Acute Bronchitis - Chronic Cough With Phlegm
Cough is a sudden and repetitive reflex that helps clear the large breathing passages from secretions, irritants, foreign bodies, and microbes. It is important to note that, it is not a disease, but a self-defense mechanism of the body, which is triggered by the presence of unwanted particles in the respiratory tract. Coughing can be a voluntary or an involuntary action. Phlegm is a sticky, slimy secretion, produced to get rid of the foreign body. Phlegm, also called post nasal drip, is a manifestation of cold, sinusitis, and pneumonia, which leads to excessive mucus in throat. All of us have suffered from phlegm, which may be as a result of common cold, bronchitis, or an infection. Chronic cough and phlegm should not be neglected, as it can be a result of a serious lung condition. As a matter of fact, cough with phlegm is better than persistent cough with no secretion, as accumulation of phlegm can lead to chest infection or other health complications.
  • Treatment It is necessary, that the cause of wet cough is detected to rule out any serious medical condition.
  • The methods used to diagnose the condition include chest X-rays, sputum analysis, and blood tests.
  • To stop a sinus cough, you must strictly avoid all those allergens that can increase coughing.
  • Smokers should stop smoking.
  • Non-smokers should avoid exposure to secondhand smoking.
  • There are some foods that increase mucus production.
  • They are caffeine, desserts, dairy products, fatty foods, etc.
  • When you are suffering from sinus cough, you must either stop eating all these substances or at least minimize their intake until the cough subsides.
  • The worst part of a sinus cough is that it worsens at night as the post nasal drip drains at the back of the mouth when you lie done.
  • Coughing at night can be controlled by elevating the head with a few extra pillows.
  • You may say that we have included exquisite information here on Bronchitis.
  • This is with the intention of producing a unique article on Bronchitis. :o

Quote:Home Remedies Remember, even after you have determined the cause, and your cough persists despite making use of the above-mentioned home remedies, it is recommended that you visit a doctor for further treatment. This is the counterpart to our previous paragraph on Cold Bronchitis. Please read that paragraph to get a better understanding to this paragraph.
  • Cough can be of different types like dry, mucus-producing, persistent, whooping, 'barky', wheezing, etc.
  • Describing the exact type of cough can help in diagnosing the underlying cause quickly.

Meningitis - It is the inflammation of the membranes (meninges) that cover the brain and the spinal cord. High fever, severe headache, stiff neck, seizures, confusion, etc., are the common symptoms. Coughing and other flu-like signs are the lesser known symptoms. It is only because that we are rather fluent on the subject of Fever Bronchitis that we have ventured on writing something so influential on Fever Acute bronchitis copd signs this!
  • Influenza (Flu) - It is a viral infection, severe than common cold.
  • Dry cough, fever, sore throat, body ache, headache, etc., are the identifying symptoms.

Strep Throat (Streptococcal Pharyngitis)
It is a bacterial infection in the throat. Symptoms include high-grade fever, severe throat pain, dry cough, white or red spots on the back of the throat. It is only through sheer determination that we were able to complete this composition on Cough. Determination, and regular time table for writing helps in writing essays, reports and articles.

Treatment You should consult the doctor and get the underlying cause diagnosed immediately. Prescription medications, cough syrup, etc., help in treating cough in minor cases. In case, if you suffer from any of the aforementioned disorder, the doctor will prescribe the related treatment method. Staying away from allergens, airborne pollutants, etc., can help in treating chronic cough. Over-the-counter cough medications should not be given to babies and children without consulting the doctor. Several home remedies are also effective for treating cough and mild fever.

Sometimes, the Doctor May Try to Reach the Clot With the Help of a Catheter
The catheter is a flexible tube inserted into the upper thigh (groin) or arm through a vein to allow access to the bloodstream for treatment of the clot in the lung. Through the catheter the doctor can either extract the clot or inject medicine to dissolve the clot. Very rarely is surgery opted for, to remove the clot. Only patients suffering from recurrent embolism require to undergo surgery.

Severe Coughing: Another cause of broken ribs is severe and prolonged coughing, which can cause extended pressure on the rib cage. Especially, if a person has pneumonia or bronchitis, then severe coughs can lead to broken ribs. Although there was a lot of fluctuation in the writing styles of we independent writers, we have come up with an end product on Bronchitis Disease worth reading!

What to Look for
What is the type of cough? Is it dry, mucus-producing, 'barky', persistent, hacking? Does the cough occur throughout the day, or only at night? When a child shows a flicker of understanding when talking about Lungs, we feel that the objective of the meaning of Lungs being spread, being achieved.

Diagnosis It is not easy to diagnose pulmonary embolism, because the symptoms are not specific enough. There are blood tests that can help understand if a person is prone to DVT or PE, however, it does not detect a clot. Moreover, a regular X-ray will not spot the clot. The Duplex Doppler ultrasound method is used to check the rate of blood flow in the veins of the legs and also to identify blood clots in lungs.
