Fast, easy bronchitis treatment
AFC Sarasota provides on-site bronchitis treatment. Bronchitis is an infection that inflames the bronchial tubes, which direct air into your lungs. There are two types of this condition: acute bronchitis (aka a chest cold) and chronic bronchitis. The former usually develops after some sort of respiratory infection and clears up within 10 days. Chronic bronchitis, however, can develop due to other factors such as a smoking habit and requires immediate medical attention.

Bronchitis has some very distinct symptoms, including:
Cough that produces mucus (may contain blood)
Shortness of breath
Lethargy/lack of energy
Bronchitis vs Pneumonia: What's the Difference?
While these two conditions have much in common regarding their symptoms, they actually are quite different in the body parts they affect. Oftentimes, bronchitis can lead to pneumonia, but they are by no means the same thing.
Bronchitis is the inflammation of the bronchial tubes either by viral infection or by other irritating substances. The bronchial tubes are responsible for passing air to your lungs, so when they become inflamed, it causes respiratory issues and fever.
Pneumonia, on the other hand, is an infection of the air sacs contained within your lungs. While these differences may sound insignificant, they are not -- pneumonia carries more severe symptoms and can be life-threatening, especially to the elderly.
