Screening and diagnosis

To diagnose bronchitis, your doctor will likely listen to your chest with a stethoscope. You may also be asked to have a chest X-ray and perhaps a sputum culture — a test that checks for the presence of bacteria in sputum produced when you cough.

In some cases your doctor may recommend additional tests to rule out other causes for your symptoms, including a pulmonary function test (PFT) that checks for signs of asthma or emphysema. During a PFT, you blow into a device called a spirometer, which measures the volume of air in your lungs after taking a deep breath and blowing it out. The spirometer also shows how quickly you can get air into your lungs. The test is painless and takes just a few minutes. If you have repeated bouts of bronchitis and your doctor doesn't suggest a PFT, ask to have one done.

Complications

Although a single episode of bronchitis isn't cause for concern, repeated bouts of bronchitis should be taken seriously. They may signal chronic bronchitis, asthma or other lung disorders. Having chronic bronchitis also increases your risk of lung cancer.

In addition, researchers are investigating the link between asthma and mycoplasma and chlamydia, two of the infectious organisms responsible for bronchitis. Respiratory infections can trigger asthma attacks in people who already have asthma, but scientists now wonder whether chlamydia or mycoplasma organisms also may actually cause asthma. Some evidence also suggests that chlamydia infection might act as a trigger for coronary artery disease, stroke and severe high blood pressure.
