In acute bronchitis, the lung infection causes symptoms of fevers, chills, coughing and a pain in your chest. The symptoms will last a few days and the coughing perhaps may last as long as three weeks. In general, though, acute bronchitis does not last long and is not something that is severe.
However, if symptoms come back time and time again then it can lead to more serious conditions such as emphysema, asthma or even chronic bronchitis. These serious conditions need medical attention as soon as possible.
This book will help you understand what bronchitis is, what it can lead to and if you are at risk. You will learn:
· What symptoms to look for
· When to seek a doctor’s help
· How diagnosis happens
· What’s likely to happen if bronchitis goes without treatment
· Chronic bronchitis and emphysema
· COPD and surviving its effects
· Pulmonary rehabilitation
· Diet, nutrition, lifestyle changes
· Herbal help, alternative tools for relief
Acute bronchitis is nothing more than a very bad cold. But, chronic bronchitis is a life threatening condition that can continue to worsen without any treatment. The good news is that if you catch it early enough, the progression of the disease can be lessened. In fact, you can survive it if you do what you need to.
