagnoses made by primary care physicians.

    Chronic Bronchitis What is chronic bronchitis?
    Chronic bronchitis is an inflammation, or irritation, of the airways in the lungs. Airways are tubes in your lungs that air passes through. They are also called bronchial tubes. When the airways are irritated, thick mucus forms in the tubes. The mucus plugs up the tubes and makes it hard for you to get air into your lungs. Symptoms of chronic bronchitis include a cough that produces mucus (sometimes called sputum), trouble breathing and a feeling of tightness in your chest. What causes chronic bronchitis? Cigarette smoking is the main cause of chronic bronchitis. When tobacco smoke is breathed into the lungs, it irritates the airways which then produce mucus. People who have been exposed for a long time to things that irritate their lungs, like chemical fumes, dust and other substances, can also get chronic bronchitis. How does my doctor know if I have chronic bronchitis? Your doctor will ask you about your symptoms: Are you coughing up mucus? Are you having trouble breathing? Does your chest feel tight? Do you smoke cigarettes? How many cigarettes do you smoke each day? How many years have you been smoking? Have you been breathing in other things that can irritate your lungs? If your doctor thinks you have chronic bronchitis, you may be tested to find out if your lungs are damaged. You might have a pulmonary function test to see how well your lungs are working. With this test, you breathe into a machine that measures the amount of air in your lungs. Your doctor may also order blood tests and a chest x-ray.
