Respiratory tract infections

Acute bronchitis — inflammation of the bronchial passages

Acute bronchitis is caused by inflammation of the bronchial passages. It is one of the most common diagnoses in general medicine. Acute bronchitis occurs most frequently in spring and autumn. It affects all ages although it is most common in children, the elderly and those with a compromised immune system.

Viruses cause 90% of all cases of acute bronchitis. Initially, the viruses cause a common cold, which then moves from the upper respiratory tract into its deeper, lower areas. It is not unusual for a viral infection to be followed by bacterial bronchitis.

EPs® 7630 has proven its efficacy in bronchitis treatment in numerous clinical studies. With its triple mode of action against viruses, bacteria and thick mucus, EPs® 7630 reduces overall bronchitis symptoms effectively.

Symptoms of acute bronchitis generally start some three or four days after the common cold.

Symptoms may include some or all of the following:

  • A cough, which is the primary symptom of acute bronchitis. This may be dry at first (”non-productive”, which means without producing mucus) and after a few days may lead to a ”productive cough” with mucus expectoration.
  • A general feeling of fatigue.
  • A sensation of tightness, burning or even a dull pain in the chest under the breastbone. This is generally more pronounced when breathing deeply or coughing.
  • A slight temperature (high fever may indicate pneumonia).
  • Wheezing, especially during physical exercise.
  • Hoarseness.

Should symptoms persist, a doctor should be consulted to prevent the development of chronic bronchitis.

One in three inadequately treated cases of acute bronchitis develops into chronic bronchitis.
