Bronchitis Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchi, the air passages that extend from the windpipe into the lungs. When the bronchi are inflamed or infected, a heavy mucus or phlegm is formed in the airways causing less air to flow to and from the lungs. There are two main types of bronchitis: Acute and Chronic.
Acute bronchitis is usually a short illness that may follow or accompany the flu. Commonly it will develop from a severe cold or other viral infection, or through exposure to a toxin or contaminant such as cigarette smoke. Acute Bronchitis is characterised by a cough with phlegm, pain in the centre of the chest, shortness of breath and possibly a mild fever and will last for about 10 days.
Chronic bronchitis is defined by an excessive mucus producing cough and that lasts 90 days or more and recurs year after year. Individuals with chronic bronchitis are more susceptible to bacterial infections of the air pathways and lungs, like pneumonia.
