Information for Patients


Bronchial Disorders

The bronchi are two tubes that branch off the trachea, or windpipe. The bronchi carry air to your lungs.

The most common problem with the bronchi is bronchitis, an inflammation of the tubes. Bronchitis can be acute or chronic. Other problems include

  • Bronchiectasis, a condition in which damage to the airways causes them to widen and become flabby and scarred
  • Exercise-induced bronchospasm, which happens when the airways shrink while you are exercising
  • Bronchiolitis, an inflammation of the small airways that branch off from the bronchi
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia, a condition affecting infants

Treatment of bronchial disorders depends on the cause.

  • Bronchiectasis
  • Bronchiolitis
  • Bronchiolitis - discharge
  • Bronchopulmonary dysplasia
  • Postural drainage
  • Tracheal rupture

Lung Diseases

When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. Millions of people in the U.S. have lung disease. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the United States.

The term lung disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, COPD, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems. Some lung diseases can lead to respiratory failure.

Tracheal Disorders

Also called: Windpipe disorders

Your trachea, or windpipe, is one part of your airway system. Airways are pipes that carry oxygen-rich air to your lungs. They also carry carbon dioxide, a waste gas, out of your lungs.

When you inhale, air travels from your nose, through your larynx, and down your windpipe. The windpipe splits into two bronchi that enter your lungs.

Problems with the trachea include narrowing, inflammation, and some inherited conditions. You may need a procedure called a tracheostomy to help you breathe if you have swallowing problems, or have conditions that affect coughing or block your airways. You might also need a tracheostomy if you are in critical care and need to be on a breathing machine.

NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

  • Blockage of upper airway
  • Swallowing problems
  • Tracheitis
  • Tracheoesophageal fistula and esophageal atresia repair
  • Tracheomalacia - acquired
  • Tracheomalacia - congenital
  • Tracheostomy
