About Chronic Bronchitis

Chronic bronchitis is a common respiratory condition characterized by the inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to excessive mucus production and persistent coughing. It is usually caused by long-term exposure to irritants such as cigarette smoke, air pollution, or occupational hazards.

Effective Treatment Options

At West Coast Pulmonary & Sleep, we understand the impact chronic bronchitis can have on your quality of life. Our experienced healthcare professionals are committed to providing personalized and comprehensive treatment options. With a focus on managing symptoms, reducing frequency and severity of exacerbations, and enhancing overall lung function, our approach ensures long-term relief and improved well-being.


In many cases, medication is prescribed to help manage symptoms and control inflammation. Bronchodilators, which relax the airway muscles, and corticosteroids, which reduce airway inflammation, may be included in the treatment plan. These medications can help alleviate coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.

Pulmonary Rehabilitation

Our pulmonary rehabilitation programs are designed to improve lung function, enhance exercise capacity, and promote overall respiratory health. Through a combination of exercise, education, and breathing techniques, patients can regain control over their breathing and experience an improved quality of life.

Oxygen Therapy

In cases where the oxygen levels in the blood are low, supplemental oxygen therapy may be recommended. This non-invasive treatment can significantly improve breathing and alleviate symptoms, allowing patients to engage in daily activities with greater ease.

Lifestyle Changes

We believe in empowering our patients to take control of their health. Our dedicated team of healthcare professionals can provide guidance on lifestyle modifications that can help manage chronic bronchitis effectively. This may include smoking cessation programs, avoiding exposure to irritants, maintaining a healthy weight, and staying physically active.
