Some cases of bronchiectasis can’t be prevented; other cases CAN be prevented by getting treatment for lung infections right away. Getting help right away means there is less chance for long-term lung damage.
Get vaccinated: to avoid getting some childhood infections. You should get all of your childhood vaccines and get your flu shot every year.
Make sure you manage your lung disease. Call our lung health information helpline ( 1-888-344-LUNG) and make sure you are managing your disease properly.
