Lightbulb RE: Bronchitis Acute Bronchitis
Bronchitis - Do You Have the Flu, or Just a Cold?
It's important for you to know the difference between the symptoms of a regular seasonal cold and the flu. If you wake up sneezing and coughing, with a fever and feeling like you don't want to move out of bed, you could just be suffering from a cold that will last a couple of days and pass, or you could have a respiratory infection that will just get worse without treatment.

Quote:Respiratory Infection: The individual affected with this infection will have croup, which is a violent, hacking cough that may produce little or no mucus. The cough can progress from a dry cough to productive cough with mucus. This cough often worsens at night. Nasal congestion, wheezing, difficulty in breathing, and sore throat are some of the symptoms of walking pneumonia. Once the cold gets worse and the disease settles into the chest, it can cause chest congestion and pain. In some cases, people with walking pneumonia may have bronchitis, which is caused by the inflammation of the mucous membrane of the bronchi. There is a lot of jargon connected with Bronchitis. However, we have eliminated the difficult ones, and only used the ones understood by everyone.

An Overview
Genus Klebsiella is a part of Klebsiellae tribe that belongs to the bacterial family Enterobacteriaceae. They are non-motile and rod-shaped bacteria. They are Gram-negative, encapsulated bacteria. The capsule that covers a Klebsiella cell helps provide them resistance to many antibiotics. These bacteria have two types of antigens on the surface of the cell. These antigens include the lipopolysaccharide (O antigen) and the capsular polysaccharide (K antigen). There are around 9 O antigens and 77 K antigens present on a Klebsiella cell. This helps divide the organism into different serotypes based on antigenicity. Among the different species of the genus Klebsiella, Klebsiella pneumoniae is the most medically important bacterial species. Klebsiellae are ubiquitous organisms and are able to colonize the gastrointestinal tract, pharynx as well as the skin.

Why Do We Need to Cough Up Mucus?
Though expectoration is a mechanism that the body employs for expelling foreign substances, it could sometimes be a symptom of a health problem. Scroll down to find out about the medical conditions that may cause accumulation of phlegm. Sometimes, what we hear about Bronchitis can prove to be rather hilarious and illogical. This is why we have introduced this side of Bronchitis to you.

Refers to a problem with breathing air outside from your lungs and stands for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. Asthmatic bronchitis, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema are three of the serious disorders which are grouped together as COPD. Both asthmatic and chronic bronchitis occur when the large airways or bronchi are inflamed and swollen. Asthmatic bronchitis, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema develop as an outcome of one or more of these variables: States that can make these diseases worse are frequent colds or illnesses in the nose, sinus, throat, or chest.

What Is COPD? Smile

COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary (PULL-mun-ary) ailment, is a progressive disease that makes it difficult to breathe. Long-term exposure to other lung irritants such as chemical fumes, air pollution, or dust may promote COPD. At precisely the same time, carbon dioxide (a waste gas) goes from the capillaries into the air sacs. In COPD, less air flows in and out of the airways because of one or more of the following: In America, the term "COPD" comprises two primary conditions emphysema (em-fih-SE-mother) and chronic bronchitis (bronKItis). This damage may also ruin the walls of the air sacs, leading to larger and fewer air sacs instead of many tiny ones. Most people who have COPD have both emphysema and chronic bronchitis.

The history holds the principal part in distinguishing among asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. A private or family history of atopy, a history of seasonal worsening of disorder in response to some known environmental agent, possibly seasonal, and marked variability in the severity of airflow obstruction, usually with dramatic responsiveness to bronchodilator drugs, firmly support the diagnosis of asthma. Exacerbation of following the ingestion of asthma forms, and a drug or wheezing by exposure to cold air, such as nocturnal cough responsive to bronchodilator agents or exercise-induced asthma, all support the investigation of asthma. Cigarette smoking is a standard background factor in emphysema and chronic bronchitis, and both diseases are infrequently detected in the lack of this history. As new information collects on the pathogenesis, prevention, and treatment of asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema, precise diagnosis is not unlikely to acquire increased value.
