The poisons in tobacco very readily find their way into the bloodstream, and anything that affects the blood affects every organ and tissue of the body. It greatly harms the blood corpuscles, has a very damaging effect on the nervous system, causing poor circulation. Smoking is not only the main cause of cancer of the lungs, it also causes other serious lung diseases such as emphysema and bronchitis.

Too much emphasis cannot be placed upon the fact that people who use tobacco in any form will finally find their bodies in a weakened and diseased condition. Medical workers see the truth of the above statements lived out before their eyes every day. life is short. Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life. Even the crooks have to be intelligent!

There are many different methods when diagnosing bronchitis. The procedures used to diagnose bronchitis are painless and very simple. All you have to do is see a doctor if you think you have any bronchitis and he/ she will do some test to see if indeed you suffer from bronchitis.

Antibiotics are not very information wheezing bronchitis, because this condition, especially acute bronchitis is caused by a virus. For more resources about bronchitis or especially about bronchitis treatment please visit ***** Bronchitis, especially acute bronchitis is a condition that does not last more than a couple of weeks at the most. Acute bronchitis also heals on it' s own, with only little help from you or your doctor. In normal cases a single bronchitis episode must not be a cause for concern, but it all depends on the persons' s health. In some bronchitis cases, pneumonia can develop, after you have developed bronchitis. The bronchitis patients who are more at risk of developing asmathic bronchitis complication are smokers, older people and persons that already have a respiratory condition. Infants are also more at risk of developing pneumonia as a result of bronchitis. If you have more than one bout of bronchitis, you should see a doctor. More than one bronchitis episode can be a cause for concern to you. These repeated bronchitis episodes may indicate that the illness has turned into something more serious, like chronic bronchitis, asthma or even other lung problems. Chronic bronchitis must be treated seriously, because this type of bronchitis increases your risk of developing cancer. The sources used for the information for this article on Bronchitis Asthma are all dependable ones. This is so that there be no confusion in the authenticity of the article.

The doctor will probably listen to your chest if you think you have bronchitis. This is the most simple way to diagnose bronchitis. If he/ she is still not very sure if you do have bronchitis, you might also have do have an X- ray to the chest. Because the main symptom of bronchitis is a cough with sputum, this mucus must also be tested to see what caused the bronchitis. This ilness, bronchitis may be causes by a virus, the same one that causes the cold or by a bacteria. By anodizing the sputum that you cough up when suffering from bronchitis, your doctor will be able to see if the bronchitis is caused by bacteria. Futrthermore, because the bronchitis symptoms are very similar to those of other medical conditions, your doctor will have to run some other testes in order to rule any other health problems besides bronchitis. The conditions which have similar symptoms to those of bronchitis are asthma, pneumonia or emphysema. It was with great relief we ended writing on Bronchitis Symptoms. There was just too much information to write, that we were starting to lose hopes on it's completion!

The RESPIRATORY SYSTEM DAMAGE

The long-term effects of air pollution include serious diseases like cancer. The highly polluted city air slowly metamorphoses our healthy and pink colored lung tissues into darkened particles of smog, dust, and other pollutants, making the lungs more vulnerable to infection. The highly sensitive respiratory system can be damaged in a number of ways.

These substances settle down in the lungs' mucous layers. It takes almost an hour for the paralyzed cilia to recover. But repeated paralyzing from the heated tar eventually kills them. Mucus builds up as a result of repeated smoking. The accumulated mucus blocks the smaller air passages. The obstruction triggers the 'smoker's cough'. This familiar reflex cough is the distressed lung's effort to clear the air routes.

GOVERNMENT & NGO MONITORING of POLLUTION

All the governments have their independent agencies to monitor the pollution levels. There are also non-governmental agencies (NGOs) that carry out this activity. The OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) in USA, for instance, issues regulations for protection of workers. It has made mandatory the wearing of air masks with filters for certain jobs. The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) monitors and also regulates the pollutants released into the air by different organizations and industries. In spite of such efforts, across the world, various types of respiratory illnesses have registered a rise. Maintaining the value of Bronchitis was the main reason for writing this article. Only in this way will the future know more about Bronchitis.

Respiratory Distress Syndrome: It is also called RDS. The dysfunction refers to a cluster of symptoms. All point to severe malfunctioning of lungs. IRDS: Premature infants may suffer from Infant Respiratory Distress Syndrome (IRDS). IRDS happens when the alveoli fail to fully expand during inhalation. Alveoli expansion needs a chemical called surfactant. However, among the premature infants, the undeveloped alveoli fail to produce enough surfactant. The common treatment for IRDS is administration of air and surfactant through a breathing tube. This administration enables the alveoli to produce surfactant.

Laryngitis: Laryngitis is an inflammation of the larynx. Laryngitis is caused by various factors. They can be diverse like voice overuse, cigarette smoke or viral infection. Laryngitis leaves different effects on the voice. Till the inflammation subsides, it can either get hoarse, or get reduced to a whisper. Writing this composition on Bronchitis was a significant contribution of ours in the world of literature. Make this contribution worthwhile by using it. Very Happy.

Emphysema: This non-contagious disease affects alveolar tissue gets partially destroyed. The remaining alveoli gets enlarged and weakened. During exhalation, the bronchioles collapse. As a result, air remains trapped inside the alveoli. In the long run, emphysema affects the patient's ability for exchanging oxygen and carbon dioxide. The circulatory system also fails to function. This causes breathing problems. Emphysema can occur due to genetic factors besides infection, smoke, smog, and cigarette. Wink

Hay fever & asthma: These are allergic reactions of the respiratory system. These conditions are caused when the immune system is irritated by irritants like dust or pollen. The symptoms of hay fever are sneezing, watery eyes, and runny nose. It is a seasonal reaction when there is abundance of pollens in the air. Asthma attacks are generally mild. But, they can be life threatening too. A person suffering from asthma experiences difficulty in breathing. It occurs as the bronchi and bronchioles get inflamed and remain constricted temporarily. Give yourself a momentary pause while reading what there is to read here on Bronchitis. Use this pause to reflect on what you have so far written on Bronchitis. Embarassed



  • Bronchitis: Bronchitis refers to membrane inflammation.
  • The membranes lining the bronchioles or the bronchi get inflamed.
  • Bronchitis occurs due to bacterial or viral infection.
  • Bronchitis can also happen from irritating chemicals.



Environmental pollution: One of the potent dangers is the environmental pollution. The environment smog contains many chemicals. Many of these chemicals are exhausted by the vehicles and the industries. What is more, several household cleaning products also emit such poisonous gases.

Pneumonia: This infection of the alveoli is caused by viruses or bacteria. Pneumonia is a potentially serious state of the lungs. In pneumonia the alveoli gets inflamed after fluid builds up. This gathering of fluid and the consequent inflammation impedes the flow of carbon dioxide and oxygen between the alveoli and capillaries.

ALTERNATIVE TREATMENT for RESPIRATORY DISEASES

Many traditional and alternative health systems like Yoga, Ayurveda, Unani and Homoeopathy have various means of treating the different types of respiratory disorders. Yoga has simple breathing exercises called 'Pranayam' that have proven track records. The other alternative health systems like Ayurveda, Unani and homoeopathy also have viable strategies to effectively treat the respiratory ailments. The information available on Bronchitis is infinite. There just seems to be so much to learn about, and to write about on Bronchitis.

Tuberculosis: Also known as TB, it is caused by the tuberculosis bacterium. The lungs are primarily attacked in TB. At times, other body tissues also get affected. Unaddressed, the lung infection can even destroy the lung tissues. Earlier, tuberculosis was controlled by antibiotics. However, the bacterium has evolved an antibiotic-resistant strain posing a grave health problem. The completion of this article on Bronchitis was our prerogative since the past one month. However, we completed it within a matter of fifteen days!

Nilutpal Gogoi is a writer and a freelance journalist having more than 18 years of service in several audio-visual and print media reputed organizations in North East India. He has published more than 1000 articles and a popular adventure book for children. This can be considered to be a valuable article on Bronchitis. It is because there is so much to learn about Bronchitis here. Embarassed

Cigarette smoke: This is yet another dangerous emission. The passive smokers are the hardest hit. Burning fags pose a serious threat to our respiratory system. Tobacco smoke contains over 40 chemicals including the dangerous tar. Most of them are known causes of cancer. Approximately 90 per cent of lung cancer cases among men, and more than 70 per cent among women have been traced to smoking.


Lung cancer: The main cancer causing agents are uranium, asbestos, and tobacco smoke. Genetic reasons can also cause cancer. The respiratory cancerous tumors are formed in the lung tissue (alveolar), the bronchioles or the bronchi. Early detection of such tumors can halt their progression to other parts of the body. Then the treatments are more effective, and the prognosis for recovery is rather good. Unfortunately, 85 per cent of the lung cancers are diagnosed at a later stage when the tumors have already spread. In such extreme cases, the prognosis is poor. Using great confidence in ourselves, we endeavored to write such a long article on Bronchitis. Such is the amount of matter found on Bronchitis. Laughing


DISORDERS & DISEASES of the RESPIRATORY SYSTEM

Any portion of the respiratory tract can be affected by the disorders and diseases of the respiratory system. Though the common ailments of the respiratory system are trivial, yet at times they can be life threatening as well.



  • Occupational risks: Many professionals are daily exposed to impurities released by their activities.
  • These workers run a high risk of suffering from respiratory diseases.
  • Mention may be made of people picking cotton, those working in work in farms or shipyards, mechanics installing brake insulation or lining.
  • Other people who suffer from such risks are miners, construction workers, quarry workers, stone cutters, and sandblasters among others.



Common cold, running nose & stuffy nose: Viruses cause colds by targeting the pharynx and the nasal passages. First, the viruses infiltrate the body through the respiratory system. Then, they target the cells in the nasal passage membranes. But before they can destroy the cells, the body's immune system fights back. The immune system increases the flow of blood to the area. Such reinforcement of white blood cells leads to swelling of the membranes. This causes the stuffy nose. Increase in mucous secretions to neutralize the viral attack leads to the runny nose. Mentionably, the infection can affect the sinuses -- membrane-lined cavities located within the head, besides the middle ear and the lower respiratory tract. The sources used for the information for this article on Bronchitis are all dependable ones. This is so that there be no confusion in the authenticity of the article.

Indoor Air Pollution:

This is one of the most dangerous but often disregarded dangers. The offices and homes are mostly bases of indoor air pollution. Many cleaning compounds besides furniture and synthetic carpets, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and even air fresheners emit hazardous gases. These remain highly concentrated in unventilated or AC rooms. The most vulnerable sections of people exposed to these respiratory dangers are children, elderly people and those having a history of respiratory illnesses. These people generally spend most of their time within the four walls. The indoor air pollutants not only weaken our lungs but also invite infections.



  • ARDS: Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) occurs when the lungs get severely injured.
  • Many automobile accidents, poisonous gases, or lung inflammation can cause such a dysfunction.
  • ARDS patients generally have to battle for life with 50 per cent survival rate. Laughing



Besides tar several other chemicals enter our lungs from a burning cigarette. The tar from a single cigarette temporarily immobilizes the cilia of the upper and lower tracts of the respiratory route. The tar also temporarily paralyses the macrophages in the lung alveoli. When the cleansing and filtering functions are made inactive, the lungs and the air passages are laid bare to the different particles, viruses and bacteria that are airborne besides of course the tar.
