Bronchus refers to the main or primary airway that emanates from the main wind pipe or respiratory tract. This part is also broken up into secondary and tertiary bronchus or smaller tubes known as bronchioles. It diverges to the left as well as the right side.
HOW IS BRONCHUS DIAGNOSED?
Any damage, infection, or inflammation of the bronchus can be diagnosed by the pulmonology specialist with the help of chest scans and X rays, as well as various lab tests in case blood comes up with persistent coughing and a tight chest. Also, pulmonary lung function tests can be conducted to check the functioning of the bronchus.
HOW IS BRONCHUS TREATED?
The method of treatment is mainly based on the type of disease and its severity. Common conditions like Asthma and bronchitis can be treated with antibiotics, oxygen therapy and pulmonary rehabilitation programs. dangerous conditions like tumours in the bronchus can be removed by surgical interventions like bronchoscopic surgery or open lung surgery. Video assisted thoracic surgery and laser bronchoscopy are two latest methods, which is used to treat tumours by excising them out.
