Acute Bronchitis Consultation
Acute bronchitis is an inflammation of the bronchial tubes, the air passages that lead to the lungs. It is usually caused by a viral infection and can also be caused by bacterial or environmental irritants. Symptoms include cough, shortness of breath, and chest discomfort. The condition is usually self-limiting and resolves within a couple of weeks, but in some cases, it can lead to complications such as pneumonia. Treatment typically involves relieving symptoms with over-the-counter medication and getting plenty of rest. In some cases, antibiotics may be prescribed if a bacterial infection is suspected.
