  1. How Should One Be Treating The Bronchiectasis? A Brief Bronchiectasis is a lung condition that causes cough, sputum production, and respiratory infections, as bronchiectasis is a condition that develops over many years and worsens with repeated infections.

  2. lung cleanse The healthcare providers will help the patient to figure out the best treatment plan for the person. The two essential parts of bronchiectasis treatment: 1.Maintenance: What one does every day. It usually includes airway clearance and to prevent infections and lung damage. 2.Exacerbation: What one does when one gets sick and had a change in symptoms. It usually includes increasing airway clearance and taking antibiotics to treat an infection.

  3. Airway Clearance Methods A. Chest physiotherapy gets involved by chest clapping in various positions to move the mucus up to the windpipe so that one might cough it out quickly. B. The small handheld positive expiratory pressure (PEP) device loosens up the mucus by creating a vibration when breathing through the device. C. The percussion device includes a mechanical percussor and the percussive vest (which is a high-frequency chest wall oscillation); they loosen up the mucus and move it to the airway to cough it out. D. All the airway clearance forms, depending on an excellent cough to move, loosen the mucus out. One can learn the techniques to improves one cough strength and effort. One wants to bring the mucus up and out of the lungs.

  4. Coughing technique During and after one has used the airway clearance routine; one can use their cough to bring out the loosen phlegm. The common cough technique is known as “huff cough.” It looks similar to breathing fog onto one’s glasses to clean them: one starts taking a deep through one’s nose. It exhales in 3 equal breaths, pulls one’s belly inwards to force the air from the lungs while making a “huff” sound back to one’s throat. One should repeat it two to three times during and after the airway clearance routine.

  5. Nebulized (Inhaled) Medications The medicines can be inhaled to help the airway and loosen the mucus.  The bronchodilator helps to relieve or prevent the spasm of the airway muscles. It is a concentrated saltwater solution that helps loosen up the secretions in a person's airway. Often the inhaled medicines are used before or during the lung cleanse to bring up the loosened mucus.
