Overview

Effective measures for the primary prevention of adult bronchiolitis include the cessation of exposure to inhalants, prevention of smoking, vaping and smoking cessation, health awareness, and routine surveillance. Treating comorbidities and also reducing exposure through the use of medical masks and respirators, robots, isolation of harmful processes, ventilation, limiting exposure hours, maintenance of dust control systems, and the use of warning signs.
