How is Bronchitis Diagnosed?
Before we can provide bronchitis treatment, we have to diagnose the condition. To do so, one of our providers will conduct a physical examination. He or she will ask about your symptoms and medical history and listen to your chest and lungs with a stethoscope. Further testing isn’t usually necessary but may be ordered to rule out pneumonia, which is often mistaken for bronchitis.
How is Bronchitis Treated?
Bronchitis refers to the inflammation of the bronchial tubes’ lining and is often caused by a viral infection that will clear up on its own within a few weeks. However, treatment can be prescribed to alleviate symptoms and help you recover faster. Our team is dedicated to providing individualized care and will work with you to develop a bronchitis treatment plan that works for you. Depending on the severity of your condition, we may recommend:
- Cough medicine
- Over-the-counter pain medication
- An inhaler
- Using a humidifier
- Avoiding lung irritants, such as smoking
- Wearing a face mask while outside
