What is Bronchitis?

Bronchitis may be describes as inflammation of the bronchi tubes.  The inflammation may cause swelling of the lining of these breathing tubes, narrowing the tubes may promote secretion of inflammatory fluid.

Bronchitis is characterized by coughing and production of sputum. Coughing may be a reflex that works to clear secretions from the lungs.  Both adults and children could get bronchitis and symptoms appear similar for both.

Asthmatic bronchitis occurs when asthma and bronchitis coexist.  Asthma is an inflammatory airway condition that leads to tightening of the muscles around the airways.  Both asthma and bronchitis cause the airway to narrow.  In combination with the inflammation of the airways and mucus production, this could lead to coughing, wheezing and short of breath.
