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:
The signs and symptoms of all forms of Bronchitis are similar except for the degree of persistence of the disease. Additionally, Asthmatics may be more prone to either Acute or Chronic Bronchitis due to their increased sensitiviy to inflammation of the airways:
According to the Health Insurer Cigna, the symptoms of Acute Bronchitis usually begin to show up about 3-4 days after a patient contracts an infection of the upper respiratory tract, due to a cold or flu virus. In rare cases a bacterial infection may be involved.
The most common symptom of Acute Bronchitis is a Dry Cough, although Mucus may be produced from the lungs after a few days. Mucus may be Clear or Colored. White mucus is often associated with a viral infection, whereas yellow-gray or green colored mucus may indicate a bacterial infection.
Other Symptoms of Acute Bronchitis include:
In many cases of Acute Bronchitis, your cough will normally go away within a few days. However, it is not uncommon for a cough to persist for several weeks, but it should eventually resolve itself. If your cough remains for over 3 weeks you should consult with your physician.
Since Asthmatic Bronchitis is the occurrence of Acute Bronchitis in an Asthma patient, the symptoms of Asthmatic Bronchitis are exactly the same as the symptoms of Acute Bronchitis.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Chronic Bronchitis may be defined by a productive cough that lasts at least 3 months for 2 consecutive years.
In cases of Chronic Bronchitis, patients may experience Acute Exacerbations, which are periods when their symptoms get significantly worse. This may often be due to occurrence of (short-term) Acute Bronchitis on top of their long-term condition.
Apart from the persistence of symptoms and occurrence of Exacerbations, the signs of Chronic Bronchitis are essentially the same as the symptoms for Acute Bronchitis.
Many patients that have contracted Chronic Bronchitis are also afflicted with Emphysema, which is a disease of the alveolar tissue within the lungs. Consequently, these COPD patients also experience the Symptoms of Emphysema
Asthma patients who develop Chronic Bronchitis are essentially subject to the same signs and symptoms of their disease as non-Asthmatic patients. See the information about Chronic Bronchitis Symptoms above, and also find out more about the Symptoms of COPD.
