Bronchitis

Respiratory-Your respiratory system is made up of the organs in your body that help you to breathe.

The respiratory system does this through breathing.When we breathe, we inhale oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide. This exchange of gases is the respiratory system's means of getting oxygen to the blood.Respiration is achieved through the mouth, nose, trachea, lungs, and diaphragm.

The lungs and respiratory system allow oxygen in the air to be taken into the body, while also enabling the body to get rid of carbon dioxide in the air breathed out.

Disease
Inflammation of the mucous membrane in the bronchial tubes. It typically causes bronchospasm and coughing.

Bronchitis (pronounced: brong-KYE-tis) is an inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, the airways that connect the trachea (windpipe) to the lungs. This delicate, mucus-producing lining covers and protects the respiratory system (the organs and tissues involved in breathing).

For either acute bronchitis or chronic bronchitis, signs and symptoms may include:Cough. Production of mucus (sputum), which can be clear, white, yellowish-gray or green in color — rarely, it may be streaked with blood. Fatigue. Shortness of breath. Slight fever and chills. Chest discomfort.

The main goals of treating acute and chronic bronchitis are to relievesymptoms and make breathing easier. If you have acute bronchitis, your doctor may recommend rest, plenty of fluids, and aspirin (for adults) or acetaminophen to treat fever. Antibiotics usually aren't prescribed for acute bronchitis.
