D, Broncliiectasis is a lung disease Dear Dr. Lamb I would like some information on the disease bronehiectasis. How can it be diagnosed to deter- mine if one has it' What are the symptoms? Is there a spe- cial treatment for it? Can it be cured? Dear Header Bronchiec- tasis is a disease of the lungs. lower broncial tree is usually involved, the person should as- sume a position iwth the head down so the collected secre- tions can drain out, just like emptying a bottle. A minimum of 3d" minutes a day of postural drainage is advised. The big- gest complication is infection and appropriate antibiotic treatment is often necessary. The laree trachea or windpipe I separates into right and At! In certain cases, surgical re- bronchi for the right and left lungs. These continue to branch out like a tree into smaller and smaller a i r passageways. moval of the affected bronci is advisable. Whether to use med- ical or surgical treatment has to be decided in each individual smaller air j Cflse after a careful evaluation These are called the bronchi. When the wall of these or any part of the hroncial tree begins to dilate too much and become a saccular or dilated structure, i it is called bronchiectasis. The iBrmal elasticity of the bronchial tubes affected is lost. The smalle hairlike projections and ways of moving out bron- chial secretions is lost. The net result is that lung secretions pool in the enlarged dilated bronchial tubes. This gives rise to the most common symptom a chronic cough. The cough usually brings up fluid oflen at least two tablespoons a day and some- tunes much more. In the early stages, the fluid is relatively odorless, but as the disease progresses and more fluid is trapped, or ii there is an asso- ciated infection, the fluid can develop a foul odor. The two most common symptoms of bronchieclasis are a chronic cough and coughing up a lot of sputum. The patient may otherwise feel well, unless a lot of the lung is involved. Less commonly, a person may have "dry bronchiectasis" with a cough but no sputum. These individuals sometimes bleed and start coughing up blood. A plain X ray of the chest usually shows evidence of fhe disease. It is wise for indivi- duals with bronchiectasis to minimize the probability of res- piratory infections. That means staying away from people with "colds."
