  • Acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis

    Acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis (AECB) is a disease that commonly affects patients with COPD or chronic bronchitis and is characterised by unstable lung function and decreasing airflow. During AECB, the patients experience severe difficulty in breathing suddenly. This occurs as a result of further narrowing of airways and secretion of large amounts of mucus that is thicker than usual. AECB is caused by exposure to irritants like pollen, cigarette smoke and toxic chemicals during chronic bronchitis or COPD.
