Understanding Bronchitis

Bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes, the airways that carry air to your lungs. Symptoms typically include coughing up mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest discomfort. Bronchitis can be acute, lasting a few weeks, or chronic, with recurrent episodes that last for months or even years.

Our Bronchitis Management Services Include:

  • Comprehensive Evaluation: A thorough assessment to determine the type (acute or chronic) and severity of your bronchitis.
  • Personalized Treatment Plans: Development of individualized treatment strategies that may include medication (such as bronchodilators and steroids), pulmonary rehabilitation, and oxygen therapy, if necessary.
  • Lifestyle Guidance: Recommendations on lifestyle changes to reduce symptoms and prevent future episodes, including smoking cessation, avoiding lung irritants, and practicing good hygiene.
  • Respiratory Therapy: Techniques to help clear your airways and improve lung function.
  • Ongoing Monitoring and Support: Regular check-ups to monitor your condition and adjust your treatment plan as needed.
