Tips to Relieving Your Bronchitis All on Your Own

Bronchitis is a disease that can affect the lungs, but usually only the respiratory system is the one affected. There are two types of bronchitis: acute and chronic bronchitis. Both of them can be treated at home, but the chronic bronchitis poses a little more problems than the acute type. Very Happy.

Using a Vaporizer or a Humidifier is a Very Good Idea

These help your airways stay moist. A worm bath can also do you very good. Another trick is to stay away from any things that can irritate your respiratory system, such as chemicals, paint, dust, and so on.

Your symptoms get worse after a couple of days, the smart thing to do is see a doctor. Now, let me answer you a question that I believe it is in everybody' s mind: what is the difference between bronchitis and pneumonia. Well, they are both respiratory diseases, but there are lots of differences between them. To better understand this, let us talk about each one of them. There has been an uncalculatable amount of information added in this composition on Types Bronchitis. Don't try counting it! Embarassed

Another useful trick is not to take any pills that suppress your cough. When you have acute bronchitis acute you cough, mucus is brought up together with your cough, and believe it or not this is a good thing. If you take cough suppressants, mucus can buildup and cause serious complications, like pneumonia. Another medication that must not be taken is antihistamines. Instead of making you feel better, they can do a lot of damage. These medication dry your airways and cause the phlegm to thicken up, which can make your condition even worse than before. Having a penchant for Bronchitis Pneumonia led us to write all that there has been written on Bronchitis Pneumonia here. Hope you too develop causes cures for bronchitis Pneumonia!

Bronchitis and its effects the lungs, but the passage that carry the air from the trachea to the lungs. These airways can get inflamed of irritated, but they either get better on their own or with treatment. This condition is not a life threatening one, although it may have some serious complications. Very Happy.



  • As it is an illness that affects the respiratory system, here are some tricks to make your breathing a little easier if suffering from bronchitis.
  • Drinking a lot of fluids every day can help you very much.
  • Fluids can help in keeping the mucus very thin, therefor easy to cough up.
  • The best thing to drink in such conditions is water.
  • Sugar products or dairy's are better to be avoided, because they have a tendency to weaken your immune system and even produce more mucus.
  • We would like you to leisurely go through this article on Acute Bronchitis to get the real impact of the article.
  • Acute Bronchitis is a topic that has to be read clearly to be understood.



Is quite common for cats to present to veterinary clinics with a chronic cough or wheeze. The problem may be constant or just recur from time to time, and can range from mild to severe. Clinically the disease may resemble human asthma, asbury theological seminary asthma can be misleading as there are a number of different possible causes. Here we look at what those underlying causes can be, and the different forms of treatment available to affected cats.

Aerosol therapy has the advantage that the maximum concentration of drug is delivered to the target site. This means that lower overall doses can be used, and the cat is less likely to suffer the negative side effects of steroids. Various inhalers can be used in both cats and dogs, but they tend to be designed for humans. As a result, higher doses are given compared with human medicine, as humans can be instructed to breathe deeply whereas cats will breathe normally at best. The best way of gaining knowledge about Chronic Bronchitis is by reading as much about it as possible. This can be best done through the Internet. Embarassed


Bronchodilator drugs used in inhalers include Salbutamol and Salmeterol. Salbutamol is very fast acting and therefore useful in a crisis caused by spasm of the bronchi. However, it only lasts for about 30 minutes and is therefore unsuitable for chronic therapy as frequent dosing is required. Salmeterol on the other hand is longer acting, and lasts for about 12 hours so twice daily dosing is possible. Salmeterol is better for long term control of mild to moderate asthma while Salbutamol is better for relief of acute bronchospasm. Never be reluctant to admit that you don't know. There is no one who knows everything. So if you don't know much about Bronchitis, all that has to be done is to read up on it! Wink


To return to the comparison with human asthma, when trying to understand the underlying causes it is important to differentiate between asthma (constriction of the bronchi), chronic bronchitis (oversecretion of mucus with a chronic cough) and COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease). Asthma is reversible bronchial constriction caused by eosinophil cells, whereas COPD is irreversible bronchial constriction involving neutrophil cells. People always think that they know everything about everything; however, it should be known that no one is perfect in everything. There is never a limit to learning; even learning about Infectious Bronchitis.



  • Treatment The aims of treatment are as follows. 1.
  • Eliminate any suspected infectious agents.
  • This may be a sufficiently long course of antibiotics if bacterial infection is suspected, or a wormer such as fenbendazole if lungworm is suspected.
  • Variety is the spice of life.
  • So we have added as much variety as possible to this matter on Bronchitis to make it's reading relevant, and interesting! Rolling Eyes



Pulmonary Edema

Often due to severe heart disease.Infectious bronchitis. This can be due to bacteria, viruses or parasites.Pleural disease. Filling of the space between the lung and the chest wall with air or an effusion.Cancer. This can be a primary lung tumor or metastatic spread.Potassium bromide induced respiratory disease. A side effect from an anti-epileptic drug.Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Responds poorly to treatment.Pulmonary thromboembolus. Lodging of a clot in a respiratory blood vessel causing sudden onset breathing difficulty.Pulmonary hypertension. Usually secondary to other heart or respiratory disease. Every cloud has a silver lining; so consider that this article on Bronchitis to be the silver lining to the clouds of articles on Bronchitis. It is this article that will add more spice to the meaning of Bronchitis. Idea

Cats Usually Present With One or All the Following Signs:

CoughingWheezingDifficulty breathing A minority of cases will have the classic human status asthmaticus, rapid onset breathing difficulty due to severe narrowing of the bronchi. Cats tend to be middle aged or older, and Siamese cats may be more prone than other breeds.

Treatment Lifelong?

Generally yes. Doses can often be reduced gradually once clinical remission has been achieved. As with many chronic conditions, complete control might not always be possible and an acceptable quality of life is the main aim of the treatment. Did you ever believe that there was so much to learn about Infectious Bronchitis? Neither did we! Once we got to write this article, it seemed to be endless.

Lung Biopsy

This is an invasive procedure that carries a significant risk to the patient. It is only indicated where diffuse cancer or extensive fibrosis is suspected, or in severe disease that responds poorly to treatment. Smile



  • Radiography The next test performed is usually thoracic radiography.
  • This is best performed under general anesthetic so there is lee chance for motion blur, though in acute situations this is not possible.
  • This is where the most meaningful information can be gained.



The Pathology

Little is known about the underlying causes or exacerbating factors in feline asthma. There may be an element of genetic predisposition. While chronic inhalation of airway irritants, such as smoking, has been shown to cause bronchitis in humans, this has not been studied in detail in cats. Likewise, allergens such earlham college, housedust mites, dander, fungal spores, dust and cat litter could all be implicated theoretically. We worked as diligently as an owl in producing this composition on Infectious Bronchitis. So only if you do read it, and appreciate its contents will we feel our efforts haven't gone in vain.

Glucocorticoid drugs (steroids) used in inhalers include Beclometasone, Fluticasone and Budesonide. Beclometasone is cheap, but is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream when you want it to hang around in the area where it applied. Fluticasone is more expensive, but tends to stay where you want it to. Budesonide is relatively inexpensive and though it is easily absorbed into the bloodstream, it tends to be removed the first time it goes through the liver. Go ahead and read this article on Chronic Bronchitis. We would also appreciate it if you could give us an analysis on it for us to make any needed changes to it.

Bronchoalveolar Lavage

This is similar to the technique described above, but the catheter is inserted all the way into a lower airway before the saline is injected and withdrawn. This is therefore a good test for lower airway disease. Learning about things is what we are living here for now. So try to get to know as much about everything, including Bronchitis whenever possible.

Bronchoscopy Bronchoscopy allows visualization of the larger airways, and assessment for increased mucus and inflammation. 4. Tracheal wash This involves injecting a small amount of saline into the trachea and immediately withdrawing it, and then examining the cells and debris harvested under a microscope. There is sure to be a grin on your face once you get to read this article on Chronic Bronchitis. This is because you are sure to realize that all this matter is so obvious, you wonder how come you never got to know about it!


Your Skin When You Stand in the Sun and Miss When You Walk Into the





Diagnosis 1. Clinical examination The first step in the diagnostic protocol is a thorough clinical examination by a veterinarian. This should localize the origin of the disease to the upper airways, lower airways or pleural space. If the cat is found to have pleural disease, a needle may be inserted straight away to remove either air or a sample of the effusion for both diagnosis and short term treatment of the respiratory distress. The more readers we get to this writing on Infectious Bronchitis, the more encouragement we get to produce similar, interesting articles for you to read. So read on and pass it to your friends. Shocked



  • The Seretide Evohaler is useful for cats requiring both steroid and bronchodilator therapy.
  • It contains salbutamol and fluticasone, a combination allowing minimal dosing frequency. Smile



Remove or Avoid Airway Irritants

The most obvious one is ensuring the cat has no contact with cigarette smoke, and purchasing dust free cat litter. Reading is a habit that has to be cultivated from a small age. Only if one has the habit of reading can one acquire more knowledge on things like Bronchitis.
