This eight-page illustrated handout educates people about bronchitis, which is inflammation or swelling to the bronchi, the large airways that carry air to the lungs. It explains that there are two types of bronchitis, clarifying that acute bronchitis is treatable but chronic bronchitis, one in a group of lung diseases known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), is a long-term disease that cannot be cured. It identifies signs and causes of bronchitis, and discusses care for the disease and things people can do to breathe easier. The document lists those symptoms for which a doctor should be called, as well as symptoms for which 911 should be called immediately.
