"Bronchial pneumonia happens when the pneumonia spreads to several patches in the lungs. Bronchial pneumonia is prevalent in infants, young children and aged adults and it is usually caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae. Bronchial pneumonia also called as bronchopneumonia involves inflammation of the bronchial tubes due to infection. Bronchial pneumonia is not confined to a single anatomic location.
Whatever the case maybe, the symptoms are typical, which causes cough (with or without mucus), rapid breathing, chest pain, and shortness of breath. In addition to these symptoms, fever, headaches, sweats, and weakness are usually present. The cells in the body, need oxygen to survive and when one breathes, the oxygen travels through the nose or mouth into the lungs via air canals known as bronchi.
Both left and right lungs are spongy in nature and are located underneath the rib cage on either side of the chest cavity. Pneumonia causes inflammation (irritation, swelling) or infection of the lungs that leads to formation of fluid and pus to fill a section (Lobar pneumonia) or form patches in both lungs (Bronchial pneumonia.), thus interfering with the uptake of oxygen.
Bronchial pneumonia is triggered in people with immune defense system that is weak, and most often by a simple viral upper respiratory tract infection or a case of influenza.
Bronchial pneumonia that is caused by a cold or flu is known as 'walking pneumonia'. If your immune system is already compromised, pneumonia can be life-threatening. Viruses or bacteria usually cause pneumonia, however, some types of fungi and parasites can also cause it. Breathing in chemical fumes can also cause pneumonia."
