Asmatic bronchitis is caused by untreated bronchitis. This is a medical condition where either of the large bronchus tubes are inflamed causing chest congestion, difficulty in breathing, coughing and wheezing.
The usual symptoms of bronchitis which are fatigue, fever, cough, wheezing, headache and respiratory problems are pronounced. Having chronic bronchitis for a long period of time is likely to lead to asmatic bronchitis because of the persistent irritation of the hair-thin structure found in the bronchial tubes as well as the accumulated mucus inside.
As of today, though asthma is a prevalent disease, no known cure has been developed yet. This is the reason why it’s important to prevent bronchitis from developing into this worse form.
Consult an ear-nose-throat medical specialist if the symptoms of bronchitis are visible for over a month already. Persistent and continuous irritation of the airways often results in the augmentation of mucus around the bronchus’s cilia. This obstructs air passage in and out the respiratory system. This causes shortness of breath, coughing and wheezing that leads to asthma in the long run.
Inflammation in the air passage causes blockage in the bronchial tube which is essential in filtering the air that enters the body’s respiratory system. Asmatic bronchitis is ultimately triggered by this relentless irritation caused by the blockage.
If you notice a loved one or friend with these symptoms extending for over a month, better get that person treated by a specialist at the soonest possible time. This way, the complications of asthma and pneumonia are kept at bay.
