How is bronchiectasis treated?

Bronchiectasis is treated with a combination of physical exercises and techniques designed to remove excess mucus from the airways and restore and maintain lung function, and medications that fight infection and inflammation and help dilate the airways and thin the mucus, making breathing easier. In some serious cases, lung surgery or lung transplantation could be an option.
