Asthma is a chronic condition of the lungs which makes it difficult to breath at times. This condition can be potentially fatal if the airways constrict to a point where the brain does not get an adequate supply of oxygen.

What is Asthmatic Bronchitis?

Asthmatic bronchitis refers to the chronic inflammation of the air passages that lead to the lungs (bronchi). At times of increased irritation the bronchi constrict and collect mucus, which makes it difficult to breathe. Coughing, wheezing, and tightness in the chest may accompany this.

Is Asthmatic Bronchitis Curable?

Although there is no cure, the condition can be managed by limiting the contaminants that you breathe in. People with asthmatic bronchitis are more sensitive to irritants such as cigarette smoke, pollen, dust, chemicals, and pollution. They should also have a bronchodilator on hand in case a sudden asthma attack makes it difficult to breathe.
