Bronchiectasis

What Is Bronchiectasis?

Bronchiectasis is a disease that causes the airways inside the lungs to scar and widen, greatly reducing the ability of the lungs to clear out mucus. The mucus can then build up and form a blockage, creating a haven for bacteria growth and greatly increasing the risk of infection and inflammation.

This, in turn, can make breathing difficult and prevent vital oxygen from reaching life-sustaining organs.

Who is at risk?

The disease can affect both men and women, though women tend to develop it more often. In fact, two-thirds of bronchiectasis patients are women. The non-congenital version of the disease can affect both adults and children, whereas the congenital version affects only children.

For more information about bronchiectasis and the treatment options that the Lung Health Institute can provide, contact one of our patient coordinators today at (855) 882-1292 to schedule a free consultation.
