When it persists for more than three months each year for at least two years, in combination with sputum production and without another explanation, it is by definition chronic bronchitis.

An acute exacerbation a sudden worsening of symptoms [48] is commonly triggered by infection or environmental pollutants, or sometimes by other factors such as improper use of medications.
