After a respiratory infection such as a cold or influenza can appear the inflammation of the bronchi of the lungs. This phenomenon describes a disease called Bronchitis.It develops with a persistent cough that produces high quantities of sputum.

The agents that cause Bronchitis are in most of the cases viruses such as coronarvirus, adenovirus or a rhinovirus. These viruses attack the lining of the bronchial tree. As a response to the infection caused by the virus the body starts fighting against it and the glands produce more mucus which is very hard to evacuate.
