Respiratory tract infections

Respiratory tract infections

Respiratory tract infections are divided into upper or lower respiratory tract infections. Upper respiratory tract infections are rarely serious. They include e.g. rhinitis (common cold), sinusitis, sore throat, ear infections and laryngitis. Lower respiratory tract infections are usually more serious. They affect the breathing tubes (trachea and bronchi) and the lungs. Bronchitis, acute bronchiolitis and pneumonia are all types of lower respiratory tract infections.
