Tracheitis or Bronchitis

The trachea is a wide musculo-cartilaginous membranous tube constituting a part of a respiratory passage. The mucosa lining the trachea is innervated by the recurrent laryngeal nerve and, in the region of its bifurcation, by the pulmonary plexus. Tracheitis is an infection of your trachea. A tracheitis or bronchitis gives rise to a raw, burning sensation deep to the sternum instead of actual pain. It’s an important part of your body’s airway system. Many thoracic and abdomen viscera, when diseased, give rise to the discomfort that is relit in the midline. It scene, that organs possessing a sensory innervation that is not under normal conditions directly relayed to consciousness display this phenomenon. The afferent fibers from these organs traveling to the central nervous system accompany autonomic nerves. It is an inflammation of the lining of your bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from your lungs.
