Hi, bronchitis and emphysema are lung diseases which belong to the group of chronic obstructive pulmonal diseases. Main cause of these two diseases is cigarette smoke. Symptoms are similar and main one is coughing. Emphysema is collapsing of air sacks in the lungs and capturing of air. This reduces active part of lungs and patient feels lack of air.
