“I constantly have pressure in my chest.” “My breathing always seems to be obstructed.” “Each morning begins with coughing and sputum.”
This or a similar experience is how chronic bronchitis patients describe their disease.
Excess mucus production is blocking the bronchia, a condition which is caused by cigarette smoke, a prolonged cold or industrial pollution allergy. Eventually this can lead to hyperdistention of the lung (emphysema). In this condition tiny air sacs, called lung alveoli, break, and this causes a reduction in the oxygen exchange area.
This development should absolutely be prevented, if possible.
