Is the inflammation of the trachea (windpipe) and bronchi
(airways) within the lungs due to an infection, bacteria or other
cause. The mucous lining within the
airways become irritated and
swollen. The mucous cells leak extra mucous in response to the
inflammation. This series of event causes coughing which is a reflex
that works to clear the extra secretion from the lungs. Anyone can have
it but smokers, individuals with a weakened immune system, individuals
exposed to constant lung irritants and the elderly can be more
susceptible to it. There are two types of bronchitis acute and chronic.
Acute: An infection that usually last several days or weeks and is
caused by a secondary infection of the bronchi by viruses or bacteria
e.g. cold or influenza.
Chronic: is a prolonged and persistent irritation of the mucous lining
this produces a cough that can last at least three months.
