Form of bronchitis disease
The swelling and infection of the respiratory tracts beneath the inner parts of lungs is called bronchitis. In such a condition, the inner walls of the respiratory weaken taking shapes of balloon or cylinder in stead of a capillary. Due to the swelling, the phlegm begins forming more than normal. The weaker walls of the respiratory tracts become unable to flush out the accumulated phlegm. Its ill result is that phlegm accumulates in excess of its normal level obstructing the capillaries. Owing to this obstruction, the lungs get damaged and shrunken or expands after taking the shape of a balloon. This incapacitates the normal functions of the respiratory tracts and the lungs inviting bronchitis disease to spread tentacles..
Types of bronchitis

There is one more type of bronchitis as well apart from the above type i.e. ‘Protracted bacterial bronchitis’ which cures up on taking anti bacterial drug.
