With the drastic increase in pollution around us, many of our organs are facing various side effects. Of all these, respiratory diseases are the most common disease. During the cold winter season, people suffering from Asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory diseases faces more difficulty. Usually, we breath-in with our nose. When we breath-in air around us, it gets warm in the nose and then combines with steam and passes through Bronchus. At the end of trachea, Bronchus is cleft into two parts named as bronchi. These bronchi are cleaved & inserted separately into the lungs existing at the either end of the chest cavity, and from there it reaches alveolar ducts present in lungs and ends over there. When we breath, micro-organisms present in the atmosphere enter into the lungs. Of which, a major part of organisms enters into the bronchitis. The inner part of Bronchus consists of a mucus membrane. If the mucous membrane undergoes swelling or inflammation, because of any reason, then it is called as bronchitis.
