Because people who suffer from this disease have some exposure to smoking. Once you get COPD, you have it; it's just like contracting HIV.Treatment: Smoking cessation is where you have to stop smoking to avoid higher risks of the disease, Bronchodilator Therapy, which opens up the airways, and pulmonary rehabilitation.Bronchiectasis/Cystic FibrosisThis is a condition where someone develops dilated bronchial tubes, which in turn cause mucus to collect causing infections. These defective clogs the tubes and passageways which in turn obstructs the pancreas from letting important enzymes from breaking down. Some of the symptoms are salty-tasting skin, lung infections, abnormal growth rates in children, and chronic coughing. Treatment: Once you have been diagnosed with Bronchiectasis, you are subjected to: Antibiotics for treating the infection, Thinning medicines for helping you cough the clogged mucus, Hydration moisturizing the airway mucus, and Chest therapy which is done by a respiratory therapist. The latter is more of a physical activity where the therapist pounds over your chest and back over with his hands or device.
