Management

General management for patients with acute bronchitis is with symptomatic therapy such as nonnarcotic cough suppressants or decongestants. Attempting to limit exposures to dusts is the best treatment approach in managing patients with chronic bronchitis. Evidence suggests that the form of chronic bronchitis with airway obstruction seen in farmers may not respond to P-agonist bronchodilator medication. No clinical studies have been specifically done to assess therapeutics of treating chronic airway disease related to organic dust. Current medication regimens are based on studies related to chronic bronchitis secondary to cigarette smoking (97,98).
