This nhn Bronchitis Guide includes information about Acute Bronchitis, Chronic Bronchitis, Asthmatic Bronchitis, and Chronic Asthmatic Bronchitis that is written primarily to help Bronchitis Patients better understand their condition and the range of Bronchitis treatment options that are currently available:
According to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, in order to to diagnose Bronchitis, a physician must perform a physical examination, listen for wheezing with a stethoscope, and evaluate your other symptoms - making sure they are not due to Pneumonia or other conditions. A sample of sputum from a cough may be examined, because its color - clear or white versus yellow or green - may suggest whether the Bronchitis is due to a Viral infection or a Bacterial infection, respectively. Your physician may require further testing, depending upon your particular symptoms and risk factors:
Acute Bronchitis Diagnosis
Acute Bronchitis is one of the most common diagnoses for which patients seek medical attention. However, diagnosis of Acute Bronchitis is usually based upon clinical findings without any recourse to quantitative laboratory testing.
If you exhibit the symptoms of Bronchitis your physician should examine you for presence or absence of:
* In order to diagnose Acute Bronchitis your doctor will need to rule out other conditions with similar symptoms. A Chest X-ray may be required to rule out Pneumonia or Heart Failure. If the cough has lasted more than 2 months, a chest X-ray may be also be used to screen for another lung disease - such as Lung Cancer.
** If you present the risk factors for Chronic Bronchitis, such as long-term smoking or occupational exposure to irritants, your doctor may suggest Spirometry to quantitatively define your Pulmonary (Lung) Function.
Asthmatic Bronchitis Diagnosis
A diagnosis of Asthmatic Bronchitis is made when an Asthma patient is diagnosed with Acute Bronchitis.
Chronic Bronchitis Diagnosis
If you exhibit Bronchitis symptoms and present the risk factors associated with Chronic Bronchitis, your doctor will need to screen for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Patients suffering from Chronic Bronchitis usually also suffer from Emphysema, and these diseases are now considered under the general term COPD. Diagnosis of COPD requires a quantitative assessment of Pulmonary Function, using Spirometry - see COPD Diagnosis for more information.
Chronic Asthmatic Bronchitis Diagnosis
A diagnosis of Chronic Asthmatic Bronchitis is made when an Asthma patient is diagnosed with Chronic Bronchitis.
